People who are unfamiliar with coaching sometimes hesitate to work over the phone. They wonder how I can possibly get to know them well enough to help them, without the benefit of body language and face-to-face contact. To the skeptics, I say: give me a month. If you don’t feel fully recognized and comfortable coaching over the phone with me, I will eat my shoe. Part of my training includes the ability to hear not only what you say, but what you don’t say. Silences, I’ve found in my years of coaching, convey a treasure of information. And the convenience of finding a quiet corner of your own house, car or office for a coaching session, without the travel time, can’t be beat. Try it, you won’t be disappointed – I promise.
