PeopleEdge has a variety of coaching programs which vary in duration from 3 months to twelve months, depending upon the number and complexity of goals. With regular “check in points” along the way, a PeopleEdge Coaching program will assist you in holding true to yourself by providing an “accountability buddy” as well as unblocking you from the things that are holding you back from achieving your goals and “Being the best that you can be”.
PeopleEdge coaches are tertiary qualified to a Master’s degree level in Coaching Psychology from the University of Sydney, as well as accredited in Executive and Organisational Coaching from the Institute of Executive Coaching & Leadership, making them the strongest qualified coaches possible. Thus they have access to numerous skills and techniques in their “Coaching Toolbox” – to assist you in reaching your goals in a reasonable timeframe.
How does it work?
You’ll first have a consultation with your coach to determine “fit”. During that time your coach will question you about what you’re wanting to achieve, and your motivations, to ascertain both whether there’s a coaching “fit” and to help you get clear on your goals. At that stage, if there is a “fit”, your coach will discuss with you the most appropriate coaching program for your needs and the investment required. A discussion will also take place around time commitment and the actual work required.
The coach will then provide you with a “Coaching Agreement” outlining obligations on both sides, and once signed, sessions will be agreed and diarised. Sessions are generally between an hour and 90 minutes and will start off weekly for the first month before stretching out to two per month. Your coaching program will consist of:
- Face to face, phone or Skype Sessions (whichever works best for the client)
- Reasonable contact time with your coach between sessions
- Resources, templates and articles to help you understand yourself, make the necessary changes to achieve your goals
- Assessments such as DiSC, Hogan and other tools and techniques can be included as part of developing a stronger understanding of self (often necessary when trying to make change).
