Five Questions to Ask a Prospective Coach

The following will give you important information that you need in order to choose a coach that offers the perspective you’re looking for. Feel free to copy this down for those times when you want to interview a prospective coach.

Question One: Where were you trained?

Up until a few years ago virtually anyone could hang a “shingle” out and call themselves a coach. This has changed. Many coaching schools now offer extensive professional training certified through the International Coach Federation (ICF) which sets worldwide standards for coaching practice. It’s wise to hire someone who has been trained in an ICF program. If you wish, you can ask what school they attended and then Google to see if that school is accredited through ICF.

Question Two: What is your approach to coaching?

Check on your coach’s philosophy. Does he or she follow one that appeals to you? Talk at some length about this. Most coaches are happy to discuss what they do and why. Coaches use a variety of approaches. There isn’t a list of the variety of styles. However, when you talk with them and get your questions answered you’ll get a sense about whether or not he or she is a coach you can work with. You can also ask this person what he or she sees as the difference between coaching and psychotherapy or counseling. Go to the area on this website that talks about “what a coach does” where I talk about this very important difference.

Question Three: What can I expect out of working with you?

How many sessions does this coach recommend you try before you can see if this coaching approach is effective? How does your coach measure effectiveness? For example, does this person stress insight or measurable results? Or a combination of both?

Question Four: What do you charge?

Fees vary, anywhere from $60 to $300 for a 45-50 minute session. It is important to check your coach’s experience and credentials. For example, does he or she have an Associate Certified Coach (ACC) Professional Certified Coach (PCC) or Master Certified Coach(MCC) credential from ICF? How long has he or she been coaching people?

Question Five: Will there be a coaching contract? If so, what does it cover?

A coaching contract is standard with most coaches. The contract usually specifies the number of sessions, fee structure, the time for each session, who is responsible for making contact if by phone, and the cancellation policy. In addition, most contracts will make it clear that coaching is not psychotherapy and that the client should let the coach know at any time if the client feels psychotherapy would be more appropriate.


You might want to review these questions as you think about whether or not coaching is right for you at this time. Whatever you decide, remember one thing: coaching is not a luxury. It is a necessity for those who want to achieve important life goals. A coach will help you streamline your path to success, thereby saving you time, money and physical energy. Yes, you do deserve a coach.

Maria’s Coaching Philosophy
Coaching puts “great ideas” into action

We are surrounded as never before with books, programs, and other forms of information that give us great ideas about how to be successful. Yet many of us are stumped when it comes to applying what we have learned intellectually to everyday life. We might know what we “should” do, but not specifically “how” to do it. That’s where a coach comes in. Working together, we discover what is most important to you and where to focus your energy. Suddenly insight is married to action. Your goals come alive with possibility and promise. You are not simply reading about powerful success principles, you are using them!

Coaching is a necessity for today’s lifestyle

With so many decisions vying for your attention every day, it is easy to be busy without accomplishing much. How many times have you gone to sleep at night after a busy day, convinced that you didn’t accomplish what was important to you? Have you ever said to yourself: “One day, when things settle down, then I’ll start that new business (write that book, get the education I’d like, spend more time with my family having fun, etc)?” When your life is busy, coaching helps you sort through competing priorities to zero in on what will bring you the biggest return on your energy investment. You stop wasting your money, time, and physical energy. You go to sleep at night satisfied, not frustrated.

You hold the secret to your success

The way I see it, success is doing what you said you’d do, consistently, with clarity, focus, ease, and grace. This is what those terms mean. Clarity is about seeing what you value and are meant to be doing. Focus has to do with how you use energy such as money, time, creativity. Ease is about learning to work diligently without struggling. And one aspect of grace that I use in coaching means cultivating the capacity to be grateful for being on your path or, as Joesph Campbell would say, your hero’s journey. Coaching brings out your natural gifts. You find that you have everything it takes to live a productive, happy, contributing life, and that all you ever needed were a few simple “success skills.” Finally, you see that YOU are the success secret you’ve been waiting for!

All About Coaching
What does a coach do?

To have a coach or not have one: that is the question. More people are thinking about hiring a coach, but many don’t have a clear picture about what to expect so that they can make an informed decision.

A coach helps you discover what is really important to you. Not what you should do, but what you want to do. With a coach you can look at what you value—what really gives you “juice.” Together you create “games worth playing and goals worth playing for.” For example: do you want to write that book you’ve been putting off for five years? Travel around the world with a loved one? Open a business? Bring your current business to the next level? A coach partners with you to design effective strategies to do all this and more. You will be encouraged to go beyond your personal “stopping point.” It’s that all too familiar point at which you’d normally give up on your goal—or yourself. Finally, a coach celebrates your successes with you. In a nutshell: a coach is someone in your corner. His or her only agenda is to support yours.

What does a coach not do?

It is important to be clear about a coach’s scope of practice and role. This is what a coach doesn’t do:

Give legal counsel, although a coach can help clarify whether or not to seek legal counsel.
Give medical advice, although a coach may help you see whether or not you need to seek medical advice to meet your goals.
Give financial advice, although a coach might help you look at whether or not a financial advisor would improve your relationship with money.
Act as a therapist, although a coach may refer you to a counselor to help deal with emotional or psychological situations.

There are some important differences between coaching and counseling

See how coaching and counseling differ and you can make a clear choice about what you really need. A counselor/therapist helps you deal with current crises, such as a loss, threat of loss, or other major life changes. Examples include grieving for a loved one, resolving difficult family dynamics, or adjusting emotionally to a shift in job status or health. Counseling or therapy also diagnoses and treats depression, anxiety and unresolved issues from the past. Counselors also work with couples to deal with difficulties in communication which, un-examined, could lead to a separation or divorce.

A well-trained coach will not do any of the above. Instead, he or she works with you to achieve future goals and dreams. A coach will encourage you to focus upon what’s important to you now and how to accomplish what you truly desire.

Sometimes we all need some support and healing before we can focus on the future. In that case, counseling is often the best bet. However, once you’ve “healed up” it may be appropriate to get back into your game, and that’s where a coach comes in.
