A great coaching session for me is when the client is no longer a passenger on their own bus and through working together they are empowered to take to the drivers seat with a clear map of what sucess looks like and how to get there.

Kerrin

Wallace

There are a few characteristics that I think make a great coaching session. One of the most important for me is trust - clients have to trust that I will ask relevant questions, challenge their ideas and suggest alternatives when appropriate. In return, they need to trust that I will listen, understand what they are saying and help them move forward on their own or with some collaborative action on my part.
