The process starts when you identify a purpose for coaching and decide that now is the time to pursue it. Some examples of coaching goals people have chosen to work on with me include (but are not limited to)…
… maximizing productivity or performance … enhancing leadership skills and team performance … improving energy management and work-life balance … increasing career focus and setting professional priorities … interpreting and integrating feedback for optimal performance … maximizing strengths ... overcoming barriers such as creativity block, conflict, lack of fit, excessive demands, team dynamics, organizational politics, and unmet expectations
Step 2: Call
Once you have identified a purpose for coaching and decided that the time is right, call me and share your thoughts. During this no-cost phone consultation, I will tell you directly whether or not your goal is a good fit for my coaching, and you can decide if my style and personality are a good fit for you.
Step 3: Schedule
If you feel comfortable with me during the phone consultation and decide to move forward, then we schedule an appointment for a coaching assessment and initial session. At this time, we discuss scheduling options, plus your preferred modality of coaching (in-person, phone, secure video conference). If you live or work in Los Angeles and fall within my travel boundaries, I will come to you. If you work or reside outside of my L.A. travel boundaries, we can meet via secure video conference.
Step 4: Meet
Our initial meeting will start with an assessment of your needs and goals, which we then develop into a coaching agreement. This agreement will drive the process, keeping you focused on a bigger picture goal/ outcome, while also helping you develop specific objectives to accomplish each session that support your larger goal. The coaching agreement also helps you define progress/ success, and serves as an anchor that reminds you why your goals are important to you. Meetings take place bi-weekly to monthly, depending on your needs and progress, and always conclude with action steps for you to work on between sessions.
