Yesterday I wrote a piece about transparency of coaching, or how accessible the coaching industry is (or is not) to the more general public. Now I want to take a look at transparency in coaching, or said another way, how easy it is for a client to perceive the progress and process over time.
Clearly we can agree that any coach worth their salt will be providing perceptible value for their client whenever they are interfacing. It’s industry standard, you could say, that during a coaching session a client is realizing valuable insights, solid direction, and a more or less immediate experience that “yes, I am more clear/focused/ready for what’s next”. But what about such clarity over the duration of the coaching engagement, whether weeks, months or years?
