When you hire me, here are the steps you can expect and how we will work together.
Step One: Learning Who You Are and About Your Goals
First we get a “big picture” view of where you are with your goals and projects, as well as who you are and what you want to get out of coaching. Together we will take a good look at where you are now, where you want to go, and how we will get you there. This is usually done via one or two phone calls to establish the basis of our coaching relationship. What is it you really need?
Step Two: The Three Pillars
Digging deeper, we will distinguish what I think of as the three pillars of life– your “who,” “what,” and “why.” WHO: Your essence or true self, as well as the survival mechanisms that create resistance. WHAT: Project plans that will empower the achievement of your goals and make them real. WHY: Your life’s purpose– what those goals really mean to you!
Step Three: Doing the Work
This is the real core of the coaching relationship. Typically, this stage consists of weekly one-hour phone or video calls (4/month). On these calls we track your progress, identify and process both breakdowns and breakthroughs, and help you create powerful practices to get you where you want to go. This stage may be focused on a single project that you want to complete, or you may have several goals you want to take on. You set the agenda.
Step Four: Completion
When is the process complete? It may be at the finish of the project, it may be after a set amount of time, or between the two of us we may simply decide it’s time to take stock, see where things are, and generate something new. During this phase we take an inventory of the “before” and “after” so you can see how far you’ve come, the milestones you’ve achieved, and the next steps to set you up for success in the future. It doesn’t have to mean “goodbye”– clients often find at the end of a project, that they have a whole new world of possibilities to explore! Where do you want to go next?
