  1. A 30-60 minute call to discuss your situation (phone or Skype). We will drive to understand exactly what is going on, what you are struggling with and figure out how coaching on influence could help you.
  2. Outline schedule of how we think we can help you within 48 hours. Following the call, we will consider the different elements of influence coaching which we think will be most beneficial to help you to overcome the challenges you face.
  3. Agreement to proceed. Here we will clarify what you can expect, and what we expect in return. After this stage we are both committed to making it happen.
  4. Deliver Resources. Depending on what we think will work best, we will post you hardcopy materials to support your learning and develoment. In addition, we usually recommend various diagnostics and resources on our website.
  5. Influence Coaching. Sessions (either face-to-face, telephone or Skype) are set up based on the suggested sequence of topics, and timed to suit your needs and circumstances.
