How Coaching is Conducted

Coaching can take place by phone or in person. The choice depends on the individual, the coach, and the type of coaching involved.

Most corporate coaching takes place onsite or face-to-face with the client. Business coaching typically takes place at the client’s office or worksite. Life coaching can take place on the phone, in someone’s office, in a cafe, in nature, or in nearly any location that supports a confidential coaching conversation.

Coaching conversations usually last between 30 and 60 minutes, depending on the coach’s structure or method, as well as the client’s schedule and goals. A typical coaching engagement will include regular sessions that occur over a range of three to four months to upward of 12 to 18 months, for higher level goals or corporate engagements.
