Who is coaching for?
Aware with Words Coaching is for individuals or teams who are dissatisfied with their relationships or work environment, or who want greater clarity about what's next for them.
People who access our coaching are typically leaders in a range of private, public or non government organisations, or people who see themselves as future leaders. Our coaching is also accessed by private individuals.
Goals clients bring to coaching
Clients come to coaching with a wide range of goals. Some want to nurture more productive work relationships or create teams and workplaces where people thrive. Others want to address challenging feedback from work colleagues or gain greater clarity about the next chapter of their lives. Some want to embrace their identity and find their voice, while others want to build more fulfilling relationships with their partner or children.
Some of our clients have changed work and personal relationships from "surviving" to "flourishing". Others have embraced their dreams of writing a book, designing a training program or starting a business. Some have befriended long held fears and discovered ways out of "paralysis" and procrastination.
Ultimately coaching outcomes are in your hands, as you are the person who takes the discoveries and changes into your life. However, we design with you a coaching relationship that sets you up for success (as you define it for you). We richly support you be in the driver's seat of your life.
What you can expect during coaching
You can expect a partnership with your coach that takes into account your goals, unique needs, concerns and preferred ways of learning.
You can expect robust but playful questions and activities that support you to discover what's important to you, what's keeping you stuck, and what's possible for you - beyond what you currently imagine. There will be times of stillness and times of stretch and challenge.
Your coach will support you to take action by designing with you a process to keep you accountable to you!
Coaching sessions: Frequency and length
Initial sessions are weekly then moving to fortnightly or even monthly, depending on your needs. Coaching sessions are typically one hour but can also be half an hour.
What coaching is not
Coaching is not therapy. Our focus is less on healing the past (requiring the expertise and support of qualified counsellors and psychologists) and more on what’s occurring in the present and creating a way forward. Where we believe you would benefit more from work with a counsellor or psychologist, we will let you know that and support you to find the professional you need.
Aware with Words provides coaching for both organisations and individuals.
