Now, how does coaching work?
Coaching is usually a structured yet flexible progression. Our coaching process has three different activities linked to it. The process is supported by our coaching model DANCE.
The first activity in the coaching process is that of building rapport with the client. This is supported by the activity of goal setting. The second activity in the coaching process is building self awareness and assessing the strengths of the client. This is done using world class Psychometric tools. This activity is closely linked to building strategies for achieving the goals. Since the journey is as important as the goal itself, these linkages help us to ensure that the client is working on his or her goals from an area of strength.
The final activity in the process is that of imbibing the learning on the way. This is done through constant reflection on the way towards the goals. In the DANCE coaching model, this is represented by “elevate and acknowledge” stage.
- Coaching takes place either in person or through phone of an hour each
- It is spread over 12 sessions
- Coaches charge differently for their services. Some would charge you per session basis and some on package basis.
As a coaching client, make sure that the coaching process:
- suites your needs and aspiration
- gives you flexibility to change the structure based on new insights you may get one into the sessions
- Is built by mutual agreement with your coach
Small Home Improvement Contractors Can Rank Highly in Google Searches
For contractors, the rules of the internet apply just the same as they do for everyone. So, increasing your visibility online requires the same techniques, no matter what industry you are in. You will rank where you rank within Google searches for the same reasons that other companies rank where they rank. If you rank highly, it is likely because your website provides valuable content, among other things.
The best way to increase your ranking with Google as well as other search engines is to provide the visitor of your site with an overall helpful experience. If you think about it, you will almost never open up your browser and type in a URL of a site that is not helpful. You type Google because it helps you search. You type Hotmail because it helps you check your email. You type in CNN because it helps you check the news. People do not visit websites out of charity. They surf the net to look for something.
They are looking for information, products, services and entertainment. So, if your site isn’t truly providing any of these entities to the website visitor, your website will not rank highly. Remember, every search that someone performs is like a test for Google. Google’s and other search engines’ main goal is to provide the most relevant and helpful results for the person who is searching them. Of course, some responsibility will always be put on the searcher to perform a smart search. But, this is a different subject.
Assuming the search keywords are relevant to the intended results, the actual search results should provide what the searcher is looking for. If not, the search engine has failed. To that effect, if people continually perform searches for something and they continually click on the second or third page of the results, these sites will eventually start to rank higher and will likely be on page one of the results before long.
