Interactive coaching is different, this is considered as the second step in coaching and not meant to take the place of 1 2 1 coaching. 1 2 1 Coaching is the coach's high value service with which they are paid accordingly. This cost can sometimes become restrictive to many clients. This is the reason Interactive coaching was created. By working through the interactive coaching programs the client can work at their own pace and in their own time. While the coach can watch their progress and respond as and when required.
By working with the written word, Interactive Coaching becomes an intuitive method of coaching and one that will become the norm as people are looking for alternative, convenient and affordable methods of coaching. The coach uses the power of Interactive Coaching to empower the client to take control and become accountable of their own success. Some people feel the only and best way of coaching is 121 coaching, but this coaching method has it's limitations. Many people are concerned with the idea of talking to a stranger, opening up, feeling a sense of being judged and even embarrassed. Then of course you have the time issues of getting together with the coach. We all have busy lives so whenever an appointment is made it never seems to be the right time. With Interactive Coaching all these fears are set to one side, and although the client knows the coach is there and responding, the fact the client is writing down their thoughts, goals, fears, and dreams very quickly the client forgets the "stranger" and picks-up on their "feelings" giving much deeper responses, in a short period of time.
By working through a powerful Interactive program with your client, the coach very quickly identifies issues that are not obvious. The coach becomes intuitive, able to read between the lines of communication. Clients are always amazed at this, in most cases the clients avoid the real issues, but not with Interactive Coaching. The coach detects and acknowledges this, drawing the client back to the real issue and not letting them proceed until they too acknowledge this and a break through happens. This can only be achieved because of the time available to be able to reflect before a reply. Likewise the client has the time to respond giving both deeper communications and enlightening moments that can never be achieved on a 1:1 basis.
During the communications with Interactive Coaching, between the coach and client, a coaching rainbow is created. This rainbow gives the client an immediate history of the communication keeping the flow and tone of the conversation together. We quickly discovered that even the color can tell the coach so much about the client and what they were feeling when they were responding. Bringing a holistic element to the coaching.
With Interactive Coaching you are given a personalized coaching Hub, complete with The Fundamental Coaching program and the Self Coaching Programs. The Hub also includes the Life Map and GROW model to ensure your clients are keeping to their values, goals and stay focused. Working towards a work life balance the clients can at any time choose to share their work with you their coach, giving even greater and deeper coaching.
