You know what I love?
Integrity - being honest and having strong moral principles.
This is why I put together this list of what you can expect and what not to expect when working with me. I prefer that you know in advance what you're committing to rather than having other expectations which can lead to disappointment. Hopefully this will help you make a more informed decision of whether or not you want to work with me.
What is Coaching?
I adopt the International Coach Federation’s (ICF) definition of coaching quoted in part which is as follows:
Professional Coaching is an ongoing professional relationship that helps people produce extraordinary results in their lives, careers, businesses or organisations. Through the process of coaching, clients deepen their learning, improve their performance, and enhance their quality of life.
In each meeting, the client chooses the focus of conversation, while the coach listens and contributes observations and questions. This interaction creates clarity and moves the client into action. Coaching accelerates the client’s progress by providing greater focus and awareness of choice. Coaching concentrates on where clients are now and what they are willing to do to get where they want to be in the future. Coaches recognise that results are a matter of the client’s intentions, choices and actions, supported by the coach’s efforts and application of the coaching process.
Here's what you can expect:
Honesty - real talk, no glitz and glamour, no polishing stuff or pretence because in order to know where we're going, we need to be real and truthful about where we are.
Confidentiality - the strictest levels of confidentiality is maintained with all client and sponsor information. In addition, Way2BetterBusiness adheres fully to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) 2018 act.
Clarity - this is what I refer to as the drilling in process when I ask a lot of questions in order to know exactly what you expect to get from each session.
Vision - we will work together to ensure that you have a clear vision for your personal life as well as your business.
Action - together, we will set action steps you will need to take before our next session. Nelson Mandela stated it well - "Action without vision is only passing time, vision without action is merely day dreaming, but vision with action can change the world".
Accountability - Accountability is one of the most important elements of any successful business coaching relationship. I will expect a level of responsibility on your part to take steps which will help you to move closer to your goal.
Follow up - My goal is to ensure that you take action so you can expect follow up calls and emails to see how you're getting on and to determine if we need to make any changes to the action plan.
Motivation - I will cheer you on and celebrate with you as you take steps towards your goal.
