Students, teachers, scientists, executives, pastors, entrepreneurs-- everyone can benefit from coaching! Even coaches need coaching. Anyone who has a desire to improve any area of their personal or professional life can benefit from an appropriately designed coaching relationship.
HOW DOES COACHING WORK?
Coaching can be done in a variety of ways depending on the need of the organization or individual. The coaching may occur in person, on the phone, videoconferencing, or any combination. A simplified process would entail:
- Determining your current situation
- Establishing desired goals
- Creating a plan of action to achieve the goals
- Meeting with you to assist with the plan and ensure accountability
HOW MUCH DOES COACHING COST?
There is no set cost in coaching. Each person is unique, and there are several factors involved when developing a coaching plan. For example:
- Do the conversations take place in-person or remotely?
- What is the frequency and duration of meetings?
- Is it a focused short-term goal or a longer-term comprehensive goal?
- Will it be individual or small group centered?
The hourly rates can range from $100-$500 or higher depending on the complexity of your needs.
Some coaches offer standard coaching programs or a la carte services for fixed fees that cost from $300 to over $10,000 per month.
IS THERE A MINIMUM AMOUNT OF TIME THAT I HAVE TO COMMIT TO COACHING?
No. Just like the cost, the length of the coaching relationship will vary with the person. Depending on your needs, an initial coaching relationship could range anywhere from six weeks to six months.
Some people prefer to establish a fixed number of meetings before starting the coaching process.
