Frequently Asked Questions
Coaching sessions involve gaining a better understanding of your needs as a client. Session length depends on the service chosen. Coaching commitments generally range from 3-6 months depending on the types of writing projects submitted.
Prior to each session, clients are asked to prepare and submit a feedback form to the coach. This form lists what clients did during the past week, feedback from the coach on recommendations discussed in the last session, new information clients would want to work on during the current session and how they are feeling at that time on scheduled action items. Toward the end of the sessions, the coach and client decide together what actions will be taken during the week based on that day’s topic.
The deadline for writing revisions will vary based on the nature of the work (i.e. a manuscript versus a one page document), and the length of time needed to complete the revisions. Clients will be informed on the deadline for the revisions during the coaching sessions.
Clients must submit requests two to three weeks before the deadline of their writing projects. For writing projects requiring extensive work (+100 pages), they need to be submitted 3-6 months before the deadline. It is important to state the deadline for all writing projects in the subject line of the email correspondence.
The guidelines and writing projects must be submitted in a Word document to email@example.com.
Clients may contact the coach by email (anytime) or by telephone (by appointment). We understand that most of the learning, growth and results occur between the coaching sessions. Therefore, clients are strongly encouraged to send questions which will be answered in the order received via email.
The coaching sessions will be conducted online via Zoom conference. The Zoom conference app can be downloaded via https://zoom.us/. The schedule, cost, and convenience are mutually agreed by the coach and client. It is important that coaches secure a space not subject to disruption during sessions.
