We have coaching experience and success in the legal profession and with sales professionals in several industries (please see Testimonials and About Your Coach web pages for further details). However, we have been careful to craft our coaching programs in such a manner that it applies equally well to a number of different professions and industries. We can address your particular situation directly in our initial-trial coaching session.
There is no pat answer. Each situation and each individual are unique. Therefore, an initial-trial session is offered to test the waters for mutual compatibility and effectiveness. If we both agree that our coaching programs can benefit you, the next recommended step is a six-session commitment. It’s better known as a “starter” engagement in which we explore your business or professional concerns and how best to address and solve them.
Your privacy is our top priority. Every service agreement has a confidentiality statement that all parties sign.
They can be held at your business location, an agreed-upon meeting place, or by telesession, whichever you prefer. I recommend meeting for the first time in person whenever possible.
No there isn’t, but there is a service agreement which we both sign if you agree to use the coaching services after your exploratory coaching session. A service agreement helps you by defining your level of commitment to the coaching relationship and my commitment to you. You then decide if it’s in your best interest to be coached.
Coaching & Beyond can help you discover and initiate what you need to change, how you need to do it, and the best time frame to do so. As each goal is realized, it motivates you to commit to completing the process.
Your coach can be an objective “sounding board” that may not be otherwise available to you in your organization, or that you prefer not to use.
The first step in this process is to identify how we can best use your inherent skills and strengths to maximize your ability for success. Coaching can be instrumental in this process and be the vehicle that you can use to reach your goal.
At Coaching & Beyond, you have a choice of programs and modules that can be tailored to your needs or your company’s so that you can achieve tangible results.
