There is much more to coaching than simply picking up the phone at a pre-arranged serious amounts of connecting with your client for a 30 minute chat! The old axiom “You only get through it, what you included in it” was never more true than for your coaching session. The client must receive maximum value from the session, an enormous coach receives maximum fees.
If you want to facilitate the successful achievement of your client’s Desired Outcome, every one of your coaching sessions must be purposeful, results-driven and goal-oriented! If you want to charge top coaching fees, you better be to be able to go the extra mile and turn your coaching session into a coaching experience.
There are many elements that make up a properly executed coaching session. A couple of the 10 session criteria that I consider essential for creating a coaching experience!
Before I connect with a client, I always allow myself a quarter-hour to properly get ready for the session. This is the time when I all of the following:
I review all of my notes.
Every time I conduct a coaching session, I take detailed notes on everything that happens during the period. I am always amazed at how many coaches rely on memory from one session to the other. If you don’t take notes, you are attain a great credible and professional coach! Winging is actually also for the the destruction!
I check my nutrition coaching Timeline.
Every Coaching Program that I plan a client conditional on a 3 – 6 month schedule. I use this timeline to hold both the client and myself critical to achieving measurable progress toward a Desired Outcome.
I read the “Prep Sheet”.
Prior to every session, my clients submit a Coaching Prep Sheet where they write a short summary of the progress they made since the last session and where they want spend some extra time during the next session.
I prepare a Session Agenda.
Based on the notes, timeline and prep sheet, I create a simple agenda that Let me use to maintain ones coaching session in order and on some time. Now I’m ready to make the call!
When you practice a coaching session with your client, it is vital that you are in associated with the conversation consistently!You are the conductor of the “coaching bus” your client is the passenger! While your client may have a trip of places he or she wants to go, you’re the an individual that is driving the bus that will drive them there!
This is particularly true if you’re giving out a free initial coaching session! You’re passenger hasn’t even paid for the bus ticket yet, so don’t let them grab the rim! If they can drive the bus themselves, why do they need you? Yet so many coaches allow their clients to “hijack” the coaching bus and take control of the session.
If you to be able to deliver a quality coaching session, you have to be in command! How do you maintain control? By asking questions!
Lead the conversation by asking situations! These questions must be targeted and focused on the desired Outcome. Listen intently to your client’s answers!
Ask more considerations! Maintain control! And then wait for the “Coaching Climax”!
Creating Coaching Sexual climaxes.
A Coaching Climax is the ‘mental trigger’ that validates and authenticates a pivotal point from a coaching session.I deliberately chose the word ‘climax’ as a metaphor for the powerful impact found on on a coaching client.A skillful Coach can achieve multiple Coaching Climaxes to get a client during a coaching session.
If your client does not experience at least one coaching climax cons 15 minutes of coaching, your coaching session did not measure up to the rigorous standards on a Coaching EXPERT!
A sure-fire technique keep your clients motivated and ready is to provide measurable accomplishments during and following each coaching session.Recognize the progress the client has made when the last session and point out any recent ‘milestones’ that he/she has got a chance to.A ‘Success Formula’ is created when a string of ‘milestones’ are recorded along side path to achieving a Desired Judgment.
Keeping focus across the Desired Outcome.
If you don’t keep focus during the Desired Outcome, the client may start to wander in different directions. While you certainly do not need to stifle any chance your clients to achieve a Coaching Climax, you must guard against any random deviations from the session agenda. If you don’t, the session will miss its objective and end up being difficult to record in your notes in the context of the overall Desired Outcome.
