Session 2 Lesson Plan

Ultimate Coaching Experience

Before Your Coaching Session

  • Did you read your client's application or review notes from last time?
  • Did you review client's notes from other coaches so you can ask intelligent questions based on their experiences?
  • Are you using a good headset or telephone with a good connection?
  • Are you in a calm, centered place yourself?

Before Your Start, Remember...

  • Ask yourself, "Based on what I know NOW, how can I best serve this client today?"
  • Your job is to help your client have the best experience possible.
  • Forget about your agenda or your goals, focus on the client's needs.
  • Don't try to solve problems, instead try to let the client find their own solutions by asking good questions.
  • Always go back to what you know about this client, their unique situation and challenges (everyone is different).

Introduction:

  • Congratulations on your work and progress with the Ultimate Coaching Experience so far
  • Before we get started, do you have any questions, successes or challenges that you wanted to discuss during this session today?

Quick Check-In

To begin, I'll ask you some simple "check in" questions like we've done in the past. This will help me understand where you're at today.

  • QUESTION #1: On a 1 to 10 scale with 10 being the best, how are you feeling about your progress (if any) so far?
  • QUESTION #2: On that same 1-10 scale, how "in control" do you feel of your emotions right now? 1 is completely in control and a 10 would be crying, nervous, anxious or any of those strong emotions that sometimes feel like they control us.
  • QUESTION #3: If you can rate your stress for me with 1 being no stress and 5 being totally stressed out. What is your current level of stress?
  • QUESTION #4: How much support do you feel in this journey from your friends and family? 1 is no support, 10 is totally loved and supported.
  • QUESTION #5: This past week, how did you feel about your food choices? Tell me on a 1 to 10 scale, with 1 being terrible and 10 being perfect.
  • QUESTION #6: How many days this past week were you able to do something physical inside or outside, such as playing in the park, taking a walk, going to the gym or anything like that?
  • QUESTION #7: Ok one last question, how many times within the last week did you do your evening visualization?
