Coaching provides a PARTNERSHIP and a PATHWAY to PERSONAL EXCELLENCE
A PARTNERSHIP: The coaching partnership is a powerful relationship. The partnership is founded on respect, honesty and confidentiality. The great value of coaching is that you don’t have to pursue personal or professional growth alone. Amanda, as your personal coach, will provide you with support, insight, feedback and accountability; along with being a sounding board, motivator and confidant.
A PATHWAY: Growth and change tend to be gradual and progressive therefore coaching is a journey and a process. Coaching provides a creative and supportive pathway to move you forward into your future. Different coaching methods are used to help you clarify and achieve your desired direction and destination.
TO PERSONAL EXCELLENCE: Coaching is all about excelling in every area of your life. The aim of coaching is for you to realize your dreams, achieve your goals and increase your performance. It also focuses on strengthening all different areas of your life … your confidence, character, relationships, habits, attitudes, personal management and leadership skills. Coaching is all about empowering you to live your best.
COACHING PROGRAMS AND PROCESS
Life Coaching and Leadership Coaching Programs offered by My Personal Coach are tailor made for every individual. The content, duration and frequency of the coaching program are mutually determined in the initial appointment. Coaching generally takes place over 4-12 sessions for the duration of 2-12 months and appointments are weekly, fortnightly or monthly. Generally it is recommended an initial 6 session program be taken up, meeting on a fortnightly basis. Careers Coaching on the on the other hand are set programs with 2 – 4 sessions, however the content and flow of the coaching program is adapted to the individual as every client’s needs, goals and context are different.
Coaching takes place in person, over the phone or through Skype. A regular time and location is mutually agreed upon and appointments are for one hour. The beauty of phone or Skype coaching is that it can take place nationally or internationally, in the comfort of your own home or office, and time is not wasted getting to and from appointments. On the other hand, if you live in Sydney, Australia, the face to face contact is personal and powerful. This coaching can be in a quiet cafe, your office, at home or even outside in a park. If we do meet in a cafe, it’s my shout to a coffee or beverage. Between sessions you may have ongoing contact through email communication.
The first session is a time where the coaching relationship is established and specific goals are set. A brief overview of your life will be discussed. Most importantly, where you are now and where you want to be in the future will be determined … along with the steps, pathways and hindrances to getting there. The proceeding sessions are focused on personal and professional growth as you move forward to achieving your goals.
As a coach, Amanda recognises that your answers and your future already lie within YOU! Throughout your coaching experience she will help you identify these answers and support you to make significant life changes by using different tools, techniques and resources. Examples are:
- Solution focused approach
- The GROW model
- Effective questioning (open, probing, hypothetical, reflective questions)
- NLP techniques (anchoring, reframing, perceptual positions)
- Personality and temperament profiling
- StrengthsFinder assessment
- Mind mapping techniques
- Wheel of life (life balance checklist)
- Self assessment questionnaires (to identify core purpose, passions, values, beliefs)
- Business, project or 30 day development plans
- Time and stress management tools
- Informative resource files
- Goal setting templates
Coaching costs differ according to the length of each session and the number of sessions in a program. Additional factors which determine the cost is your location and whether coaching will take place in person, or via Phone or Skype. In general a coaching session will range from $110 – $150 an hour. Coaching packages are available for 4, 6, 9 or 12 sessions. Prices are incrementally reduced, the greater the number of sessions or staff in a program and if upfront payment takes place. In an initial phone call or appointment the number of sessions will be mutually determined based on what an individual wants to attain in the coaching partnership and to achieve whilst being coached.
