Your initial meeting

The relationship between a coach and a client is very important.

It should be built on a high level of trust, and agreement on outcome required. To help in the establishing of this, we recommend an initial conversation that can explore topics such as

  • Introductions and backgrounds
  • What you understand about coaching
  • Clarification of role of coach through your eyes
  • In what way you might benefit from coaching
  • What specific issues or problems you wish to address
  • What the feeling is about a coaching relationship
  • Logistics and expectations of coaching sessions

In addition to this discussion, it is important to discuss the context for the coaching.

Perhaps you could now write a few paragraphs or draw something that reflects your thoughts on these questions.
