Questions & Answers
This is what you can expect from my coaching:
That depends on how much trust there is in the relationship between you and me. I am responsible for building a basis of trust. Nevertheless, at a certain point you have to grant me a lead in trust. Our collaboration depends a lot on how much you are willing to open up to me and how much you are willing to expose your "blindspots" and be honest with yourself.
If you are willing to do so, your success will be in receiving professional guidance and support on your path to self-reflection. You will get a clearer picture of yourself, know your challenges and you will be able to rely on your strengths more than ever before.
Your goals will be clearly defined and therefore easier to achieve. Your challenges won't seem unsolvable and you will feel an active "urge" to tackle them with courage, motivation and optimism. If you wish, we can work together to develop your very personal purpose. That is a clear statement that describes you, your goals in life (professional/personal) and shows you again and again why your skills enable you to live and accomplish this purpose.
My coaching sessions last about 1.5 - 2 hours. Between the sessions there is also a lot happening, as the initiated thought processes continue to mature. You will receive tasks for the time between the coachings and I will provide you with impulse nuggets.
A first meeting by phone or web conference for clarification of the matter and getting to know each other is always free of charge and takes about 30 minutes.
Only then do both you and I decide whether we really want to work together. The chemistry between us should fit. This is very important to me in order to have a trusting working relationship.
I work with people, their emotions, feelings and perceived realities. This is exactly the reason why I do not offer off-the-shelf coaching. Building block approaches are not compatible with the self-conception of my work, each coaching is individual and different.
Yes, from my experience, the same (psychological) depth and approach is possible online. This is part of my work and I put a lot of thought into how I offset the physical absence of my person in the digital space.
You can feel the intensity of the coaching via camera angle, voice pitch, eye contact, body language, sound quality. Due to that, important thought processes take place online just like they do offline.
Online coaching can even give you the advantage of opening up further because you find yourself in a well-known and familiar space. What is important is a "protected" room with a lot of trust. Creating this is my responsibility as a coach.
Even though I sometimes use methods in coaching that are also used in psychotherapy, the two fields are clearly to be distinguished in their objectives. I coach people with the goal of performance and self-development. Therapeutic goals are not part of my coaching.
