What Is Coaching?

AchieveCoaching is a structured conversation between the Coach and the Client used to empower individuals and help them reach their goals.

During a coaching session I will walk by your side to help you to reach your ultimate goal and aspirations. I will listen to you, ask questions, find out what your challenges are and inspire you to reach that end goal.

You will be encouraged to make decisions and take responsibility for these decisions.

What coaching is not.

Coaching is not about your coach giving you suggestions or advice. I am not mentoring or counselling you.

If you begin a series of coaching sessions and it is deemed that coaching is not the correct support mechanism for you at this moment in time this will be discussed with you directly to find a suitable solution to support your onward journey.

How does coaching work?

I use a method called the GROW; Goals, Reality, Options and Way forward.

This model keeps you moving forward towards your goal. I will be asking you questions, listening to your responses, challenging you whilst all the time remaining non-judgemental regarding the details.

What will happen during a coaching session?

You, the client, will contact me, the coach after arranging a convenient time and date.

You will be guided through a 6-point process.

  1. Review the previous session and the actions that you completed
  2. Set the goal for that session
  3. Consider where you are at the present moment with this goal
  4. Consider your options in meeting this goal
  5. Agree on some actions
  6. Summarise the session before completing the session.

Each session will be for your agreed length of time. The coach will manage the timing of the session and ensure you gain full value from the session.

All sessions will remain confidential.

 

What does the coach need from you during a session?

To make sure that your time is being well spent with your coach it is to your advantage to come to the session fully prepared and with a goal or aspiration in mind that you would like to work towards. Ofcourse, your coach can also help you design and set your goal in session if preferred.

Preparation is very important for the coaching session so you are encouraged to spend 15 minutes prior to the session taking yourself to an environment where you will not be disturbed, with a drink and feeling refreshed to relax prior to the start of the session. You will also need to ensure that you have a pen and paper to hand and any other items that you may think will be useful such as a diary.
