Executive Coaching with

Questions About Coaching

Q: Isn’t coaching for people who can’t do their job correctly?

A: In our experience, this couldn’t be any further from the truth. Coaching is about building on the success you’ve already had. It’s about continued growth and personal development.


Q: How is my coach selected? I don’t want to be paired with some random person!

A: We hear you! Our process includes a thorough coaching selection process that is driven by you and your unique needs. Under no circumstances will you be forced into a coaching relationship.


Q: How long does this coaching process last?

A:  Executive coaching lasts as long as it is needed for your professional growth. At Academic Impressions, our standard coaching length is 20 coaching sessions over 12 months. However, we can customize a coaching package that works for you.


Q: What if I need extra time to talk to my coach?

A: You can absolutely call your coach between scheduled appointments if you need advice, have a problem, or want to share a success. We strongly encourage you to take advantage of this extra time and you will not be billed for it. Further, you can email as often as you would like.
