Frequently Asked Questions

What is coaching?

The International Coaching Federation (ICF, 2018) defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.

The process of coaching clients may involve the coach utilizing questionnaires and assessment tools; asking questions to not only gather information, but to also elicit the self-awareness and insight of clients; actively listening; jointly developing relevant between-session work with clients; helping clients to identify their resources (e.g., experience and qualities); helping clients to create strategies to overcome blocks to success; working with clients toward promoting a high degree of self-care; and helping clients to identify their values and vision. A key aspect of the coaching relationship is in developing appropriate action steps to help clients move forward toward their goals and aspirations.

Can I get my organization to pay for my coaching?

It's possible to get your organization to pay for or reimburse you for coaching as part of your professional development. We suggest that you check with your manager or human resources department to find out if this is something the organization may do for you.

Who is considered coachable?

Not everyone is coachable. You're coachable if you're receptive and willing to make changes based on feedback, enthusiastic when presented with new challenges, willing to experience discomfort or have difficult conversations, open to new ways of looking at a situation, committed to continued growth, and willing to be held accountable.

What is your cancellation policy? 

Once you schedule your appointment(s), that time is reserved in the schedule for you. If you have to cancel or reschedule, a minimum 24-hour notice is required. With the required notice, the session can be rescheduled or canceled without a fee. However, if you do not give the required notice, you will forfeit the fee for that session.
