What does a Coaching Session Look Like?
In the beginning of the coaching session, the client expresses their desired topic and outcome for the session. The client and coach then spend time exploring all the opportunities, options, and possibilities as it relates to their topic.
Identify a Focus
After exploring and creating options, there comes a point in the conversation where a clear focus and/or intention becomes evident. I call this the "aha moment", where the client identifies what they need to move forward.
After identifying a focus, the conversation takes a turn toward creating an action plan. In this phase, the coach partners with the client by asking questions that help them identify the best course of action. Ultimately, the client is the one determining the actions they want to implement.
Once an action plan is set by the client, the last step in the session is to establish some form of accountability. Accountability (whether that be a person(s) or system) is an important part of the process as it provides the support needed to makes strides toward your goals.
