Coaching Discovery/Strategy Call Information
What is a Discovery/Strategy Call?
The purpose of a Discovery/Strategy Call (DSC) is two-fold:
- You have something going on in your life that you need to explore to see how someone with a strategic brain – plus a coach’s training and expertise – would be able to assist.
- The two of us mutually discover whether we are a “fit” to work together following the DSC. My coaching style provides clients with a structure for thoughtful strategizing, supported by compassionate candor, and which is particular to their situations and aspirations. Note: There are many different kinds of coaches and coaching styles. You want to find someone who is a match for you – and you’re a match for the coach.
Preparing for a Discovery/Strategy Call
Once you have clicked through to register for your DSC you will receive a DSC Prep Form to complete and send to me. Writing out your responses helps you clarify your thinking and where you’d like to focus during our call. You’ll send it to me to ponder at least two days before your scheduled call, which you will set up using my online scheduling software system.
Because you will have completed and sent me your DSC Prep Form, we will be able to use our time with strategic intention when we talk.
How will we know if we should continue further work together after the DSC?
- You can say yes to these statements:
- The call was helpful to me.
- I am willing to dedicate time & attention to my aspirations.
- I am ready to make a financial investment in myself.
- I am committed to the process of growth.
- Do I (Meggin) have the expertise in the area(s) where you want to grow, learn, expand, or explore?
- Are our styles compatible? My clients describe my coaching style as lovingly direct.
- Are you coachable? You are coachable if the following are true about you:
- Willing to do the work. Although you will experience breakthroughs during coaching calls, the majority of the growth happens between calls. I have experienced this with my coaches for the last 21 years – and I currently have two coaches – and I see it play out with the clients I have on a weekly basis. It’s fascinating and not surprising.
- Willing to listen and be open to new possibilities and ways of thinking.
- Take responsibility for yourself, your choices, and your decisions.
Who benefits from coaching?
- People who are amazing (and may feel overwhelmed or underwhelmed).
- People who value excellence (and may struggle with perfectionism although this is hardly a requirement!)
- People with incredible potential that may be bottled up, channeled into the wrong projects, or not yet acknowledged (by self or by others).
- People who are intrigued by the thought of joyful work – defined in their own personal way.
- People who are in transitions, which seems to be nearly all of us, nearly all of the time!
