What you can expect from coaching
All who are involved in coaching can expect complete confidentiality as well as openness and honesty from their coach. Coaches offer coachees a genuine curiosity around their goals and how to achieve them, while providing support, guidance and encouragement when working towards them. Coaches expect coachees to remain committed, to plan and prepare and to work on any agreed actions.
It is important to prepare for coaching – and one useful way to do this is to consider what is important for your coach to know about you. This might include information around your current responsibilities, aspirations, experiences and background. You might also want to think about what you want from your coaching session, too.
You’ll also want to have a think about how you’ll work with your coach – considering what you want to get from the relationship, what your needs are, how your coach can most effectively support you and what your current goals look like.
