What is Coaching?
Coaching is the process of possibility discovery and then moving people into action.
Coaching is a completely confidential, interactive process that helps individuals set better goals, take more effective action, make better decisions, and more fully use their natural strengths.
Professional coaches are trained to listen and observe, to customize their approach to the individual client's needs, and to elicit solutions and strategies from the client. While the coach provides feedback and an objective perspective, the client is responsible for taking the steps to produce the results he or she desires.
What do coaches do?
Coaches help people focus on the things that are most important to them (their core values) then, move them into action to create more balanced and effective personal and professional lives.
Think of a coach as a personal trainer that stretches and exercises your mind and intellect.
What is a Session Like?
You are the focus of every session. The coach will ask you powerful questions and listen to the responses. Often there is more than one message in a response. We will discover what is, what you want, what happens next and how we will get you there. We will work on creating the life you want. Practice makes permanent. You will be supported held accountable to your life agenda.
A free introductory session of coaching is offered. This enables us to feel each other out a bit and to see if we would make a good partnership.
Sessions are handled over the phone, over the computer via Skype or in person in 20-45 minute blocks. This is an efficient, effective and powerful method for both of us to zoom in and focus on the current coaching issue(s) and get on with the day. In addition to scheduled sessions, I make myself available for quick-coaching (5-10 minute sessions) to share successes, review an issue or to bounce ideas.
What Coaching is Not
Coaching is not psychotherapy. It does not focus directly on relieving psychological pain or treating cognitive or emotional disorders. Coaching is about creating new awareness and new opportunities and moving you into action.
It is a confidential process not tied to performance outcomes unless arranged by the supervisor and agreed to by the client (employee). Even then, the coach does not report back to the supervisor.
How Will This Work?
Craig works with clients on a need be basis, by phone, email and/or in person. This will be set up individually around training needs and budget. Rates range from $70-$400 per month for individuals.
Coaching has the freedom and flexibility to address a wide variety of personal and professional topics. In any given coaching relationship, coach and client alone determine the scope of their work. Coaching is not necessarily restricted to a narrowly defined issue nor is its scope determined in any other way.
Contribution to Results
In coaching, any contribution the coach makes to produce the client's desired outcome is through on-going interaction with the client. The coach's role does not include producing a contracted product or result outside of the coaching sessions.
Coaching is designed to provide clients with a greater capacity to produce results and a greater confidence in their ability to do so. It is intended that clients do not leave coaching with a perception that they need to rely on a coach in order to produce similar results in the future.
Craig Bodoh holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Social Science and has been coaching people since 1981.
