Coaching is an exploratory process that allows you to gain capacity and develop professionally. Coaching is a unique relationship because it provides a sounding board, personal mentor, and professional advisor in one. 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 an agenda, or topic, that you'd like to work on. For some, that's extremely specific--to get a promotion, for example. For others, it's more broad, such as to develop more confidence as a leader, or to plan the next five years in their career. Each coaching session is one hour in length and takes place over Zoom. Most clients elect to meet twice a month, though weekly may be more appropriate given the topic. 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. Most contracts are six months to a year in length, but clients usually experience insights and make substantial progress within a couple of sessions. Those who contract with Dr. Morgan individually sign a contract for a specific amount of time (depending on the work needed), and are billed monthly. Clients whose coaching is underwritten by their companies are invoiced upfront for the full amount.
