Appendix 2. Summary of a first session
What follows is a brief summary of the first session of a coaching assignment. It might have been written by a novice coach, to help them reflect on what happened during the session. The purpose of offering it here is to display the key points, the flow of the discussion and a little content from the discussion. It is not a ‘scripted’ account of the conversation, nor a guide to the ‘perfect’ first session. It simply shows what type of things might be discussed, to provide a good foundation for later coaching conversations. Detailed facts of the discussion are intentionally reduced, to enable us to focus on the key points and general flow.
Coach: Joy Foster
Coachee: Tony Jones
