How does a coaching assignment unfold?
- It all starts with a discussion, over an hour or so, free of any commitment, just to understand your requirements and give you some tips. Then, the decision is yours.
- The prescribing client may attend this first meeting.
- The coaching assignment will comprise 7 to 9 sessions, over a few months.
Session will last about one hour and a quarter each, and follow a structured process, which the coach is responsible for.
- Often, concrete actions must be taken between sessions.
- The last session is an opportunity for the client to assess the work , and to consider “openings” on future prospects.
