The below outlines the agreement between JKChangeWork & The Client as part of coaching together:
Coaching is proven to work when there are two factors present:
1) You, as the client, are open & willing to grow.
2) There is a gap between where you are now and where you want to be.
That is all that is necessary for the Coach and the Client to make changes, create a new opportunities, create new career opportunities commit to a plan of action to reach a goal.
Coaching with JKChangeWork
By signing up for a session (s) with JKChangeWork you are agreeing to take part in therapeutic coaching to explore & achieve your personal/professional goals.
Sessions use a range of coaching techniques which will flow in alignment to the issues/needs that you bring to each session. We will collaborate and review this approach as we work together; to make sure the spaces works for you. The coaching process is very much a fluid one, the coaching approach I offer is collaboration between both parties with myself as the guide/facilitator. Sessions remain flexible to deal with the issues/goals you bring on the day and the ever changing nature of life. That said, as your coach I will ensure that we remain committed and accountable to focusing on and achieving an end goal/outcome.
Coaching is a space for personal development, giving you resources and resolving issues. It is not just a space to talk about problems. At JKChangeWork you will experience a direct and proactive approach, helping you reach the change you desire. Therapeutic Coaching works best for people ready and willing to commit to change.
