Maximising your Coaching Sessions
About your coaching sessions
Within the Leading With Resilience programme you have an allocation of nine hours of one-to-one personal planning sessions.
How do I book my sessions?
Whilst we appreciate that diary commitments can fluctuate, we require a minimum of 48 hours’ notice if sessions need to be cancelled/rescheduled; otherwise we regret that hour of planning will, unfortunately, be forfeited.
Bringing about positive change
Neuroscience tells us that it takes approximately 21 days for new neural connections to form. So in order for new actions and behaviours to become “habitual” we need to consciously do them for at least three weeks. Your coach will therefore follow up with you on agreed actions and changes from one session to the next to see how positive new habits are helping.
Be prepared for your sessions
You may like to source a separate notebook/record of your one-to-one sessions so that you can keep track of thoughts, ideas and actions from one session to the next. Please find below some suggestions of things you can do prior to each coaching session plus a reminder of the journey timelines.
During the first planning session you will explore your Insights Discovery profile in depth with Professional Certified Coach, Sarah Reynolds. This session will give you the opportunity to begin thinking about personal resilience and what it means for you.
Before your next personal planning session, think about how you can apply some of the resilience strategies explored in the workshop and set yourself some goals/actions:
- What will you do differently in order to build your resilience?
- How can you help those around you to become more resilient?
- What are your stress-triggers?
Before your next personal planning session, think about your stress triggers and how you respond to stress (it may be helpful to think about this in terms of your Insights colour energy preferences).
- How do others see you under stress?
- How does your stress impact others?
- What actions you can take to reduce stress?
- What to you need to stop doing or do differently?
Think about what Leading from the Front means for you:
- What are your goals and objectives as a leader?
- What do you need to do to get there?
- What do you need to do differently?
- What do you need to stop doing/thinking/telling yourself?
