Personal Coaching Session Option
As part of your training, you have the possibility to be coached with YOUR personal/career goals by me, to experience the power of coaching technique first-hand and relate it to your own work. We will record the session so that you can be all in your client mind while being coached, and all in your coach mind when analyzing the recording after the session. As you will experience the power of the coaching conversation with your own body, and will see the value of it unfold in your own career, I consider this one of the most efficient supplemental teaching techniques.
With adding coaching skills to your professional expertise, you can be sure to support your clients in creating a career plan that actually works - for them.ING C
