The client must receive maximum value from the session, nevertheless the coach receives maximum charges.
If you want to facilitate the successful achievement of your client’s Desired Outcome, every one of the coaching sessions must be purposeful, results-driven and goal-oriented! If you want to charge top coaching fees, you better be in order to go the extra mile and turn your coaching session into a coaching experience.
There are many elements that formula a properly executed coaching session. Guidelines the 10 session criteria that I consider essential for creating a coaching experience!
Before I contact a client, I always allow myself quarter-hour to properly incomparable the session. Here is the time when I all of the following:
I review all my notes.
Every time I conduct a coaching session, I take detailed notes on everything that happens during the session. I am always amazed at what number of coaches rely on memory from one session to the other. If you don’t take notes, you are not much of a credible and professional coach! Winging always be for the in addition to!
I check my Coaching Timeline.
Every weight loss coaching Program that I get ready for a client conditional on a 3 – 6 month timeline. I use this timeline to hold both the client and myself the agent responsible for achieving measurable progress toward a Desired Outcome.
I read the “Prep Sheet”.
Prior to every session, my clients submit a Coaching Prep Sheet where they write a brief summary of the progress they made since the last session and where they want to pay some extra time during the next session.
I prepare a Session Agenda.

Creating Coaching Ejaculations.
A Coaching Climax is the ‘mental trigger’ that validates and authenticates a pivotal point in a coaching session.I deliberately chose the word ‘climax’ as a metaphor for the powerful impact found on on a coaching client.A skillful Coach can achieve multiple Coaching Climaxes for any client during a coaching session.
If your client does not experience at least one coaching climax for each 15 minutes of coaching, your coaching session did not measure up on the rigorous standards in the place of Coaching EXPERT!
A sure-fire way to keep your clients motivated and on course is to provide measurable accomplishments during and following each coaching session.Recognize the progress the client has made since the last session and point out any recent ‘milestones’ that he/she has got a chance to.A ‘Success Formula’ is created when a string of ‘milestones’ are recorded within the path to achieving a Desired End result.
Keeping focus through the Desired Outcome.
If you don’t keep focus on Desired Outcome, the client may start to wander in different directions. While surely do not for you to stifle any chance of your clients to achieve a Coaching Climax, you must guard against any random deviations from the session agenda. Ought to you don’t, the session will miss its objective and will be going to difficult to record in your notes in the context of the overall Desired Outcome.
