There is much more to coaching than simply picking up the phone at a pre-arranged time and connecting with your client for a 30 minute chat! The old axiom “You only get from your it, what you fit into it” was never more true than for your coaching session. The client must receive maximum value from the session, while the coach receives maximum fees.
If you want to facilitate the successful achievement of your client’s Desired Outcome, every one of your coaching sessions must be purposeful, results-driven and goal-oriented! If you want to charge top coaching fees, you better be in order to go the extra mile and turn your coaching session into a coaching experience.
There are many elements that form a properly executed coaching session. Right here the 10 session criteria that I consider essential for creating a coaching experience!
Before I depend on a client, I usually allow myself a quarter-hour to properly organize the session. Right here is the time when I do all of the following:
I review my notes.
Every time I conduct a coaching session, I take detailed notes on everything that happens during the procedure. I am always amazed at just how many coaches rely on memory from one session to the other. If you don’t take notes, you are not a credible and professional coach! Winging every person for the at times the damage!
I check my Coaching Timeline.
Every Coaching Program that I you’ll find a client uses a 3 – 6 month timeline. I use this timeline to hold both the client and myself the agent responsible for achieving measurable progress toward a Desired Outcome.
I read the “Prep Sheet”.
Prior to every session, my clients submit a Coaching Prep Sheet where they write a brief summary of the progress they made since the last session and where they want spend some extra time during the next session.
I prepare a Session Agenda.
Based on the notes, timeline and prep sheet, I create a simple agenda that I will use to keep the coaching session on track and on some time. Now I’m ready to make the phone call!
When you practice a coaching session with your client, it is vital that you are in associated with the conversation at all times!You are the conductor of your “coaching bus” with your client is the passenger! While your client may have an itinerary of places they wants to go, you’re the individual who is driving the actual bus that will bring them there!
This is especially true if you’re giving away a free initial coaching session! You’re passenger hasn’t even paid for public transit ticket yet, so don’t let them grab the leader! If they can drive the bus themselves, why would they need you? Yet so many coaches allow their clients to “hijack” the coaching bus and take control of this session.
If you for you to deliver a quality coaching session, you have got to be in control! How do you maintain control? By asking questions!
Lead the conversation by asking questions! These questions must be targeted and focused on the desired Outcome. Listen intently to your client’s answers!
Ask more topics! Maintain control! And then wait for the “Coaching Climax”!
Creating health coaching salary Sexual climaxes.
A Coaching Climax is the ‘mental trigger’ that validates and authenticates a pivotal point in a coaching session.I deliberately chose the word ‘climax’ as a metaphor for the powerful impact it has on a coaching client.A skillful Coach can achieve multiple Coaching Climaxes to get a client during a coaching session.
If your client does not experience at least one coaching climax cons 15 minutes of coaching, your coaching session did not measure up to your rigorous standards to a Coaching EXPERT!
A sure-fire technique keep your clients motivated and ready is to provide measurable accomplishments during and following each coaching session.Recognize the progress the client has made since the last session and point out any recent ‘milestones’ that he/she has had reached.A ‘Success Formula’ is created when a string of ‘milestones’ are recorded along the path to achieving a Desired Outcome.
Keeping focus through the Desired Outcome.
If you don’t keep focus during the Desired Outcome, customer may start to wander in different directions. While you certainly do not to be able to stifle any opportunity for your clients accomplish a Coaching Climax, you must guard against any random deviations from the session agenda. If you don’t, the session will miss its objective and get difficult to record in your notes in the context of the overall Desired Outcome.
