"Having a phone coaching relationship has given me the opportunity to have an uninterrupted schedule of coaching despite my business travel. Even when in my hometown, I don’t have to travel to my coach’s office, so phone coaching is a greener alternative. I’ve been in many different spaces when being coached and been able to see what works best for me – for example, I’ve learned that it helps me if I have a view during coaching sessions. As an administrator in a large organization, much of my contact with colleagues is by phone, so it is a form of communication that I am comfortable with. I appreciate the way phone conversations reduce distractions related to appearance and body language. As a highly visual person, I need to minimize visual stimuli in order to focus on higher order thinking. All these factors help to make phone coaching a good fit for my personality. I would encourage people who haven’t experienced life coaching on the phone to give it a try."
