The coaching process
Coaching is tailored to each person’s specific needs. It’s flexible and is arranged on a session by session basis but typically involves:
- A coaching needs assessment
- A series of 1-hour coaching sessions working with you to facilitate the most realistic and practical work-related outcomes. These sessions can be held face to face at a suitable location, or over the telephone or by Skype, Facetime or equivalent.
- Unlimited telephone and email support
- Each coaching relationship is documented in a coaching contract outlining the coaching objectives and services to be provided
- Access to WWC’s Best Practice Guides, and other resources
Coaching typically covers:
- The cancer itself and managing its side effects while working
- Handling initial and continuing conversations with others including your boss, work colleagues, suppliers and clients
- Dealing with changes at work to people, processes, systems, workload etc
- Making and changing ‘reasonable adjustments’
- Social interaction at work and outside work
- Family and financial worries
