How does coaching work?
Coaching is all about getting results. Whether in a single meeting or over a series of meetings, the client and the coach begin by agreeing upon specific results that the client wants. The coach asks the client questions aimed at increasing the client’s awareness about beliefs he or she holds, options he or she has, and what’s most important to him or her in achieving those results. And because coaching is about achieving results, the coach encourages the client to come up with next steps he or she will take toward achieving those results.
What “work” is done during a coaching meeting?
The coach serves as the tour guide for the meeting, asking questions and pointing out what she observes in language, tone, thought patterns, etc. The coach will be the client’s supportive partner as she explores her goals, obstacles, and thoughts, and works toward the result identified for that meeting. In the end, the client may or may not get your result, and that’s perfectly fine. What’s most important is the awareness that the client gains, and the “next steps” that she designs as a result of the coaching meeting.
A coach is available 7 days a week. Karen Chontofalsky, Ed Kato, and John Hutchings are available to meet at Nelson Hall, Jenkins MBA RTP campus, and virtually via Google Hangout or phone.
