Yes! We coach people from all around the world and almost all of our coaching sessions are done over the phone, even if we live in the same neighborhood! Why coach remotely or over the phone?
Although it may seem more “personal” to conduct coaching face-to-face, our goal is to ensure you have a 100% distraction free environment. Often when a client is face-to-face they get distracted by what the coach is writing or doing vs allowing his/her mind to be fully open and engaged in the process. It’s actually part of the coaching contract that for all coaching sessions the client must be in a quiet, distraction free environment so complete attention can be dedicated to the 1 hour 15 minute session.
We do absolutely invite a face-to-face meeting or Skype/Facetime session on the first set-up consultation and then offer either face-to-face or audio (phone) coaching for the remaining coaching package. For international sessions we advise Skype audio as the best option to avoid dial-in phone expenses. In the US we provide a secure conference call line, Skype audio, or basic phone call options. It is the client’s choice for all sessions to decided which mode of communication works best for him/her.
