I have never worked with a coach before. How it is different from attending a normal Training course ?

From a broader perspective, a trainer has a set agenda or curriculum about any topic or skill(s) which the trainer imparts to the trainees (mostly in a group or in batches). A coach works in partnership with you to understand your specific requirements in the field of your choice and set goals with a mutual agreement to be achieved by you in a specific time frame. A coach not only monitors but also ensures your accountability in making you drive for your goals by keeping you focussed and motivated.

Do I need to visit the coach at his or her place ?

It depends upon your location and the coach’s location, also on the mode of coaching used by the coach. You can find the mode on the coach’s profile page. Mostly, to save time and commute, people prefer coaching sessions over telephone or video calls (Zoom, Skype, and other applications). Also, it helps in overcoming geographical barriers. But it will depend upon your coach and you to mutually decide over the medium to be used (including in-person) for the coaching.

Do I have to pay to the coach for initial contact or consultation ?

No, usually a coach will not charge you for the initial call or meeting to discuss the modalities of coaching unless specifically mentioned by the coach.

How long is the duration of a coaching contract ?

It depends upon your requirement. Normally, a coach will take you in confidence to decide the time and space for the concluding the coaching assignment. As observed, a coach will have various programs including his or her signature program/modules which normally may range from four to eight or twelve sessions (or more) of an hour each. This will spread over weeks or months. Again there is no fixed convention that is followed. It will all depend on your coach how he or she decides the best suited time frame that will ensure the best of the results for you. All this would be mutually decided by you and your coach before your coaching formally starts.

Can I drop in-between a coaching contract ?

Yes, you can(please also refer to the coaching contract form, if any, that you sign before starting of your coaching sessions) but our advice would be to follow the complete coaching schedule as decided initially by you and your coach unless and until you have some substantial reasons to dis-continue

Are coaches expensive ?

Not really! Normally we hear coaches assigned to CEOs and top business leaders. From Bill Gates to Sir Richard Branson to Tim Cook and many more, all had their coach. But as a matter of fact, coaches are for everyone including you and me! Actually, it is good to have a coach at all stages of your life or career- whether you are struggling, stable, or successful. Even when you think you are successful, you will need a coach to ensure that your success is maintained and you continue to develop and grow. A Coach working on his/her passion to help people has to spend a lot of time, energy, and money to keep updating their skills so as to provide the best of coaching to their clients. So, there is a cost attached to it. Investing in yourself would be the best investment that you will make to get the best returns in your life!

How do I know if my coaching engagement was successful ?

On concluding your coaching schedule, you and your coach will review the goals that were set at the beginning of the coaching session. The status of the goals would be a fair measurement to decide on the success of your coaching assignment. But even more than that, how do you feel about yourself having gone through this journey with your coach in terms of your own personal growth and development will be another yardstick of measurement.

Is Coaching under any kind of regulation ?

No, it is not under any regulation as of now.

One of the objectives of Setmycoach.com is to help Coaches with more business (clients).

Also, we have created this platform with a universal appeal so as to attract Coaches/Clients across the geographical boundaries.
