Coaching is an investment of time and money, and you want to be sure you will get the best return on both.
So, let's dive right in and explore how you can ensure you're finding the right coach and get value for your hard-earned money when working with a leadership coach.
Finding the Right Fit 🤝
Take the time to research and have introductory sessions with potential coaches. Trust your instincts. You should feel comfortable, understood, and challenged all at once.
Set Clear Goals and Expectations 🎯
Communicate these goals to your coach, and work together to establish a roadmap for your sessions.
Own of Your Growth 🌱
Take ownership of your personal and professional development. Implement what you learn in your coaching sessions into your daily life and work.
This sounds so easy, but however valuable the coaching session is, it is easy for the day-to-day to take over. Schedule time for personal reflection, practice, and implementation of your action plan.
Be Open and Honest 🗣️
Embrace Feedback 📣
Discuss it with your coach and explore strategies for improvement. Embracing feedback accelerates progress and leads to greater success.
Be Committed and Consistent 🚀
Be Patient with Yourself 🕰️
Be patient with yourself, and remember that growth often involves two steps forward and one step back. Your coach should be a cheerleader and supporter, giving you the confidence to try, but ultimately, it will be for you to shove yourself out of your comfort zone and try new approaches.
That is why I offer my clients support between meetings via WhatsApp or voice notes. If you have a question or want a bit of support send a WhatsApp, and I will get back to you.

Communicate with Your Coach 🗨️
Reflect and Review📚
I recommend that my clients get an A5 notebook and use it over the coaching programme. Having your reflection and actions in one place makes it easy to look back and see what you have achieved, what you have learned and what you need to do next.
Keep Learning 🌈
Pay It Forward 🤝
Remember, the best leadership coaching experience is a partnership between you and your coach. It's a dynamic process that can lead to profound personal and professional growth when approached with dedication and an open spirit.
