Coaching protocols are customized to each person’s needs and situation.
This takes the form of one-to-one meetings that are focused on the agenda of the person being coached (coachee). These meetings imply at the outset:
- A discussion with the coachee’s leader or other appropriate stakeholders to determine the course of action.
- A first meeting with the coachee in order to establish rapport and to test drive our work together.
- Development of an action plan with the coachee and desired outcomes.
- A time point to measure progress and to ensure that progress continues.
Duration and frequency of meetings:
Usually, meetings occur more frequently at the outset of the coaching relationship and are reduced over time as their goals are met and a high level of self-sufficiency and self-determination is established. As a parameter of timing meetings are 2 hours every 2 weeks with a recommended period of 3 months with the possibility that this may be extended to 6 months.
Some sessions can be done over the telephone or online.
