ONLINE TRANSFORMATION COACH
How Do YOU Feel Having An Online Transformation Coach?
I have clients all over the world, from Cape Town (South Africa) to Johannesburg to United Kingdom. Meeting this way for coaching is increasing in popularity, with many people loving the fact they can meet with a super coaches no matter where in the world they are. I’ve found that, in general, people fall into three camps when it comes to the idea of meeting with a life coach online: Confronted, Relieved, or Cautiously Open.
Confronted About Online Transformation Coaching
You might find it daunting, the idea of doing something so personal, as life coaching online through Zoom, Skype or Facetime. Something about being physically present with a coach feels like an essential part of your experience.
For this group, the act of stepping out of life, driving to the appointment, and being in the coaching venue feels important and helpful. For these people doing life coaching online is not a plan. If this is you, you can meet with me relating to Transformation Coaching, Life Coaching or Executive Coaching.
Note that here are people, or couples, for whom online life coaching or relationship coaching is not appropriate. Read more on the pro and con’s of online coaching at Coaching Logic.
Relieved To Meet With An Online Transformation Coach
The second group of people, when offered the prospect of meeting for life coaching online, have an “Oh thank goodness!” kind of reaction, due to the convenience of it, being;
Liberty of time and Location
This is the key to online coaching. Clients can select their convenient time and place for the coaching. Online coaching is especially suitable for those clients who are frequently travel or work unconventional hours. Clients can take coaching from their home, office etc. without wasting their travelling time, petrol etc.
Coaches can provide multimedia formatted materials like CD/DVD, online presentation, animations and many more other formats.
Easy Access to a great deal of Coaches
This allows clients to access coaches contemporaneously anywhere in the world. Though having a different time zone, you can get passionate coaches who can accomplish your goals.
I personally like to be coached online as time investment being key and I can chat to any coach, mentor and mind leader worldwide. I have personally benefited from it enormously. (Click here to learn more about what Transformation Coaching can do for YOU.)
The Third Group: Cautiously Open To Online Transformation Coaching
I have found, through online coaching and mentoring, that most people actually fall into the third group: Cautiously open. These are the people who are ambivalent about online coaching. They often have not had much experience with using online video technology. Have anxiety about figuring out Skype or FaceTime, just because they never use it. They imagine that they’ll be “talking to a computer” and that their experience with coaching will not be meaningful as a result.
These are often people that I start working with in person at my Cape Town office. Thereafter, at some point, they need to go out of town or I have to be out of the office, and the only way to meet is online. I walk them through the whole process of what online video conferencing platform is best for them and they are often startled to learn how easy it is.
If YOU fall into this camp, I’d recommend that you learn more about how online life coaching works from a technological perspective to demystify the process. However If you’re on the fence you can also take advantage of the free online coaching consultation sessions I offer, and just try it out. You can meet with me online by booking an appointment at:
http://eftmanagement.co.za/contact/ : email@example.com : whatsapp +27827457552.
Once you schedule your free consultation, I will follow up with you to say hi, and make sure that you have everything you need for your online meeting.
You can get to know me, and I can get to know you. We’ll talk about what’s been going on in your life, your hopes for the future, and what working together might involve given your specifics. If, after talking, you feel comfortable with everything we can continue to meet until you’ve achieved your goals.
Online Life Coaching Can Be Even Better Than In-Person Coaching
The clients that I have coached online have told me, that they like being in the privacy and comfort of their own environment when they dig into deeper issues.
They feel like it helps them be more open and honest with both me, and themselves. The clients liked being able to share their home with me, whether it be the piano in the background, not having to dress up, meeting their dog or cat. Clients also liked knowing that, if they did get pretty emotional in a session, they did not have to worry about looking a wreck when walking back to their transport.
For many, having quiet time before and after our meetings to journal, to plan what they want to talk about, or to take immediate action on all the new ideas that often fall out of our sessions, (instead of being immediately distracted by driving) is a crucial part of the experience.
