Coaching process


We start with an introduction. During the introduction, you tell us about your project and your ideas. You will also tell us about any hurdles you think you are or will be facing. During the intake we will ask questions to get a first impression. We conclude with a shared idea on your coaching needs.


We will carry out several sessions with intervals of between 2 to 4 weeks. The amount of sessions and the frequency of the coaching session will depend on the case. You are in the lead because in between the sessions there is work to be done. Before every session, we have an agenda with topics that are prepared and in-line with what we have agreed. We have the sessions at your workspace or ours, we agree on that on a per session basis. For each session, we agree on actions and a plan on how to execute them.


We wrap up our sessions, check if what we have delivered is what we expected and if we are happy with it. There is often a concluding action list.
