The International Coaching Federation as well as the College of Executive Coaching have done extensive research with scientists and educators in the behavioral sciences arena to develop a science-based, process focused, outcome driven system that results in change. Whether personal or professional, executive coaching can help identify patterns (both good and not so good ones), establish goals and implement an individualized action plan. The coaching environment is a safe place to develop new responses to old problems and to practice new behaviors with an objective, qualified third party. Not only will current goals become clear, but also along the way the executive coach will begin to gently press a client to pinpoint his or her highest potential, all within a confidential, structured environment. As a person works through this crystallizing process, time management kicks in. Waste and repetition are identified and thrown out, creating more efficient habits and routines.
The coaching experience begins by contacting Rosewood Coaching. All coaches are credentialed by the International Coaching Federation and adhere to a code of ethics, maintaining confidentiality, and providing clients with individualized, creative solutions.
An initial interview is scheduled via the telephone. Once assessments are conducted and reviewed, the process then begins. Usually a coaching experience includes a meeting once per week, generally over the phone, with unlimited follow up emails. Accountability is key to the success of the coaching-both for the coach and for the client. Homework is usually assigned and is useful for helping the client hone in on the goals of the experience. An executive coaching or personal coaching experience generally requires between 3-6 months, at a minimum, to demonstrate its effectiveness and return on investment. Remember change takes time.
