A great way to know if a Coach is for you, is to have a “Chemistry session”.
This is a great way for you and your potential Coach to meet and have a
taste of the potential connection you might have and how coaching can
help you achieve your goals.
What you can expect?
In general terms, at the end of a Chemistry session, this is what you can expect:
For the client:
A sense of being listened to, connected with, respected and understood
A chance to test out how the coach might deal with particular scenarios
A chance to get a feel for the coach’s style and method
A chance to ask questions about the coach’s specific experience
For the Coach:
A chance to understand the broad areas the client may want to work on
A chance to peek into how the client envisions the coaching engagement to look like
A chance to describe how they will work – their style
A chance to listen out for any danger signals – signs that the client might be coming into coaching for the wrong
