Step 1 - Coaching Proposition: The acquisition of the
coaching clients, known as pre-contemplation, happen as a
result of a number of opportunities like public platforms,
referrals and networking.
The potential client would express a desire to be coached, in
which case the potential client is brought into contact with
COMETSA office for follow up. We will then issue instruction
to the office to schedule a chemistry session with the potential
client. The office will also prepare for the intake by issuing
quotation, prepare the contract, and scheduling of the
monthly coaching sessions. This approach is very well
received by the clients as it projects a professional setup in
our coaching business.
10/2/2018 COMETSA Professional Coaching 9
Step 2 - Contracting, Coaching Intake, Bonding and
Rapport Building (Chemistry Session): The coaching
intake is one of the key aspects of the coaching programme,
and no coaching session will take place before the intake is
10/2/2018 COMETSA Professional Coaching 10
The intake includes confirmation of the duration of the coaching
programme, frequency of the coaching sessions, duration of
the coaching sessions, preferred venues for the coaching
session, preferred dates and times of the coaching sessions,
the fees per hour, and format of the coaching sessions (face
to face, telephonic, skype). The last part of this phase is the
contract document discussion and the actual signing off of the
contract. Most aspects of this phase are facilitated by
COMETSA Shared Services administrators.

Step 3 - The Actual Coaching Session: During coaching
session number one we work with the client on broader
understanding of what coaching is and is not. This is helpful,
especially when the client has not experienced coaching
before. The client is exposed to the eco-system of coaching.
Our first three coaching sessions are dedicated to the
formulation of the coaching topic, goal and at least three
coaching objectives for the twelve months coaching
10/2/2018 COMETSA Professional Coaching 12
It has become a confirmed approach and it works very well in
making sure that we do not embark on a coaching
programme without having confirmed the framework of the
coaching programme. The coaching topic, goal, and
objectives appear on every coaching session template and
report. This is to make sure that we are able to constantly
align the coaching session themes with the coaching topic,
goal and objectives. If we deviate, we are able to come up
with a valid reason why, and this is noted in the coaching
10/2/2018 COMETSA Professional Coaching 13
Step 4 - Session details: Each coaching session template
cover page and report contain the following standard data
about the session; coaching session no, client name,
position/title, organization of the client, date of the session,
start & end time of the session (duration of the session),
venue of the session, method (face to face, telephonic, skype,
etc.). Each coaching session starts with checking-in, which
includes reflection on the previous session. The main
purpose of the fifteen minutes checking-in is to lay the
foundation for the coaching session. It often happens that the
coaching themes of the session are deduced from the
checking-in part of the session. If the themes are not aligned
with the coaching topic, goal and the objectives, a preliminary
conversation is allowed.

Step 5 - Checking Out: Every session is concluded with a
checking-out of fifteen minutes. This serves as the evaluation
of the session and the commitment to action/or change of
behaviours/practices by the client.
Confirmation: what was confirmed by the session?
AHA Moment: at what point did the client experience an Aha
New Insights: what new insights and lessons did the client pick
up from the session?
Take home: what is the client taking home from the session?
New behaviours/practices: what is the client going to do
different after the session?

Step 6 - Details of the next coaching session: Before closing
the session, a discussion about the next session takes place.
This is to make sure that we are aligned with the schedule as
produced by COMETSA office, and to determine if there are
any changes that we need to deliver to the office. The key
aspects of the next coaching session are the date, time and
Step 7 – Closure: This take a form of chitchatting and walking
the client out of the venue.
10/2/2018 COMETSA Professional Coaching 16
Step 8 - Post session analysis: At the end of each coaching session we
prepare the client feedback report, and update the coaching portfolio for
the client. We look at the following points to complete the post session
How the coaching themes relate to the coaching programme topic, goal
The observations made from the current state of being of the client.
The client’s level of awareness brought up by the coaching session.
New practices and actions that the client commits to undertake.
The comments and actions from the session generated by coach during
the coaching session.
The tools, metaphors, examples, and visualization applied in the
The next action steps to be taken by the client and the coach after the
