7 Ways To Make Sure Your Coach Works For You: The missing point!

7 Ways To Make Sure Your Coach Works For You

4. Have a goal for each session

This should have been included with item number 4 but somehow got missed! It’s a short but important point…..

There is a saying, “if you don’t have an agenda you’ll end up on someone else’s”.

So we’re back with the responsibility issue again.

To make sure your coach is always working for you then along with having a clear overall goal for your work together, I would recommend you prepare for each meeting by thinking about what you want to have achieved by the time you leave.

If you arrive without a clear idea of what your outcome is then you will be tempting your coach to think about what they think you should want, and who knows what mood they might be in and what unconscious forces are driving them that day!

Some good questions to ask yourself to help you prepare might be:

  • “If we could make anything happen in this meeting, that would take me one step closer to my goal, what would that be?”
  • “If I am to leave this meeting knowing I have made progress, how will I know?”
