The Executive Coaching Process
It's all about you.
You can come up with the right answers for your own life and career, but you may not know the right questions. In coaching sessions you will decide what you want to talk about, and I will listen and ask questions you may not have considered. You will make your own decisions about what to do.
I am on your side—a source of support exclusively concerned with your wants and needs during each session. Sometimes I'll push you, challenging your view of the world; my job is to prompt you to assess your current situation and future options in fresh and novel ways, giving you new eyes to see yourself and your surroundings.
It doesn't matter who pays the bill, your sessions are just between you and me. You should not sign up for coaching unless YOU want to see some difference in your life. What you discuss with me and what you decide to do is your business and yours alone—a conversation I am happy to have with your boss or training officer.
Sometimes you'll want help thinking through what you truly want. Sometimes you'll know, and we'll concentrate on how you might achieve your ambitions. Sometimes you'll recognize that a change you may not welcome is on its way. Then, we'll explore how to make it work best for you. Whatever your situation, coaching can help you learn to listen to your heart, trust your gut, read your environment, and uncover powerful, life-enhancing options.
Time for Change
Coaching takes a lot of time and effort—yours and mine. You should probably plan for around 15 one-hour sessions—less than one day out of a lifetime, but a commitment that will make a difference long into your future.
Once we've met, and decided there will be a value in working together, we will both sign a coaching agreement.
We will work out a payment plan, based on your needs. Payment is by cash or check. Sessions cancelled with less than 24 hours notice will be charged at full price.
Sessions usually take place once every two weeks, but you are free to choose the schedule that works best for you.
You can choose to be coached in your office, or at home. I am available to coach in Washington, DC, in College Park, MD or in Anne Arundel County, MD.
