Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1. What is business coaching and how does it differ from consulting or mentoring?

Business coaching is a co-creative partnership between the coach and the coachee. While a consultant provides solutions and a mentor guides based on their experience, a coach empowers you to discover your path, offering tools, strategies, and support to help you achieve your business goals.

2. What is the structure of a typical coaching session?

Each session is tailored to your unique needs. However, a typical session involves reviewing progress since our last meeting, discussing current challenges, and setting clear action steps for the future. There might also be tasks or ‘homework’ to ensure continuous growth between sessions.

3. How can I communicate with my coach outside of our scheduled sessions?

We understand that questions or challenges may arise between sessions. That’s why we’ve set up a dedicated Slack channel where you can always reach out. Join us here: AdvantEdge Slack Channel.

4. What’s expected of me as a coachee?

Coaching is a partnership, and its success largely depends on your active participation. You’ll be expected to come prepared, be open to new perspectives, complete any tasks assigned, and communicate honestly about your progress and challenges.

5. What can I expect from my coach?

You can expect your coach to be prepared, to listen actively, offer insights, tools, and resources, and provide a safe space for open dialogue. We’re here to support, challenge, and empower you throughout your entrepreneurial journey.

6. What happens after my coaching sessions are completed?

Your growth and success don’t end with the last session. You’ll continue to have access to our Slack community, where you can seek support, share achievements, and access valuable tools and resources.

7. Will there be tasks or ‘homework’ between sessions?

Yes, there might be simple tasks or assignments between sessions to ensure you’re implementing what you’ve learned and making consistent progress. These tasks are designed to help you move closer to your business goals.

8. What if I need additional services beyond coaching, like consulting or training?

We recognize that every business journey is unique. If you need additional services, we’re more than happy to discuss a different project or stream of work tailored to your specific needs.

9. Why is the coaching described as ‘co-creative’?

The term ‘co-creative’ emphasizes the collaborative nature of our coaching approach. It’s not just about the coach imparting wisdom; it’s about both parties – the coach and the coachee – working together, harnessing both their strengths, insights, and experiences.

10. Are there any resources I can access during my coaching journey?

Absolutely! Apart from our sessions, you’ll have access to tools, resources, and a community of like-minded individuals via our Slack channel, ensuring you have support every step of the way.
