After communicating by phone or email a no obligation virtual or phone Meet & Greet is scheduled. This meeting takes about 30 minutes. For youth coaching, the Meet & Greet should include the youth that is to be coached. If he or she is not available, a separate meeting will need to be scheduled to meet privately online to ensure the potential client understands coaching and is willing to go through the coaching process.
To schedule a Meet & Greet call 571-306-2932 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once you have decided to hire Winding Road Coaching, forms will be sent via email. These forms must be returned at least 2 days before the Discovery session is scheduled. During the Discovery session, the coach will better get to know the client and initial goals will be established. This meeting takes 1 hour and is billable.
Coaching plans include sessions, check-ins and Action Plans. Typical plans include one coaching session per week. Fees also include a check in 4 days after the session to see how things are progressing. Clients can check-in with questions or problems at any unscheduled time. Lastly, after each coaching session, the client & for youth coaching, their parent or sponsor, will receive an Action Plan to guide them for the next week. Other support materials may also be sent during coaching, such as sample calendars, app recommendations, and academic websites that might be useful. In order for coaching to be successful, 3 months of coaching is recommended though not mandatory.
The Discovery Session takes 1 hour and the fee is $100.00, which includes the review of paperwork & client set up. This is a one time fee. Because everyone is different, coaching is customized to the needs of the client. Fees for coaching are based on the modality (in-person vs. phone/virtual) selected. In-person coaching is currently $100 for a 45 minute weekly session and 1 check-in. Phone/Virtual coaching is currently $75 for a 45 minute session and $50 for a 30 minute session. Generally I like to start off with a 45 minute session, then move into the 30 minute session once the client is comfortable in the coaching setting. Past experience has proven that 30 minutes is generally enough time to identify actions for the week once the coach and client have had a few sessions to set the pace and expectations. This generally takes no more than 1 month and sometimes is sooner. Check-ins and follow up forms are all included in the session fees.
Coaching fees are due at the end of the month by credit card for the next month of coaching and check-ins. Changes or Cancellations made at least 6 hours before the session are credited (excluding emergencies).
