Business Coaching and Mentoring with Silent Partners

The Initial "Try Before You Buy" Session

The first introductory session is always free and we prefer all initial sessions to be face to face. Obviously there will be a "getting to know you and your business" part, a discussion about the areas of interest and a taster of the questioning process. We guarantee that you will have an outcome of ideas and maybe some solutions. It will then be up to you if you want to book a program of sessions and take it further.

The Program of Sessions

The number and frequency of sessions varies according to circumstances. For individual coaching/mentoring the sessions last between one to two hours. Larger team sessions last from half a day to two days. The sessions can be weekly, fortnightly or monthly.

Ad Hoc Sessions

If a program of coaching/mentoring is not required, and a relationship has already been developed with the coach/mentor, Ad Hoc sessions can take place. These would cover specific issues that the client wishes to tackle with some urgency or a regular progress review program.

How They are Delivered

Sessions can come in many different ways.
Either face to face, on the phone, by email or a mixture of all these. But whatever you choose, some basic rules apply.

Prior to or at each session, the client and coach/mentor decide upon the agenda, comprising:

  • Review of goals from the previous session and what was learnt from the action taken
  • Topics to be covered at this meeting
  • New goals, dates and actions are agreed upon at the end of each session

Team Coaching

The process is similar to that of the individual but with a few differences:

  • Team coaching takes longer
  • The coach needs to have some background on all the members of the team and their roles in the workplace.
  • Ground rules will be discussed and agreed at the start
  • Goals or objectives for the team must also be agreed at the start
  • The coach does not take minutes!
