The Coaching process

Coaching is a process of looking at where you are in life, where you would like to be, and building skills to close the gaps. All coaching sessions are personalized to focus on your needs, requests and desires. The process described below is a general outline of the sessions. As a professional coach, Karisa is committed to client privacy and confidentiality.

Coaching can be the most empowering relationship in your life. Why? Your coach may be the only person in your life that does not have an agenda. Coaching is about getting more of what you want out of life.

A Foundation Session has 4 parts:

  • Clarifying what you want
  • Noticing challenges
  • Defining a structure and process

Prior to your foundation session, Karisa will provide a worksheet to help guide your conversation and explore the areas most important to you. You will also start to create a coaching alliance by defining how we work together, what accountability is and how it will work for you. This session clarifies areas in which you would like coaching and provides agreement on logistics. During the foundation session Karisa will introduce tools and techniques based on your specific needs and she will introduce coaching terms to help foster effective communication. Out of the foundation session you will get a clearer understanding of where your focus is, the skills that you want to work on, your commitment to creating change in your life and the first set of action items. Your success in coaching will be determined by your commitment to change. Karisa will be your advocate and guide in this process.

This session is typically 2 hours and can be done in-person or via phone. The foundation worksheet is provided to help guide our session and will require some prep work before we get started.

Weekly Sessions

Following the Foundation session, coaching typically proceeds with weekly 45 minute sessions. These sessions will:

  • Clarify your vision, purpose and dreams
  • Set goals to focus your energy
  • Provide tools and techniques
  • Break your goals into actionable steps
  • Set up accountability to ensure you complete these steps
  • Celebrate your successes

The agenda of each session will be up to you and we will plan how we use the time to maximize the value from your coaching time. By the end of the conversation you will have action items to follow up on before the next meeting or inquiries to reflect on to deepen your learning.

Real change takes time. Coaching with Karisa requires a three month initial commitment. While a lot can be accomplish during a single session, you have to allow yourself time to build new habits and see changes in your life. Most coaching relationships go beyond the initial commitment on a month-to-month basis. Change requires a commitment from you to yourself. The coaching relationship will enable you to define this change and foster the personal action required to achieve it.
