Frequently Asked Questions
How does it work?
Advisory or Coaching is usually via online video conferencing, but we usually try to make at least one on-site visit, or more, depending on your location. Advisory sessions are when the client needs the help and support. Coaching sessions are weekly (45 minutes) on a set day at a set time to create momentum and so you can plan your week. Your advisor or coach will be available, via phone or email, for any urgent questions or situations that need attention.
What am I committing to?
You’re in control. While you are not committing yourself to any length of time or contract with your coach – you ARE committing yourself to significant professional development. While receiving advisory or coaching, you will be expected to take the action in your business that you have said you will take. Part of having this support is also being accountable to someone; ensuring that your joint decisions actually happen. If you are struggling to take action, it is important for you to discuss why you are finding it difficult, so you and your advisor/coach can work together towards your business success. Otherwise, there are no hidden agreements, no obligation to continue further than what you decide is working very well for you, and in your particular circumstances. A coach/client relationship often becomes one of friendship and certainly relies on mutual trust. You are committing yourself to open and honest communication with a real desire to improve your business.
How long should I receive these support services?
It’s completely up to you! You pay in monthly blocks, and you decide. Most of our clients have very long-term relationships with us, but others want specialist advice in a particular area. You should always ask yourself, ‘Am I receiving considerable value from the process‘, and if you are, and it is paying off – then it makes sense to keep going. The vast majority of our clients continue some form of relationship with us; HBA Membership. Our goal is to always remain connected and helpful.
