Coaching is similar to fitness training

Jan 4, 2024 | Private Coaching

The magic of coaching happens as much during the periods between coaching sessions as in the sessions themselves.

The rest periods between exercise sessions are as important as the sessions themselves. It is during these periods of rest that your body builds its fitness.

So, with coaching. The magic of coaching happens as much during the periods between coaching sessions as in the sessions themselves.

Coaching is a process of discovery, learning and transformation. The ideas and insights you gain during a session are only valuable if you act on them and put them into practice. Accountability helps to ensure this happens.

My Navigator exploration meeting includes three months of access to your Personal Accountability Page to give you accountable action after your main session. It works in several ways.

Ongoing quick coaching

You are bound to have questions as you put your ideas into practice, and you can discuss these with me by text or email after your coaching session.

Creation

During a coaching session, you and your coach will create ideas, insights, plans, clarity, and more. However, these “things” are often conceptual, a memory from your conversation. Over time, they will fade. The Accountability Page helps you make these intangible concepts tangible, visible, shareable, and re-visitable by writing them down in session notes for future reference. 

Actions

You can use your personal Accountability Page to create and track your to-do list of actions from your coaching session.

Metrics

Metrics are a way of measuring quantitative progress over time. For empty nesters, for instance, maintaining contact with your offspring is essential, and you might set a target and metric to measure the number of times each week you speak to your children.

Courses and assignments

Learning and assessing continue after a session, and I will prompt you to complete worksheets and courses between sessions.

Files

If you discussed an article during a session, you can add the article to your Personal Accountability Page so you can return to it in your own time.

Journaling

Journaling is a way of recording your reflections during and after a session, and the journalling facility on the Accountability Page makes this easy. You can share your thoughts with your coach or keep them to yourself.

Accountability reminders

You and your coach can set reminders for anything essential to accountability and success.

So coaching is not just about the one-to-one sessions with your coach. A sound coaching system will keep you motivated, informed, and accountable throughout your programme. Utilise the time between sessions to stay connected with your coach and take action to bring about your desired transformation.
