Facilitation Skills

9-12 months of coaching

Facilitation Skills

This type of coaching is reserved for people who are ready to go deep. You could also think about this as a mentorship. We’ll have the time to find focus, practice facilitation skills, and with heightened awareness we’ll be able to shape your behavioral patterns and increase influence.

Benefits of Long-Term Coaching:

    • We’ll create more context so we can have faster insights and bigger developments
    • You’ll have a steady coach to deconstruct experiences like: “I know I missed something but I’m not sure what” or “I acted on an intuitive guess and it was effective, but I’m not sure why”
    • You’ll have a shortened learning trajectory — able to get instant feedback and pull from 30 years of experience, finding answers quicker than ever before
    • Presentation and Workshop help: I’ll share how to teach facilitation skills, how to structure a presentation that includes the group, and give input on how to design and enhance collaborative exercises

Each month of coaching includes:

    • 2 – 3 coaching calls
      two 1.5 hour or three 1 hour calls
    • Email follow-ups
    • Short in-between calls as needed

More Coaching Details

What is most important to bring to a session?

To gain the most from coaching, it is helpful to bring a curiosity to want to learn more and more about yourself and how you influence others. It’s also helpful to have patience, and give yourself grace to realize that this is all a process that will take place over time. We’ll be looking into the long-view and developing a sustainable path along the way.

Coaching is especially effective if you are curious about learning more and more about who you are and how you influence. The energy for positive change is what will drive you towards the future.


How are the calls done?

We’ll make an agreement about when the call will happen, and who will call. We can arrange talk on the phone, via Skype, or via Facetime.


What is the time commitment?

We’ll have 2-3 calls per month (we’ll decide whether two 1.5 hour calls or three 1 hour calls works best).

In addition, if you want to get the absolute maximum from coaching, you may read recommended books, or practice what you’ve learned in between our calls. I don’t want to be intentionally vague about the time commitment, but really, the amount of time invested is up to you. The more you commit to learning more and more about yourself and developing skills, the more you will get out of coaching.


What if I picked 3-months and what to extend longer?

It is totally normal to start a short coaching plan and decide to extend it longer. Billing wise, if you sign up for 3 months of coaching and continue longer, months 4-8 will be charged at $2200. Similarly, if you continue 9+ months, these months will be billed at $2000.


What if I want to end coaching earlier than our original agreement?

If your priorities dramatically shift, then it’s likely the coaching plan will change too. We can always pause or stop the coaching session early with no extra fees. If you paid in full for the coaching session, we can pause the coaching and you can re-start later, or we can refund you for the remaining months.


How does billing work?

Most people prefer to pay the full cost up front versus paying monthly. For example if you signed up for 4 months of coaching the full cost is 4 months x $2,200 = $8,800. If you prefer a monthly payment plan that is totally fine.

Once we decide the length of coaching, you will be in one of the 3 pricing structures. For example, if we agreed on a 6-month coaching commitment, then each of those 6 months would be charged at the “4-8 month” rate of $2200 (or paid in full: $14,400).

Typically billing is done at the beginning of the month, but another day of the month can be accomodated.


What might a session look like?

For each coaching session I tend to talk for about 1/3 of the session. For most of the call I’ll be listening deeply to you, gaining a greater appreciation and understanding of the situation. Most likely I’ll be asking clarifying questions along the way. I may also offer a reframe, or share other opportunities or alternatives I am wondering about. At the end of the call we’ll ensure we heard to eachother, and we’ll focus on what we want to accomplish at our next meeting. We’ll also decide if there’s anything either of us would like to learn or practice before the next meeting.


Is there homework between meetings?

I do not assign specific “homework” between sessions. It is possible that there will be something either of us will want to learn or practice before our next meeting.


Can I share the calls with my team members?

If you’re working on a particular situation where it would be helpful to share the calls with other teammates, that can certainly be co-created in your plan. I have had coaching sessions where 2 out of 3 calls were with the dentist and 1 call was with another employee.

Executive coaching calls are specifically meant for helping growth and positive change and we can be creative about how that happens.
