Coaching has become increasingly popular in various fields, offering individuals the opportunity to gain clarity, set goals, and achieve personal and professional growth. However, if you’re new to coaching, you may be wondering what to expect from a coaching session. In this blog post, we will delve into the process of a coaching session, highlighting the key steps and providing insights into the coach-client dynamic. Whether you’re considering hiring a coach or simply curious about the coaching experience, read on to discover what awaits you in a coaching session.

1. Discovery Call: The initial step in the coaching process is a discovery call, where the coach and potential client connect to assess compatibility and determine if the coach can effectively meet the client’s needs. This informal interview allows both parties to gauge chemistry and establish a comfortable working relationship.

2. Onboarding: Once the client decides to move forward, the onboarding process begins. This typically involves scheduling coaching sessions, making payments, and completing a comprehensive questionnaire. The questionnaire helps the coach gain a deeper understanding of the client’s background, challenges, and goals, ensuring a more productive coaching session.

3. The Coaching Session: The structure of a coaching session varies depending on whether it is a one-off session or part of a series. In the case of multiple sessions, the first session focuses on clarifying the client’s objectives for the coaching period. Tools like the Wheel of Life may be utilised to assess satisfaction and fulfilment in different areas of life. The session aims to establish a clear vision of the desired outcomes and identify actionable steps to achieve them.

4. Customised Approach: A skilled coach tailors their approach to each client’s unique needs and preferences. The coaching style may differ based on factors such as self-motivation, accountability, or specific challenges faced by the client. The coach’s role is to facilitate self-discovery and empower the client to find their own solutions, rather than providing direct advice based on personal experiences.

5. Silence and Reflection: Coaching sessions often incorporate moments of silence to allow clients to process their thoughts and delve deeper into their emotions. Verbalising and exploring various perspectives can lead to more profound insights and self-discovery. This reflective space is a valuable tool for personal growth.

6. Coaching Exercises: Coaching sessions may involve various exercises aimed at reframing perspectives, overcoming limiting beliefs, and developing practical skills. These exercises help clients gain a more optimistic outlook, challenge self-imposed limitations, and address common obstacles to success.

7. Voxer Coaching: Voxer coaching, a combination of voice and text communication, offers a more flexible and informal approach. It allows for regular check-ins, project-focused discussions, and real-time interaction, enhancing accountability and progress tracking.
