Frequently asked questions
Q: What is Strategic Empowerment Coaching?
Strategic Empowerment Coaching is a partnership between coach (me) and client (you) that is dialogue based and leverages the use of targeted questions and creative thinking approaches to facilitate change in order to support you in increasing your confidence and empowerment as you make progress towards your goals. During live coaching sessions and between session activities, you are able to unlock your strengths, break through roadblocks, and hone new skills in a safe and supportive environment. Coaching is about asking, never about telling because your path and goals are unique. As your coach, I will be there to ask you questions that are beyond your personal reach and support you as you sort through key information and find your way forward.
Q: What is the objective of a coaching engagement?
The objective of coaching is two part; clarify your goals so you know what you are going towards and clarify your needs, potential, strengths, blindspots, and capacity so you can get there. By better leaning into your strengths and uncovering what’s in your way, we can target the areas you are most interested in addressing so that you can confidently and effectively reach your personal and professional goals.
Q: What is a Hogan Leadership Assessment?
The Hogan is a powerful assessment that is designed to help you develop as a leader. It provides insights about your strengths (known and unknown), weaknesses (known and blindspots), behavior that could potentially undermine or inhibit your performance (aka derailers), and the values that make you who you are. By using this resource in coaching, together we can better understand how to better leverage your strengths and minimize your weaknesses so that you can thrive and avoid derailment. The Hogan is made up of 3 assessments (HPI, HDS, and MVPI). It takes approximately 30 min to complete a hogan assessment. To read more about each of the 3 reports, please download this quick read Hogan Assessment info graphic.
Q: Are sessions confidential?
What you say in our coaching sessions stays in our coaching sessions.
Your ability to trust your coach is paramount to the coaching process and thus, I take every precaution to safeguard your confidentiality. Any personal information you share is stored behind secured logins. As an ICF PCC Coach, I am ethically bound by a code of conduct ethics. Please feel free to check the ICF code of ethics out here.
Q: Im super busy what if I can’t meet bi-weekly?
Bi-weekly sessions are advised because they are found to have a greater return for the client. The goal of coaching is not to be in coaching forever, it is to be targeted on the goals you want to accomplish and help you get there quickly. While sessions are work, they help you get stronger and more empowered, often times identifying ways to address that feeling of “busy” and overwhelm.
Q: How long does the coaching process take?
Coaching typically takes 3-6 months depending on the goal. In our work together, we will set a clear vision for where you want to be 3-6 months, and the specific goals you want to be hitting. As we work together in bi-weekly sessions, we will design experiments to try out new skills, behaviors and habits to get you towards these goals. For some clients, once this initial goal is hit, they are set, for other clients the process becomes invaluable to them and as they identify new goals they want to achieve, they feel coaching is a powerful tool they want to keep leveraging.
Q: I have a therapist, can I work with a coach?
Absolutely! Coaching and therapy partner well together as longer as there is clarity in what you are working on in each space. It is important to be clear that coaching is NOT a substitute for therapy. One difference is coaches meet clients in the present moment and focus on the future. We clarify goals, identify obstacles, and create action plans. Coaches focus on how to reach a goal. Our process is oriented towards action and results. Therapists utilize a framework that is based on pathology and illness. Another difference is that therapists manage mental illnesses and diagnoses, coaches do not. Coaches are not medical or healthcare professionals. We don’t have the credentials or accreditation to provide mental healthcare. This is not an exhaustive list
