How It Works

 

Your Role

  • Before our first session, I will ask you to check the Are You Coachable? tab on this website to ensure you are in the right mindset for coaching.

  • Once you confirm you feel you are in the right mindset for coaching, I will ask you to complete the Client Data Sheet and Coaching Terms document and fax or e-mail it back to me.

  • Once we have established a session schedule, please take time before each session to complete and e-mail the Session Prep Questions.  Use this as a template to create a new email for your responses every week.  The most crucial part is for you to name what you’d like to take away from the session.  This is called the Client Agenda.

  • Please arrive to every session on time.

  • Come to your session centered and ready to engage.

  • Give me feedback in the moment about your coaching experience—what works as well as what does not.

 

 

My Role

  • I will listen closely to you, respond to what I hear, and ask questions.

  • If I hear something in your voice or language that sparks an intuitive thought, I'm likely to ask you about it.

  • Often the small moments bring about big shifts.  If I'm not on target, just tell me.  I'm not attached to being "right".

  • At the end of the session, if you do not mention what actions you are ready to take, I will make a coach request.

  • I ask clients to stretch themselves and deepen the work done in the sessions by writing or taking some action in resolving relationships or things that feel incomplete.

  • You are free to negotiate, accept, or decline any coach request.

 

Extra Time

  • Between sessions, if you have questions, a brief update, or want to discuss some ideas, please contact me by phone or e-mail.  Please keep these contacts brief.

  • If it seems like it will be better served as session material, I'll suggest we arrange an additional session.

 

Ways to Enhance Your Coaching Experience

  • Make our coaching sessions a priority. Come to every call with a specific agenda and a clear understanding of what you’d like to take away from the session.

  • Do your own work between sessions. Use what you learn. Complete the actions you agree to carry out.

  • If you like, you may complete the 10 Goals in 90 Days document to help you focus on short-term goals.

  • Be open-minded. Try new approaches. Experiment.

  • Be willing to change your beliefs and patterns if they no longer serve you.

 

Fees

  • Fees are determined by the type of coaching requested.

  • I will send you an invoice through PAY-PAL via e-mail 24-48 hours in advance of each session scheduled. Please pay this invoice AT LEAST 1 HOUR BEFORE our call.  Please print and keep receipts of these payments for your records.

  • My fees may be tax deductible as a business expense.  Please check with your CPA.  Costs for coaching may also be covered by your health insurance.  Please check with your health insurance provider.

 

Session Procedures

  • Please call me at 770-739-6960 for our scheduled session.

  • If you call and reach my voice mail, please leave a message and wait for me to call you back, as I may not receive your message between clients.

  • Please give our call high priority and arrange your schedule to honor our agreed-upon time.

  • If you must reschedule our call, please give me 24 hours notice.  In any case, let me know as soon as you are able.

  • I will not reschedule no-call/no-shows.

  • If you have vacation or business trips that will conflict with our session, please notify me of these as soon as you have an itinerary, and we will discuss when to reschedule.
