Internet Coaching – What is it and how does it work?
6th September, 20100 Comments
Online coaching using Coaching Interactive software combines powerful coaching tools, skilled coaches and the internet to give clients a unique coaching experience. Being accessed through the internet this makes life, business and wellbeing coaching more accessible, effective and affordable.
World-wide celebrities such as Deepak Shopra, Byron Katie and Robin Sharma all have self-coaching programmes on the Coaching Interactive platform based on their highly successful and tested techniques for personal development that have been used by millions of people across the globe.
Internet coaching provides the ideal opportunity for everyone around the world to be able to be coached and to reflect on how their life is currently and how they would like it to be in the future. Coaching online allows the client to think and reflect using the power of the written word, something which is not available in normal coaching sessions on a 1-to-1 basis in face-to-face or telephone coaching. The ability to access, evaluate and solve problems with the support of an internet coach are so vital in helping the client grow and develop in their personal and business lives.
All successful coaching involves the client, or coachee, in reflective thinking and behaving but with Interactive Coaching, the coachee has many more opportunities to do just this. They are able to take measured steps on what action they need to take, what barriers or obstacles they are going to face and have to overcome on their coaching journey. Using the highly effective Coaching Interactive programme, the client can be supported all the way by their coach to find those right solutions and make the necessary changes in thinking, feeling and behaving.
Many clients who have gone through a Coaching Interactive journey will admit to being a touch skeptical when first introduced to the concept. However, it does not take them long to realize the potential of internet coaching in terms of convenience, the power of the written word, the affordability compared to traditional coaching and the experience of the carefully trained and selected Coaching Interactive coaches. Having the ability to choose the time at which the client can start or stop the coaching is a big benefit for the busy individual. By writing their responses rather than verbalizing them, offers the coachee the unequalled ability to really say what they mean, to change the way the words come across and reflect on what they have written relative to how they feel. The response from the coach too can be read over and over in order to extract the true meaning and to make the most of the powerful questions to help them arrive at the best solution for the coachee.
Internet coaching also allows complete anonymity and confidentiality. Many clients do not want to share their identity or are shy and maybe embarrassed about seeing a coach face-to-face or speaking with them on the telephone. This solves their challenge and allows them to be true to themselves and to the coach, feeling safer about baring their innermost thoughts, fears, worries and anxieties to a complete stranger. Whilst rapport is a key driver in making coaching relationships work and is closely associated with personal relationships developed from close personal contact, rapport can just as easily be developed over the internet. Today, many personal and business exchanges take place with friends and colleagues all over the world using email and other forms of social media and the relationships built through internet coaching are no different.
To summarise, internet coaching offers everyone with access to the web with an efficient, convenient and affordable way to access coaching that delivers exceptional results.
