Dos and don’ts

How to begin

The single most important factor in coaching is the relationship between the coach and coachee. Experience, qualifications and accreditations are all important but none matter if you don’t feel you can work with the person coaching you.

The first step, therefore, is to meet with at least one coach. People seeking coaching are often not completely clear about the outcomes they are seeking. A good coach will use an introductory session to help you (and them) get clear about what the coaching is trying to achieve and why. This conversation will also allow you to get a feel for the coach, their approach and whether you feel that you can work with them. You’ll know when you’ve got the right coach when you can answer these questions:

If you don’t feel comfortable having met them then you should try another coach – and keep doing so until you find someone who you feel comfortable with and confident in.

Let's Talk

The easiest way to understand how we can help, and whether you feel that you could work with us, is to begin with a conversation.

We don't believe in a "hard sell" and often find that people get value out of the exploratory discussion - whether or not we go on to work together.
