Is Coaching the Right Solution?

Coaching stands for creating a unique relationship between coach and coachee. The coachee gets a safe space to explore areas to growth. He/she will be able to raise awareness and make sound decisions. Hence, coaching is a great solution if you want to support someone’s development.
Still, there are a few requirements for coaching to work:

  • Coachee is willing and open to coaching
  • The company is supportive of the time and money invested
  • The sessions remain confidential
How many coaching sessions are needed?

As many as needed. Typically, a coaching relationship will take 8-12 sessions. Still, many people have ongoing coaching support for their benefit. Finally, you can focus on a single project for 1-3 sessions.
