Executive Coaching

Working Together

Mutual Understanding

Good rapport and mutual trust underpins good coaching relationships, so it is important to be clear about expectations and the commitment required from both sides at the start.  My approach is to follow a straightforward, transparent process:

Initial Call

I am more than happy to answer any questions that you have and to arrange an intial face to face meeting to discuss your requirements in more detail.

Getting to know you

Thirty minutes of your time to meet in person, to follow up our phone call and see how well we get on.  There is no obligation at this stage and either of us can decide not to continue if we do not wish to take the coaching relationship forward.  At this point, you can choose to spend some time to reflect or go ahead with contracting.


This can be a separate meeting or be part of the getting to know you session if you wish.  It is the first stage of the coaching process and will usually need an hour, during which we will establish our mutual commitment and responsibilities and cover confidentiality, frequency of meetings, support between sessions and relationship with any third parties such as sponsors, line managers and so on. 

Coaching Sessions

You can expect a series of focussed one to one sessions.  Typically, there will be six ninety minute sessions spread over six months although we can discuss frequency and timescale to match you needs at the contracting stage.  The coaching sessions can be a mixture of face to face meetings, Skype calls or phone calls.
