Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if coaching is for me?

If you are wanting to become more fulfilled in what you do, committed to opening yourself up to personal learning, and willing to engage fully and honestly in the process, you are a great candidate for coaching. I offer a free Exploration Session specifically for this reason - so that you can better understand what coaching can offer you and to determine if its a good fit for you.

How is coaching done?

I coach clients based all over the world (recent clients have been from Australia, Singapore, Italy and the US!). My coaching is done by FaceTime, Skype or phone. For a view of how my sessions work, click here.

How much does it cost?

Cost depends on the package your decide on. I offer 4, 8 and 12 session packages starting at $140/session, depending on the number of sessions chosen. My minimum package is 4 sessions, given that coaching is a process and sufficient time must be committed to gain optimal benefit. For specific Career Success, Career Transition and New Leader packages, go to my Coaching Packages page.

Will my company pay for coaching?

This depends on the company. As most companies now see the value of providing coaching, it is a good idea to talk to your manager, HR or Training to see if this is possible.

Do you offer a free consultation?

Yes, I offer a free 1-Hour Exploration Session. This is an opportunity for you to explore coaching and its fit for you and to ask any questions you may have. It also give us an opportunity to get to know each other.

How long does coaching take?

This varies depending on the client and challenges being worked on. 4 sessions is a starting point. Even after the initial purpose for coaching has been achieved, some clients choose to retain a coach for a monthly check in so that they have ongoing support. It really is up to you and what you need to fulfill your goals and vision.

What if I don't require all of my purchased sessions?

Any unused session costs will be fully reimbursed.

What types of career situations can you help with?

I coach across the career spectrum from career entry to mid-career to retirement. Please see my Career Success, Career Transition and Leadership pages for more information.

Why do you focus only on Career and Leadership Coaching?

Specializing in these two key areas ensures I am able to provide the best service and support possible to my clients. Also, with almost 30 years of career experience and learning -17 of which in leadership - I bring to my coaching a wide-ranging perspective. This helps me to better relate to my client and guide him/her to the success being sought.

What are your coaching ethics?

As a member in good standing of the International Coach Federation (ICF), I fully adhere to this organization's Code of Ethics.

Do you do life coaching?

My areas of specialization are Career Success/Transition and Leadership. However, my approach is holistic in nature and respects the fact that we are all more than just the work we do. In this regard, all of my coaching is "life" coaching to some degree.

Are there people you won't coach?

Yes. Anyone who is not wanting to be coached or is not fully committed to the process will derive limited benefit. One of the main purposes of my Discovery Session is to explore this with a potential client. If I feel either before engaging in coaching with a client or during the process that I cannot be of help, I will clearly indicate this.
