No doubt about it, entering into a coaching program is a big investment of time and money. The decision to hire a coach shouldn’t be taken lightly. Yet, postponing coaching—or not doing it at all—could be a huge mistake. It could cost you more time and money than if you had hired a coach when you first thought about doing it. Before starting coaching, you should have a reasonable idea that coaching will help.
Coaching Successes and Failures
We have coached hundreds of clients at LaMountain & Associates, and we can share many success stories. We hope you have reviewed some of these stories and our clients’ testimonials. Many of our clients describe coaching as the best single investment of time and money they ever made! With coaching support, they graduated from college with a high GPA, got a promotion at work, found the love of their life, or mended a difficult relationship with a co-worker.
We’ve also had a few coaching failures. We try to screen coaching clients for “coaching readiness” before accepting them, and we don’t accept clients whom we feel are not ready. However, sometimes we don’t know—and the client doesn’t know—if coaching will help the client achieve their goals until we are a few weeks or even a few months into coaching. What we DO know from the time we first interview with a client—AND throughout the coaching relationship—is that there are at least ten things that make coaching work!
