If you’ve chosen the coaching package, you’ll also receive 3 x 1-hour individual coaching sessions which aim to help you improve your leadership confidence when combined with the online lessons.
When you enrol, I will work with you to determine the best time to complete the sessions. I find that one coaching session every 2 weeks works well – especially when you are completing the online course modules in between.
These sessions most often focus on removing barriers and overcoming challenges that reduce your confidence – which could include many different aspects of leadership.
For example, we might discuss topics like team motivation or time management – it really depends on your situation and the best way to help you build confidence and remove barriers.
At the end of the coaching sessions, it’s common for us to develop actions that you’ll undertake to move forward and improve. We’ll also keep in touch until the next coaching session so I can check on the progress of your actions (the accountability factor – which is very important!) and you can ask any questions.
Scheduling the Coaching Sessions
I live in Australia, so I might be in a different timezone than you. However, I have successfully coached clients from many different countries and this has never been a problem.
I use an online booking system which allows you to select multiple appointment options, so we can schedule times that will suit both of us. The online system is very easy to use and always makes it easier to align our busy calendars!
I often perform coaching sessions outside of my normal business hours, so I’m sure I will be able to accommodate your schedule.
What You Need for the Online Coaching
The individual sessions will be held using Zoom, which is an online video conferencing platform.
You don’t need any special software (it is accessed through a website), but you will need access to a computer / laptop / tablet with an internet connection, camera and microphone or headphones. The best place to do the coaching is somewhere quiet, where you won’t be interrupted.
It’s up to you whether we use video or just audio for the coaching – some people prefer audio-only while others like the face-to-face aspect of using video. Both methods are effective, so I leave the choice up to you.
Note: If we have complications with the Zoom service, my backup is to use Skype.
