What is Coaching?

Coaching is a professional relationship designed mutually between the client and the coach that helps the client produce extraordinary results in his or her personal and professional life.

How is coaching different from therapy?

The Canadian Oxford Dictionary’s definition explains it quite succinctly this way: Therapy is “the treatment of a physical or mental disorder other than by surgery.” Life Coaching is “professional guidance on how to attain one’s social, work-related, or personal goals.”

What is the time commitment?

At Newroad we ask clients for a minimum three month commitment. That involves one 90 minute discovery session and  eight 45 minute telephone sessions with their coach every week.

Can I cancel the coaching program at any time?

Yes. At any time the client can end the process if he or she doesn’t feel that it is a good fit for their needs. It is important for each Newroad client to be excited and fulfilled by the coaching. If that is not the case we will gladly assist people in finding another process and or another coach.

Do you coach couples?

Newroad specializes in one-on-one coaching. Many clients discuss their relationship concerns and dreams in the coaching sessions. Newroad will work with our clients and their spouses or partners if the need arises.

Do you coach any clients face to face?

All of Newroad’s one-on-one coaching is conducted over the telephone. We have found that this approach best serves our clients. Telephone coaching is efficient and cost effective. Many of our clients travel for business and telephone coaching allows them to work and or live anywhere in the world and still connect with their coach.
