MANY PEOPLE find the investment of time and money for coaching prohibitive. I’m often asked whether coaching is covered by medical insurance—it’s not. In many cases, a company will sponsor the coaching, but often only for senior executives or people earmarked for that level, or for a leadership role. In order to make coaching more broadly accessible, I decided to create this, the Self-Coaching Online program—both the Life and the Executive versions. Whichever version you choose, it’s designed to give you all the awareness introductions you’d gain from a regular, live coaching program, plus it provides a structure for you to follow—and questions you can use—that, if applied intelligently and with diligence, will enable you to find the answers you’d normally get from having a coach sitting in front of you.
Of course, the reason why people engage a coach is to have someone listen skillfully and ask the right questions. Therefore, I’ve made sure that, by choosing the self-coaching online program, you won’t be entirely alone. You’ll be able to submit questions and check your progress along the way—to see if you’re asking and answering the coaching questions correctly. Your submissions will get my personal attention, and I’ll make sure you gain confidence in your ability to coach yourself as you progress.

The Self-Coaching Online program will improve personal effectiveness
The Self-Coaching Online program is designed to improve your personal effectiveness, both in the short and long term. It will work for you if you’re already fairly well-balanced and moving forward in your life, and you’d like to take things up a level. You’ll need to have a reasonable level of self-awareness for this process to work.
The Self-Coaching Online program will not work if you’re suffering from anxiety or depression or any psychological disorder that is currently affecting your ability to perform. For that, you first need to see a psychologist. When that’s sorted, then you can use this program to help get you back on track again. If you’re dealing with complex issues, like extricating yourself from a family business that is wrought with politics, you might also struggle to get your result from this program, unless you already have a high level of self-awareness and/or you’ve received coaching before.
So, the Self-Coaching Online program is for you if you’re reasonably self-aware and self-motivated, you’ve done at least some self-reflection and some work on yourself, and you want to take your personal effectiveness to the next level. Perhaps you’re looking to improve your personal discipline and performance, your relationships and your general sense of fulfillment from life—then you’d be looking at the Life version. Or perhaps you seek to build the courage and confidence to take the next big step in your business or career, or to improve your leadership performance—then you’d go for the Executive version.
