Successful coaching engagements usually last between 3 and 12 months depending on the goals and the ability to commit to actions in a timely manner. Some coaching agreements are made around very specific, time sensitive issues and may only require 2-4 sessions.
But usually goals are linked to developing your leadership skills, shifting behaviours in more favorable and effective ways, clarifying life and career goals, setting long term strategy or implementing team and cultural changes. These things take time and the science shows that for us to change a habit and have the new one stick it takes at least 3-6 months.
Once you achieve your goals, our work is done. If you want to resume again, for different reasons we can do that. You might also decide to shift to a maintenance mode, with sessions every one or two months. Ultimately I am here to serve you and I will trust your judgment about when you want or don’t want a coach.
