What you’ll get as one of my Certification clients

I don’t believe in offering the bare minimum. You deserve awesome support on your Certification journey!

More than the minimum coaching

The minimum requirement for Certification coaching is 1-hour per month. However, most of my clients have found that this isn’t often enough for them. They feel that we develop a stronger rapport and coaching relationship if we coach at least twice a month.

And, let’s face it! Sometimes life happens, and all of your best laid plans fly out the window. So we’ll aim for a full hour the first session of each Certification month, so that if life happens, you can rest easy knowing the minimum is met – and you can cancel or reschedule additional appointments. What I’m trying to say is that it gives you greater flexibility.

Oh! By the way, you can count up to 12 hours of YOUR Certification Coaching toward your 100 coaching hours!

Support via email and 24-hour voice mail

You’re welcome to email me or call my 24-hour voice mail number at any time, to leave me an update, to ask a question, or for whatever reason you’d like! The voice mail number doesn’t physically ring, so you can call any hour of the day or night.

If there’s ever anything I can do to better support your Certification journey, please let me know!

BONUS #1: Discovery Sessions PRIOR to Certification (one month FREE!)

I’ve found that my Certification clients prefer to start Certification coaching PRIOR to their first pod calls. So I offer you the opportunity to begin our coaching relationship early – at no extra charge!

  • Having our Discovery prior to your first pod call means that there are fewer new things all at once.
  • Being on the receiving end of Discovery gives you a chance to learn how at least one other coach does Discovery and it can help you decide how you want to do your own Discovery Sessions with your clients.
  • You may want extra support prior to your first pod call, when so much is unknown.

Please know that any coaching done PRIOR to your Certification pod call is not considered “official” Certification coaching, in that it will not count toward your required 6-months of Certification coaching or your coaching hours during Certification. But it can help make your transition go more smoothly. All I ask is that you pay the first month’s Certification coaching fee in advance of our first Discovery Session together.

BONUS #2: Up to one additional month FREE prior to Certification

We can begin your Certification coaching up to two months before your first pod call – for no additional charge!

  • The first month we’ll do Discovery Sessions.
  • And the second month we can coach around any topic you’d like.
  • Or, if you choose to, you could ask for mentoring instead and ask whatever questions you’d like!

But it can help make your transition go more smoothly. All I ask is that you pay the first month’s Certification coaching fee in advance of our first Discovery Session together.

BONUS #3: FREE Oral Exam Prep Session!
My own Certification coach offered me an Oral Exam Prep Session – which I loved! And I’d like to offer you one, too – at no extra charge! When it’s time, we’ll schedule a 45-minute to 1-hour Oral Exam Prep Session, to help you shine!
BONUS #4: Mentoring too, if you want!

During Certification, you may find that you have a lot of questions. You can contact your Certification Pod Leader (CPL) for support AND you can ask me for support, as your Certification coach.

One reason why my clients like the opportunity to have more than one session a month is that – as long as we have the 1-hour minimum coaching for the month – we can use some of the remaining time for mentoring.

I encourage you to bring mentoring questions up at the beginning of a session. They could be potential topics for coaching, or we might decide to save a few minutes at the end of a session for mentoring. Or, you may have a whole bunch of questions, and we can decide together how we want to handle them in the time we have together.

You’ll have email and 24-hour voice mail support too!

 

BONUS #5: Option to continue coaching at a reduced rate

If you’d like to continue coaching beyond your pod calls for any reason, you can continue coaching with me at a reduced rate which is locked in for the 12 months following your last pod call. After that, I reserve the right to raise the rate.

Some people complete their 100 coaching hours within the 6 month time frame, but others take longer – up to 10 months. For example, I intentionally set up my schedule to coach only 3 weeks out of every 4 during Certification, so it took me about 9 months to accrue my 100 coaching hours. If you find that you’ll be continuing beyond your pod calls, you may want the extra support of additional coaching – which is why I offer it as an option!

You don’t have to decide now whether you want this option or not – but I hope you like knowing that it’s available.

 

BONUS #6: Sample forms, tips and hints, and more!

I’ll give you – as a Certification client – permission to use the forms, outlines, and documents that I share with you as a starting place for your own coaching practice. I’ll also share my favorite tools, resources, and other hints and tips along your Certification journey. All I ask is that if you’re sharing them with your clients, that you make them your own and not copy them word for word. Put a bit of YOUR personality into them!

For example, after our first Discovery Session, I will share some documents with you that I typically share with my clients. AND I’ll share my outline for my first Discovery Session with you, to use as a starting place when you outline your OWN Discovery Sessions. Sometimes it’s hard to start from a blank page! This gives you a reference point and then you can customize it to suit you and your coaching practice.

It was a real delight to work with Anne throughout the process of attaining my Professional Coaching Certification. As my direct Certification Coach, Anne co-created with me a wonderful learning environment where the coaching process could be thoroughly explored, and she did a simply fantastic job of “Modeling the Model.” Her support, encouragement (and) the awesome example she set as a Coach herself really were invaluable to me. Anne is quite simply a “Rock-Star” coach that I would recommend highly to any future Certification students or to anyone who could be supported by her wise, creative, fun and passionate Coaching style.. A++ Anne! Steve Layt, CPCC

CEO of Glide Path Leadership and Globally Experienced President / CEO

I began working with Anne when we were in coach training with CTI three years ago so it was natural to continue working with her throughout my Certification. Anne has a great understanding of how Certification works and will guide you in managing the stress and requirements of the process. Anne “talked me off the ledge” more than once during this period. I love, love, love coaching but the Certification process was choking me. I was also in Leadership at the same time as my training and Certification (I do not recommend that path) so the demands of both were overwhelming at times. Anne helped me find new perspectives and ways of managing the demands of both. She was by my side to celebrate my victories~~no matter how small~~ and get me through the failures. I learned so much in working with her and having her support during this time. Her ability to help me manage the Co-Active Model and see it’s importance was key in my actually becoming certified. She helped me see the Model wasn’t in my way, I was in my own way. She is, without a doubt, the person you want beside you during the Certification process. Her knowledge and ability to navigate the bumpy waters of Certification will get you to your end goal with much more ease. I am profoundly grateful for her wisdom and her unwavering belief in me.

CEO of Ripple Effect Life Coaching

It is my great joy to recommend Coach Anne Gaal. The coaching I have received from her has been nothing short of life changing. She supported me throughout my professional coach certification journey and still coaches me to this day. Our time together has produced a profound and positive shift for me. Not only as a coach but also in my every day life. Anne is generous with encouragement and celebrations but also has a laser like way of helping me see where I might be holding myself back. It’s fair to say that, because of her coaching and mentoring, I have had a full and overflowing roster of coaching clients from day one. And she achieves all of this in a warm, strong, matter-of-fact way that always makes me feel safe, heard, valued, and transformed. Okay. Anne is magical. There. I said it.
