How individual executive coaching works

Exploratory meeting and coaching set-up

An exploratory conversation with the person to be coached is set up to discuss their challenges and the changes they’d like to make.  There may also be a conversation with their line manager or sponsor to discuss their expectations.  These conversations are at no cost to you.  Where appropriate we then have a 3-way meeting to include the person to be coached and their line manager and/or the HR manager. This meeting is to clarify expectations and roles for the coaching, establish individual and organisational needs, agree confidentiality and ask any questions.  The meeting is without obligation.  If I feel able to provide the right coaching for you and your organisation, and you feel I am the right coach, we will agree a clear contract to include confidentiality, objectives, process and costs.

Coaching sessions

Once payment has been made, I meet with each individual face to face either at my Nottingham base, at their organisation (travel costs apply), or over the telephone. Sessions take place during the normal working day usually 3 times per month for up to one hour. The first session is to finalise the goals and success measures for the coaching in line with the objectives discussed and to establish our working relationship.  Each session then explores challenges, opportunities and goals, and identifies practical steps to overcome obstacles and achieve success. The participant will have work to do between sessions to help them gain maximum value from the coaching.  The sessions are confidential between the coach and each individual – the only sharing of session details with other members of the organisation is with the express approval of the individual being coached.

Review sessions

At or towards the end of the coaching the participant and I review their achievements and agree any action plan for the future.  Often a 3-way meeting is held to discuss progress against objectives and check value from the coaching for the client and the organisation. Any additional support can be identified at this point.  Further review sessions can be held at any time, with the agreement of the client, organisation and coach.

The sessions are invoiced and paid for in advance.
