Are there professional standards for the coaching industry?

How will I know you are the right coach for me?
During our Get Acquainted Strategy Call, together we will identify if this is an appropriate fit. So before you say "yes," you will have a sample of what the coaching experience will be like. Until then, feel free to click on the About page to learn more about us and how we approach coaching.

How do I get started in the coaching process?
If you are interested in beginning the coaching process, the first step is to complete the Get Acquainted Strategy Call survey. Once you complete the survey, we will schedule a Get Acquainted Strategy Call if we believe we can be of service to you. During the Get Acquainted Stragegy Call, we can further explore the details of the coaching relationship and also give you an opportunity to experience coaching.

What can you expect from me as your coach?
1. Be a partner in bringing out the best, the deepest, and the truest in you.
2. Provide safety, encouragement, and support; create an environment in which you can relax and explore.
3. Respect the confidentiality of the agreements we make.
4. Expand your view of what is possible and promote discovery of new insights.
5. Be truthful and direct with my observations and feedback.
6. Listen carefully and completely (without judgment) to what you say and ask questions that increase awareness.
7. Be an on-going resource, sounding board, and support as you move toward accomplishing your intentions.

What if I sign up for this and decide it is not right for me? Do you have a money back guarantee?
Yes, we call it our "participate and get your money back" guarantee. If within the first three months of our relationship you show up to the calls and participate fully in the coaching process but find you are receiving no benefit, you can simply let us know this is not working for you and we will completely refund your money. To honor the coaching agreement and the coaching process, if you sign up and do not show up for your coaching sessions, do not do the follow up work, or are not committed to the process, then your investment will not be refunded.
