Coaching is the process of helping a client perform better professionally and personally. It is the client that does the work with the guidance of the coach.
A typical coaching agreement may range from $600 to $1,200 per month (depending on the number of sessions per month), with a minimum duration of 3 months, often extending to 6 or 12 months.
Sessions are for 1 hour and may be held in person (if located in the Tri Valley Area), by phone, or through an application like Zoom and FaceTime.
Keep in mind, it is the client that drives the coaching process based on his/her needs and wants. The coach simply offers advisement and accountability, which is what most people need to accomplish their objectives.
What is consulting?
Consulting is the process of helping a client obtain specific objectives as defined by the client. This is a situation in which both the consultant and client do the work.
The investment of time and effort is considerable for both consultant and client and project fees are calculated accordingly. A typical project may range from $2,000 to $50,000 and last from several hours to 6 months.
It is the consultant that drives the process based on the needs and wants of the client, and the issues uncovered during the assessment phase.
Most work, if not all, is completed onsite at the client’s location, working in collaboration with client’s staff.
What is training?
Training is the process of teaching a client how to perform an activity.
A typical training project may range from $1,000 to $10,000 and last one session (workshop) to several sessions over a period of several weeks.
The training objectives and sessions are mutually determined by both the client and the trainer.
Similar to consulting projects, training is conducted onsite at the client’s location or conference venue.
