What Comprises a Coaching Relationship?

At one of my recent speaking events, a couple people asked me what my coaching sessions are like.

When somebody goes through to the onboarding phase of coaching, they go through three basic modules, starting with one that reaffirms what the coaching relationship is. The second is a discovery module of about 25 questions that help me understand who a person is, and how I can help them get unstuck or move forward in the coaching sessions.

The third module is all about understanding the process of the objectives. What are we reaching for? What are we going towards? What do we want to accomplish? Sometimes it’s to double income, sometimes it’s to improve leadership with their team; there’s a myriad of reasons.

The in-coaching, as I would call it, and how I help my clients, starts before the session when my clients answer five very specific questions that are very transformational.

The questions are:
1. What were your successes in the last week?
2. What did you say you were going to do that you didn’t get done?
3. How are you feeling based on your performance this week?
4. What do you want to do over the next week?
5. How can I help you as a coach?

Those five questions then engage us in a conversation. There’s a skill and a craft in the relationship that I form with people as well as the process that I go through in coaching. It’s easy for me to describe but hard to understand if you haven’t been through it.

At the very end, I will ask very specific questions yet again to confirm what you say you’re going to do over the next week.

Then I always ask, “On a scale of 1-10, how was this time that we spent together?” Then there’s the post-session notes that we share with each other as we go through the transformation process.

Hopefully, that helps you better understand how I help my clients. It’s a very detailed process so that we’re always moving forward. If you think it could be useful for you, send me an email, a text or a call with any questions I can help you with!

How we helped Brett Lascko grow as a leader.

“I’m still working with Rich, I’m not done quite yet. He’s been helping me deal with people issues in my office and helps me become a better communicator. We do coaching calls every week and it helps me grow as a leader. It also helps promote people within my company to be better leaders for the people that are working for them within my company. And sometimes it’s like talking to a therapist! It’s an attentive ear that I can talk to that gives me good information on things to try both inside and outside of our company.

I can say that any time I call he’ll answer or he’ll call back. I haven’t had any problems showing up or making appointments. Any hour of the day, even the weekend, he’s always there for me if I need help. I can’t say anything bad about that at all!”

What Would You Do for More Success?

Do you remember those old Klondike bar commercials? What would you do for one? Probably not a whole lot. But let’s think about something else. What would you do for more success in your business? Or what would you do to double your income?

It’s probably going to take a very formulaic and structured system to double your income and become more successful, but would you be willing to do that in order to reach your goals?

First you need clarity, and after that, you have to overcome your fears and limiting beliefs that are stopping you from achieving your goals. You will need to develop skills and polish ones that you already have. It will take time and it will be difficult, but it will be worth it.

So, what’s holding you back from accomplishing all of these goals? Sometimes it’s yourself and sometimes it’s other people. But I just want to get you thinking about it today. What would you do if you could double your income this year?

I can point you to the success that you desire, all we need to do is begin a dialogue.

I look forward to hearing from you!
