What can you expect from a coaching session?

DISC assessment

Would you like to discover your personality style? The DISC assessment is an easy and practical tool that can help explain human behavior. After performing a DISC test, you will identify which of the four styles (D, I, S, or C) suits you best and, as a result, your strengths and weaknesses. This knowledge is the foundation of your self-development plan.

People have mixed communication styles and DISC helps you identify them to improve communication and relationships.

These packages include a DISC test, a debrief session and some coaching sessions.

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to do a coaching session with Alex Martinez. Even though it was only one session I really felt he helped me focus on the current issue was struggling with and structurally define path forward. The structured methodology he used enabled us to define the core of the issue and subsequently find a pat forward. Alex created a safe place to have an honest discussion which was paramount to get to the core of the issue. I have been lucky enough to have a few coaching sessions in my career and have to say this was one of the better ones.

FAQ

Coaching session and packages

What definitely differentiates the products offered on this page from the others available on the market is the personalized treatment that the customer receives. The real value obtained by following a program and coaching sessions is being able to discuss a topic of primary importance to you within the framework of the topic discussed in that session. In other words, the approach and methodology of these packages are designed to impact the client’s professional life immediately; the sessions seek to discover elements that allow professional and personal growth.

In Coaching, the client is expected to perceive a return of up to seven times the value invested in their training. Of course, this will depend on the client’s initial conditions, work environment, the market and other variables beyond our control.

No way. Typically, leadership courses aim to teach the theory behind the various management concepts and complement them with some practical examples. They are also usually group workshops. On the contrary, the coaching packages offered here are 100% practical and guarantee impact and effectiveness. Coaching sessions do not require theoretical knowledge or prior reading.

Typically, a coaching session lasts approximately 60 minutes; if necessary and available, the time can be extended in order to finish covering a specific developing topic.

The client decides the frequency of the sessions. Generally, one session per week is suggested. Depending on the number of sessions that have been contracted or the package that has been chosen, it could be extended to one session every two weeks. In the various packages, you can see the frequency of the sessions.

It will depend on what the client wants. You can choose a specific package with a set number of sessions or contract a certain number of sessions. The client can also extend the number of contracted sessions at any time and add sessions to a package if he or she wishes.

It’s not possible. Once a coaching package has been booked, a contract must be signed in which the client agrees to comply with the program and respect specific rules (for example, being present at the arranged time, carrying out pre-arranged activities or not carrying out other activities at the same time, etc.). If the client wishes to abandon the program by unilateral decision, the whole price must be paid according to the conditions indicated in the contract.

This depends. If these are private sessions, it is possible to reschedule sessions as long as they are within the time-frame indicated in the contract. If, on the other hand, it is a group session, it can only be rescheduled if the entire group agrees. If the client does not attend a scheduled session, it will be considered a loss and deducted from the contracted package.

Considering that the packages are 100% practical, what is received in advance are frameworks so that the client can begin to awaken curiosity and come up with ideas and questions for the coaching sessions. Depending on the package, a DISC test will also be included. Of course, readings can be recommended if requested, but these programs do not aim to become an expert in leadership or sales theory.

It depends on the package chosen. In many cases, it is preferred to respect the proposed order, but if it is a regular coaching session, then the path that the client wishes will be followed. The topic of conversation may revolve around the point being discussed following the program. Still, the specific objective of the session and the path to reaching the solution will depend on the interaction between the client and the coach. Generating an impact on the client’s professional life will always be sought and prioritized.

That depends on our objectives. In general, following a personal program will always provide better results in a shorter time since we can focus on specific topics of interest to the client. On the other hand, in group programs, standard or more in-demand topics will be addressed. You can always add private sessions to purchased group packages.

DISC packages

DISC packages will help the client discover their strengths and seek explanations about communication with other people. The information learned, especially the practice during the coaching sessions, is precious and will allow the client to take their professional career to another level.

What sets these DISC packages apart are the coaching sessions that are included. The DISC test allows us to discover our preferred personality style, but it is in the debriefing and coaching sessions that we can really see the use and importance of the information obtained from the test itself; the coaching sessions allow the client to put into practice what you have learned.

DISC is a personality test that takes its name from the acronym of the four personality styles it identifies: Dominant (D), Influential (I), Static (S) and Compliant (C). On this website, you can find many articles that will help you understand the characteristics of each style. Each coach is free to work with the personality test of her preference. Each test has its advantages, disadvantages, strengths and weaknesses. Still, based on my knowledge, the DISC test provides the fair and necessary information to generate an impact on clients’ work lives.

Thanks to the DISC test, the client will be able to identify their preferred personality style and, thus, the strengths and weaknesses of this style. However, thanks to the coaching sessions included in the packages, the client will be able to understand how to use this information correctly. This includes communication, negotiation, influence, staff management, etc.

Correct. When purchasing a DISC package, the personality test is included; we work with the company PeopleKeys®. When purchasing a package, the customer receives a code and a web address to enter to take the test. The result reaches both the client and the coach. The coach carries out the test debrief and is part of the package.

You have to be very careful when taking free online tests. Not all websites or companies that offer it are reliable. We work with PeopleKeys®, a company that guarantees the validity and certainty of the results. In general, the client should consider that when it comes to her personal development, it is better to invest a little in order to obtain more valuable results.

DISC is a test based on concepts developed by Marston more than 100 years ago. Many companies and psychologists took Marston’s concepts to design their personality tests. We work with a company that offers a test based on Marston’s original ideas and terminology. Many articles about DISC and its differences from other personality tests can be found online.

Career Coaching

In order to take our professional career to the next level and be able to manage staff, negotiate with other colleagues or clients, and influence or increase our connections, we need to discover the potential we have beyond our technical knowledge. The coaching sessions included in the professional career packages aim to immediately impact the technical professional by helping them find tools to manage their personality and that of others; this allows them to access a new executive or commercial world.

It is expected that after the first stage of personal discovery, that is, two or three weeks, the client will already be able to visualize the world differently and will, therefore, be able to use the tools learned in their work life.

That is precisely the objective of career coaching packages: to provide the client with the necessary tools to manage management or direction in the short or medium term. Many technical professionals rely on their knowledge to build a career, but this could have limitations at some point. Complementing this valuable background with executive coaching will help the professional to continue moving up in the professional world.

Although the client is already in a management position, the knowledge acquired through coaching would allow him or her to manage staff better, handle difficult situations or deal with complex negotiations. In addition, depending on the package chosen, you can design jobs that do not exist or even motivate yourself to look for a higher-ranking position outside your current environment.
