What is coaching and how can it help me?
Many believe coaching is getting advice. In reality, coaching is the opposite of advice. Advice is focused on the solution whereas coaching is focused on better understanding the problem. Meaningful coaching helps you explore your obstacle or opportunity fully, which in turn, makes the solution become clear. Coaching is a unique relationship because it provides a sounding board, personal mentor, and professional advisor in one. A strong coach will be a champion and a challenger who pushes you to organize your thoughts, understand your feelings, and explore your options. Clients often find it more beneficial to speak candidly with a coach, rather than with their bosses or those they supervise, about professional challenges and opportunities. But beyond having an objective outsider, coaching allows for deep and meaningful exploration that can help you overcome self-doubt, clarify your short- and long-term goals, define your leadership style, and develop a strong sense of the impact you'd like to make.
What does the coaching process look like?
Coaching begins with a topic you'd like to explore. Each coaching session is one hour in length and takes place over Zoom. Most clients elect to meet twice a month. During the session, Dr. Morgan uses Columbia University's structured exploratory process to guide the discussion, though you won't interpret it as anything but an engaging conversation. Dr. Morgan also offers laser coaching sessions if you just need one session to help organize your thoughts around a particular problem or opportunity that may be time sensitive.
