Tina Wahi of Results Coaches dropped me a post today. I had received numerous enquiries about the next step following registration.
In her post, she set out the process. Here is a summary of what she said:
“One of the aims is to clarify expectations, because this is a completely voluntary process from all sides involved (you, coaches, coachees as well as me to support the two groups) so I will be asking them for some patience along the way.
From the emails I received I understand the following aspects still need further clarification:
- this coaching is not trader specific coaching
- you will not be the coach (you had clarified that already but there were still emails indicating they thought you would be the coach)
- it’s not an on-site training/program (coaching can be done over the phone)
- it’s on a voluntary basis and coaches are not full-time coaches so commitments have to be agreed between individuals
The other step is that I will need to ask your fellow ICT participants who all would be interested in “taking” one or two of your volunteer coachees. Only then will I be able to introduce them to one another. I was planning on asking them during the call tomorrow.
As for the timeline, we usually encourage participants to start coaching after telecall 4 so there would be some time to organise this. However, I do understand volunteers need to be informed about that as well and for those who are just interested in goal setting we could get them in touch with a coach immediately.”
Just to add to Tina’s point (1). In my announcement I drew your attention between coaches and mentors. Coaches will help up set goals and will provide the process by which you will attain them. But unlike a mentor, a coach does not supply the content. That is supplied by the coachee.
