Why Hire A Coach?
Harvard reports that one of the best reasons to hire a coach is to support “high-performing executives to acquire new insights, skills and capabilities quickly that improve their on-the-job-effectiveness.”
When you hire a coach from ChoiceCenter, your coach’s entire commitment is to having you win – whether that’s in your business, relationships, work/life balance, health, or any other area you choose.
By hiring a coach, you’re hiring a partner – someone who’s an expert, who can see and hear things you may be blind to, and who can provide feedback others are unwilling to share with you. ChoiceCenter coaches are trained to support you to maximize your own leadership skills and inspire others. Your coach will work with you to evaluate the choices you are making, and determine the most direct path to achieving your goals.
What To Look For In A Professional Coach
Harvard reports the two most important things to look for when hiring a coach are experience, and a clear coaching methodology.
ChoiceCenter coaches are trained in a proven methodology we call the Coaching Triangle.
Working with your coach, you will learn how to clear off the results on your declared goals, maximize your learning around your successes and missed marks, and re-declare for even bigger breakthroughs and achievements moving forward. What’s more, the Coaching Triangle is a tool you can teach your team to use as it applies in any situation where goals are declared.
Beyond certification and methodology, at ChoiceCenter, we have our own distinct philosophy about coaching. People who hire coaches are people who live in constant pursuit of excellence, therefore your coach should be on a parallel pursuit. We believe you should only hire a coach who is being coached themselves, who has access to peers and mentors who challenge them to consistently elevate their coaching skills.
ChoiceCenter employs a circle of Master Coaches – professional coach trainers who have a minimum of 10,000 hours of experience coaching as their profession. They coach each other, intern coaches, and the Center’s personal and business certified coaches on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis.
How Long Will I Work With A Coach?
Coaching should always have an end result with a timeline for achievement. You and your coach will work to determine the scope of what you want to achieve, and a timeframe for accomplishment. 45% of coaching relationships last 7 to 12 months, with 27% averaging 3 to 6 months. A minimum coaching contract with ChoiceCenter begins at 3 months.
