How Does Coaching Work?

A coach is professionally trained to ask questions and help you see yourself more clearly, to give you feedback, to help you leverage your natural abilities and strengths, and to manage your challenges. A key to the coaching partnership is the synergy created. More is accomplished by the team than you would alone. Structure is provided by the coach. As coach, I support you and hold you accountable, so you think bigger, take more action, and hang in there until you reach your desired outcome. 

What's the Coaching Process?

  • Coaching is delivered in regular sessions, usually bi-weekly, by telephone and/or in person.

  • We identify your coaching goals and develop a plan that can include one or more assessments that help you "know thyself" better.

  • If desired, a 360-degree feedback instrument can be used to learn how your co-workers, boss, and direct reports see your behavior, communication style, strengths, and opportunities as a leader.

  • You bring an agenda to each session--what YOU want to accomplish. I help you focus on the priorities and most relevant issues, solve problems, make decisions, create and leverage opportunities, minimize risk, and CELEBRATE success.

  • You leave each session with actions to keep you moving along between sessions.

Diane was very flexible and fun to work with. She worked with me on my business startup and was a mentor to me. Since our first call, I have felt very comfortable working with Diane. She always had great insight into the broad topics which we chose to work on in each session. The assessments we worked through together gave me a picture of myself that I can use to make better informed choices about how I choose to work and interact with others. Also they showed me my strengths and how to make the best use of them. Diane kept me accountable, but in a way that it always remained my agenda.
