Am I ready for coaching?
Here are a few questions to ask yourself if you’re considering coaching. If you answer “No” to any of these, be sure to discuss this with a prospective coach before investing your time and money.
- Am I motivated to make changes, personally and/or professionally?
- Am I willing to be open and honest with my coach, knowing that this is a confidential relationship?
- Am I willing to take risks by trying new ways of thinking and behaving?
- Am I willing to take responsibility for my growth by coming prepared to each session and asking for what I need from my coach?
- Do I feel excited and/or nervous about starting coaching because I’m anticipating change from the status quo?
- Do I understand that my coach is my partner and collaborator and, while he may provide suggestions and resources, it is not his job to tell me what to do?
- Does my organization value and support coaching and understand the confidential nature of the relationship?
- Am I willing to create the time in my schedule for the coaching sessions and “show up” to each session – by being on time and being ready to engage in conversation about my development?
- Do I believe in mutual respect for our time – giving my coach as much advanced notice as possible if I need to reschedule an appointment and expecting the same from him?
- Am I okay with having fun and laughing, recognizing that this process can be difficult at times but it can also be quite fun.
