Eureka! typically works face to face with clients. Increasingly, via Skype, although coaching via the telephone, or email if circumstances prevent an in-person meeting if there is a need for an urgent coaching session.
Eureka! provides an individualized and customized service. Because the coaching and learning that occur are uniquely tailored to the individual, the process will differ for each person. The coach and client work together to design a unique coaching assignment that will create the desired positive outcomes.
The foundation to creating the best coaching relationship includes:
Listening, talking, feedback, discussions, perspective, validation, planning, teaching, communication, solutions, structure, exercises, strategies and resources.
The coaching process can be broken down into five steps. The exact determination of the dividing lines between the individual steps is less important than the approach that is taken to address the issues that arise during the process as a whole.
