Consider for a moment the different styles and personalities of your colleagues, friends, neighbors, babies, or puppies. Coach personalities also run the gamut. But, ECCA coaches have one thing in common and that is to help our clients achieve goals that are the most meaningful to them. In order to do that, our first priority is to listen to you. We want to know what you want and what, if anything, threatens your ability to achieve it.
What the Best Coaches Do
The best coaches stop, drop, and roll.
We stop everything to give you our undivided attention. You are our first priority for whatever amount of time you spend with us. It is rare for our clients to create the space for reflection and clear thinking in their hectic daily routines. Therefore, you will experience clarity in minutes versus hours, days or weeks outside of your coaching session.
We drop our agendas to focus on yours. We do not look for ways to win your favor, get promoted, or set you up for our personal gain. As a result, you will experience the cumulative experience, expertise, and wisdom of a thought partner who makes it easy for you to try on different perspectives and accelerate your understanding of your own power.
We roll with you and whatever you bring to the session. We are flexible and agile in meeting the needs of our clients. Our combination of skills, knowledge, wisdom and passion help us relax with you and trust that you are the master of your destiny. Our role is to meet you where you are and help you define the path forward to your destination. As a result, you will likely experience the unexpected. And so will we. Not every session leaves you with goosebumps. In fact, most don’t. However, every session should leave you something more than you had when we began.
Our initial contact with a client inquiry typically includes a 30-minute conversation that addresses your reason for contacting us, the outcomes you desire, and a discussion about our suitability. The primary question in that first call is, “Are we a good match for each other?” Should we mutually agree to develop a coaching engagement, individual sessions are scheduled on a recurring basis.
Each session begins with a recap of information you wish to share since the previous session, and ends with the commitment you wish to focus on until the next session. The middle could cover your choice of a guided coaching agenda, a burning issue that you wish to address, or a combination of the two. Your coach will give you the opportunity to decide the coaching format that works best for you.
