Coaching FAQ’s

Everything you need to know
about Coaching with Modo!*

*Almost! If you still have a question after reading these FAQ's please call or email us!

Coaching is gaining popularity, and is highly sought after by executives, but many people still aren't sure whether coaching is right for them. On this page we hope to answer some of the questions you might have about Coaching.

What is coaching?

Coaching is a ruthlessly compassionate conversation between a coach and client that facilitates the clients highest potential, while working towards the clients desired outcomes. Coaching works at the level of structure and process about your content. This means no matter what area of your life you wish to engage a coach for, they can assist you to get your outcome. Read more about our coaching here.

Why choose coaching?

Sometimes talking things through with your friends or family just doesn't cut it. They may not be asking you the right questions, or providing the support that you need. Hiring a coach will help you get a new perspective on your challenges. A coach can spot patterns of thinking and behaviour that your friends and family can't see. Sometimes it takes a trained professional. Want more reasons to choose a Meta-Coach, read our blog here.

Is it worth it?

We know that to really know if coaching is worth it, you need to be able to measure the return on your investment. At the beginning of each coaching program we set metrics to ensure that you can measure your progress. We keep you on track to achieving the things that you say you want, so that you know the investment you've made is getting you the outcome you desire. Wondering if coaching really works? Read our blog here.

What can coaching help me with?

Are you accredited?

YES! All of our coaches are Associate Certified Meta-Coaches (ACMC) and Meta-NLP™ Master Practitioners.  We are also experienced Enneagram facilitators and certified trainers and assessors! We have a thirst for understanding human behaviour and so we have trained in many methodologies of the human potential movement. (NLP, Neuro-Semantics, Stages and Somatic Practices to name a few!) Our experience allows us to bring many tools to your coaching session to assist you in getting what you want, in a way that makes sense to you!

How many coaching sessions will I need?

Our coaching programs can include multiple coaching sessions, 6, 12 or 24 sessions per cycle. These sessions are usually conducted every 3 to 4 weeks. Once you've completed a cycle you can then check in with your coach on an individual session by session basis. Every client is different and wants different things, so you can co-create a program that is tailored to you. 

Before you begin coaching with Modo, we'll send you information on how to get the most out of your coaching sessions, so that you feel prepared.

Should I Coach Online or Face to Face?

We get asked this question a lot, (we've tried to answer that question here) and both have its unique benefits. Ultimately however, the choice is yours! What's important is that you choose a comfortable environment free from distractions. This will provide the optimal conditions for coaching. If you choose to coach with us online, we use Skype or Zoom to host the sessions, which you can record. If you would prefer your sessions in-person with your coach, we currently offer these too in Albury and Brisbane.

I've never experienced coaching before!?

This is great news! It means that you are stepping into something new, and from this point, change can take place. Coaching can feel like an unfamiliar process the first couple of times. Believe it or not, that's a great thing, in order to impact change in the area that is the key to your development, we need to do something you've never done - have a conversation like no other that will challenge your status quo. Your Modo coach is there to support you through this process, no need to worry, you'll get the hang of it in no time!

Can I try it first before committing?

YES! and in fact, we encourage it! We offer every new client the opportunity to experience an introductory 30-minute life coaching session. This allows you the opportunity to see what all the excitement is about, and it also gives you and your coach a chance to see if you are a good fit for one another. There's zero obligation to continue after your first session.

Why Choose an Enneagram Coach?

We know that self-awareness is a prerequisite for any personal development, yet our personalities can be complex in how they operate within us, so having a map to help us understand ourselves is crucial. This is where the Enneagram can help. Understanding ourselves through this dynamic system allows us to see things about our personality that are often unconscious, giving us greater awareness and ultimately more choice in how we show up.

The Enneagram gives us an explanation for our inner experiences. What once baffled us starts to make sense through the lens of the Enneagram. Recognizing our patterns allows us to choose different ways of being and doing, allowing us to gain competencies that once felt out of reach. The Enneagram does not box us in to a particular way of being, rather it shows us the box we were already in and shows us the way out.

I can't believe the awareness I have gained

Since Coaching with Tamara, I have had many insights. I have changed more beliefs and behaviours in three months than I have in three years! I just can’t believe the awareness I have gained since meeting Tamara and I am truly grateful for her knowledge, wisdom and the compassion she provides.

Modo Coaching has helped me become a more valuable leader.

As a result of the coaching with Tamara I have been able to become a more valuable leader as she was able to give me tips that were not only specific to my team but also helped me adjust the way I was negotiating my leadership. Tamara focused on what I could change and for me it was how I was addressing managing my team. I feel like a different leader now and these changes have had a major impact on not only my team but my wellbeing. She helped me to not second guess myself but to make actual change that the results I needed. I recommend Modo Coaching regularly to the broader team at my workplace and the feedback is always of a very high level.

I feel ‘lighter’, stronger and more authentic

I have been fortunate to have access to coaching with Modo throughout my time at Lawson Grains. The work I did with Tamara has been life-changing. I have tackled some tough issues that have been a hindrance to me for a long time. I feel ‘lighter’, stronger and more authentic. Tamara was able to provide a safe space for me to be totally vulnerable and accountable and this has been transformative for me personally.

I have found my highest potential!

I was hesitant about coaching, not really knowing the benefits that this process could produce. The experience of being asked questions that I had never been asked before was profound. Through Donna’s skillful facilitation I have found my highest potential. I no longer do mediocre.
