What is The Process Like?
The term „coaching“ originally comes from „coach“, „coachman“, who has the task of steering the horses safely and quickly to their destination. So the coach does not have the task to pull the carriage, but to bring it safely to the destination. This meaning, to support someone to reach a goal quickly and safely, has been preserved in the term „coach“ until today. (König & Volmer, 2008)
In a first step, we get to know each other briefly and see if the chemistry fits and a collaboration makes sense. Not every coachee and coach fit together. However, it is essential that you feel comfortable, because only then a process develops.
2. Orientation Phase & Goals
To start off we focus on what issues bring you here, and what are possible topics to work on and what is the goal of the session. What do you want to take with you as a result after the conclusion of this conversation?
3. Clarification & Reality Check
In this phase I support you in understanding the problematic situation in detail as well as the factors involved. This will also make you more aware of the related consequences and new possible solutions.
After you have become aware of the factors that influenced the situation and led to it, the next step is to look at the solutions. What solutions are there and which are worth testing?
5. Closure & What's next
Finally, the result and the findings are discussed. Subsequently, the action plan with the next concrete steps is determined.
