All populations within the legal profession.
I design the coaching engagement based on a conversation with the potential client (and/or organization as appropriate) and an understanding of the goals of the engagement; number and length of sessions vary. I am certified in the Myers Briggs Type Indicator and generally use it at the outset of a coaching engagement.
I expect honesty–with regard to their goals and also feedback on our work together so that I can adjust/respond as appropriate. I expect professionalism with regard to seeing through on their commitments–including keeping to schedules we set and payment, if private pay.
I seek background information if the engagement would benefit from that feedback and all agree.
Fees range depending on the engagement; generally a project fee (as opposed to hourly billing) based on the goals and the anticipated length and needs of the engagement.
