FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions
How do you create measurable goals for soft skills, like influencing and delegating?
We use a scale of 1-10, with 10 being mastery. The leader (and raters if 360 feedback is done) says what level they are at now and why. We define as precisely as we can what the levels and set a goal for improvements. Here’s a paper Star wrote on the topic of, Making Intangibles, Tangible.
What if I need something outside a program in the four programs?
Contact us to customize a program that meeting your needs. All programs come with a built-in extension that can be executed if needed. We frequently add custom coaching packages on to our workshops that help sustain the learnings.
How long before I see results?
It’s up to you! While we are working in each coaching session. It’s up to you to apply and commit to the changes in behaviors, goals, or processes. The more you put into your success, the faster it will occur.
How long is a coaching session and how long does a program last?
In the chart, we say a typical coaching session is 55 minutes because most are. We will adjust the length of coaching session based on what works best for your time constraints, learning style, goals. For example, reviewing and giving feedback on a presentation may take 90 minutes. Creating a new habit of daily planning maybe a 5-minute call for 10 days. How long a program lasts depends how frequently we coaching sessions are. For example, 10 sessions every 2 weeks generally takes 4-6 months. Note the Transform Program includes a half day of coaching.
Do you have some examples of from real clients?
There are hundreds of stories of success, large and small. Some surprising. Here’s a few.
How can you tell if someone is ready to be coached?
If you are ready to make and commit to a change that’s a great start. In addition what makes a person ready is: a wiliness to learn, be open, uncomfortable trying new things, and dedicated time for coaching and the resultant actions
What do you not do as a coach?
We are not a business coach. We will help you figure strategies to create positive and lasting changes but do not consult or tell you how to run your business. We are not health, wellness, or relationship coaches and sometimes will explore these areas if they seems to be blocking success.
Will Star be my coach?
Maybe. Yes, if you and Star believe there will benefit. We believe in abundance and that there is the right coach out there for you. It’s highly recommended that you interview at least 3 coaches before selecting who you want to work with. If Star is not the right match for you, she will tell you right away and may refer you to another coach. The other coach may work under Star Leadership or if it’s area of expertise Star Leadership doesn’t focus on, like career counseling – she will pass on her recommendations.
