Where is this Conversation Going?
Establishing the Coaching Agreement for Effective Outcomes

Meg Rentschler, LCSW, PCC, is passionate about the field of coaching and helping coaches make an impact in the world through our powerful partnerships with clients. It is her love for the coaching profession which led her to create her weekly talk show, STaR Coaches, which focuses on strategies, tools and resources that we can use to build our skills and businesses. She focuses on two passions in her coaching practice. One is to help executives and business leadership function in a way that promotes the health and well-being of themselves, their teams and their companies. The second is to help other coaches reach their potential, stretch their muscles and build their skills, businesses and confidence as coaches and be a part of a community that supports them in their ongoing learning and growth. Meg is an instructor and mentor for two coach training programs. She has worked with hundreds of coaches to build skills and businesses as professional coaches.

Stephen Coxsey, MA, PCC, is a coach trainer, mentor, and assessor. He taught an introductory coaching course for an ACTP for over five years and is currently developing a positive psychology master class for that ACTP. He has mentored dozens of coaches preparing for their oral exams through two ACTPs and is a PCC markers assessor for both. Steve is an executive and personal leadership coach with twelve years of experience coaching small business owners and ten years of experience coaching senior managers and emerging leaders in business and government organizations. His approach to coaching integrates skills and applied research from the fields of human development, positive psychology, and neuroscience. His experience as a consultant in schools, as a therapist, and as a co-owner and manager of a small business before becoming a coach all inform his understanding of the challenges his clients face.

Program Description:

Have you ever had a coaching session where you thought you knew where the client was headed, but by the end you felt like you’d been going in circles? Or a session where you felt pressured to get a clear outcome upfront, but your client just wouldn’t cooperate? You are not alone. These are a couple of common challenges with establishing the coaching agreement.

In this presentation we will overview the importance of the coaching agreement for an overall engagement and how it sets up an expectation to have a clear agreement for each session. Then we will explore the components of a clear, workable session agreement, the challenges in co-creating one, and how we draw on other core competencies and coaching skills to overcome those challenges. We will call on the wisdom and knowledge of the group in an interactive exercise where we identify common difficulties in establishing the session agreement and use creating coaching approaches to overcome them.

Program Outcomes:

In this session we will:

  • Explore Coaching Agreement from the current and new ICF core competency frameworks
  • Understand the importance of the “tiers” of the agreement
  • Address challenges that arise in establishing the agreement
  • Identify paths to a clear agreement
