Have you ever thought about investing in a coaching session?
Here’s how to make the most out of your session… ⤵️
Firstly, it’s important to realise what an opportunity it is! Preparing for a coaching session allows you to make the most out of the investment you’ve made.
⚡️ Come Prepared to your Coaching Session
Before you attend the coaching session, make a list of your personal goals.
⚡️ What do you hope to learn?
⚡️ What are your major concerns?
Think about the topic for the session and reflect on times in the past when you’ve experienced challenges related to that topic.
For example, if the session will cover gaining new clients, remember a time when you had this difficulty before, what do you think went wrong? What did you learn from it? How would you handle things differently in the future?
Be prepared to share previous experiences with your coach so you can hear their thoughts on ways you could improve in the future.
⚡️ Be vocal about your goals
Many coaches will open their session by asking participants to share their goals for the event. This is a great ice breaker, but it also really helps a coach adjust the content to the needs, experiences, and expectations of attendees.
If you have a particular development area you want to address, express it openly early on in the process so the coach can devote adequate time to the topic. Also, don’t be afraid to ask for help. As the session progresses, if you need more time or advice on a particular topic, don’t hesitate to ask the coach for help! They’re there to ensure your success.
⚡️ Connect with the coach
When you finish the development program, you may still have questions for the coach, or want to share a success story. Be sure to exchange contact information with your coach so you can connect with them in the future!
If you had a positive experience in your development session, recommend it to others and it’ll mean a lot to your coach. Don’t forget to let them know too, they’ll appreciate it!
⚡️ Be open to new ideas
Inevitably, your coach will make some suggestions that are outside of your comfort zone. Before you shoot those ideas down, give them a try. You may be surprised by the results.
⚡️ Establish Leadership in your Coaching Session
Coaches deliver content and techniques that have been perfected over the years and are known to achieve positive results. Not every technique/suggestion will work for you, but you won’t know until you try.
Come to a coaching session prepared, engaged, and open to new ideas, you’ll be amazed at how much more valuable it is. You’re investing in yourself, now it’s time to match that investment with your focus and energy.
