|3. In subsequent 30-40 minute coaching sessions, each week, biweekly or monthly, you and your coach review the progress toward your vision and goals, explore and resolve the most pressing issues, learn something new, and then agree on a set of goals for the following week. You will enjoy plenty of ah-hah insights along the way.|
|4. By the end of three months, you should reach more than 70% of your three month goals and feel energized and confident to embark on new areas with or without your coach.|
