How to choose a coach?
As a therapist, I have 20 years of experience where friends, family and colleagues approach me with a wide range of issues requiring professional intervention. When considering providing an outside referral in those circumstances my priorities are as follows:
- Provider type (prescriber, group, couples)
- Subject matter expertise
- My level of trust in the service provider
Think about coaching similarly. Subject matter expertise is a coach that understands the process, has professional and ethical boundaries around coaching services and has the ability to be effective with the client. As for the payer considerations executive coaching rates range from $150-$3,000 an hour. Make sure you budget for coaching over the long term 3-12 months, 1-2 times per month. Chemistry between the coach and coachee can be ascertained at the first meeting. My final trust consideration is to get a referral from someone you know and trust. An effective coach would spend time assessing the fit by obtaining information from you regarding your experience, needs, preferences and capabilities.
