WHAT TO EXPECT IN YOUR SESSIONS
During your initial session, John will ask you 1) what you want to achieve, 2) what areas you perceive are obstacles or challenges, 3) how you will define success, and 4) the level of commitment you have to your success.
Subsequent sessions will involve 1) strategy discussions about achieving your goals, 2) activities to sustain your progress, and 3) recommendations on readings, activities, and other actions you might take to expand your horizons and keep you motivated.
Keep in mind that it’s up to you to decide what you’d like to focus on in your coaching sessions. Each session should leave you feeling empowered, optimistic, and successful.
Life Coaching is a partnership of trust
Life coaching is often seen as a partnership between you and your life coach, who will gently encourage you to explore how to make positive changes in your life. A life coach should also offer support and feedback to help you to stay focused on your goals. To get the most value out of the coaching partnership, it is crucial to be open, honest, and accountable for your coaching plan and your progress in achieving your goals.
Although John will work with you, it’s your to challenge or reflect upon specific ideas to help you move forward with your life. You will never be forced to make any decisions you don’t feel comfortable with, and all sessions will be confidential, allowing you to explore your thoughts and feelings privately.
