If I engage a coach, what can I expect?

Coaching can take many forms, depending on the needs of the individual. Some suppliers have a specific coaching programme, Jemstone Consultancy prefers to tailor its approach to the individual needs of each client. With Jemstone Consultancy, whatever your issues, you can expect:

an initial meeting free of charge to establish whether we are the right people for you, and to agree an initial time limited contract if you want to proceed

a written contract outlining work and costs

regular meetings to discuss your issues

purposeful conversations, with you and your concerns as the clear focus

skilled inquiry into your situation that helps you develop new ideas and approaches

the use of other tools, such as psychometrics, skill practice, reading materials, facilitated conversations with others, as appropriate to your needs

regular reviews of the effectiveness of the process and the appropriateness of continuing
