How do I engage a coach?

If you think that you would like to be coached, the first thing to do is find a coach. This is fairly easy, as an internet search will provide a list of coaches and various directories which contain their contact details. Many coaches tend to gain work from the personal recommendation of a former client, so friends or colleagues are often a good source and may provide more information than you can gain by reading a directory.

During your first contact, the coach will explain the coaching process and what is involved. At this point a contract may be discussed. Finally, a location and time for the first meeting will be arranged. This is usually a discrete, yet public space, such as a quiet corner in a coffee shop or a hotel reception area.
