An often-heard coaching myth is that face to face coaching is the only way to work with clients. I say no, that isn’t so, as other forms of coaching – over the telephone, through emails – are equally effective and valuable. The principles of working with a client are the same no matter what format is used – setting the foundation through establishing a coaching agreement; co-creating the relationship, by establishing trust with the client and a coaching presence; communicating effectively, through listening, questioning and good communications, and facilitating client’s learning and results. A benefit of telephone or email coaching is that for the client, it is time and energy saving – no travel time to the coach’s office, no parking worries, no traffic jams. How good is that?
