Even though this is where it all begins, I have left this section to the end because I felt it was important to separate the initial stages of coaching from everything else.
The MasterMind Matrix is built upon the foundational principles of life coaching, which are of critical importance as you work your way through this chart.
For this reason, the first few segments of the MasterMind Matrix break-down the coaching process in detail — helping both coach and client to pinpoint the obstacles and challenges that lay ahead.
During the first life coaching session it’s important to provide your clients with a little background information about the life coaching process. You could therefore outline the purpose of coaching, while also going through the different roles and expectation associated with coaching.
In addition to this, it’s important to identify any barriers that may interfere with the coaching process. And last, but certainly not least, it’s also important to take the time to establish strong levels of rapport with the client.
