Often, after an initial evaluation, sessions can be conducted face-to-face or remotely, usually by phone, email, video calls, and sometimes via instant messaging. A large part of coaches prefer sessions within this time range. There are a number of reasons why these sessions are popular. First of all, most people's attention spans cannot be maintained beyond this period of time, so the session makes the most of this period before the client is exhausted and their attention begins to lose their attention.
Secondly, the length of this session allows you and your client to explore the topics in quite depth and, at the same time, adapt to anything that comes up during the discussion. Therefore, your conversation can take place normally without any need for either of you to feel rushed. The average coaching relationship lasts one year. Some coaching relationships are just a few sessions and others continue for several years.
For internal training programs, in the program manual, provide the parameters for the duration of the training commitment. In Executive Coaching it is more common to have ninety minute sessions spaced monthly and in Life Coaching this may vary. As you may already know, a large proportion of potential clients may not have an unlimited budget, so the amount they can afford to spend on coaching will affect the structure of the training process. These sessions may be suitable for counseling relationships in which behavioral issues need to be addressed in order to unlock the potential of the coaching client.
For example, it may be unnecessary to have extended coaching sessions if you interact with your coaching client on a weekly basis. It is possible that many executive coaching programs, as well as personal coaching, were initially established with a certain duration, that is, each coaching situation is different, so try to adjust the duration of the training sessions to suit the needs of your client.
