Topic 4 helps WECoaches in understanding what type of support the coachees need at each stage of the coaching relationship, that is, initiation, cultivation, separation, and redefinition stage. In order to do this, the methodology explains the three crucial moments of the coaching relation:

  1. design the coaching sessions,
  2. the implementation phase; and
  3. the evaluation stage



This chapter has provided tools and methods to design the WECAN coaching process. It has gone through the three most relevant phases of a coaching journey which see both the coach and the coachee actively involved.

What is important to understand is that there is no right or wrong journey or process. People are simply different – they have different values, expectations and a good coaching needs to adjust and learn how to cope with different scenarios.

As they get more insight into the particular person, WECoaches have margin to adapt their approach and personalise the journey. A good coach knows that people look at the world through different lenses and understands that there are always different meanings attached to a coaching journey.

Coaching is not just a collection of activities: collecting feedbacks, offering advice and reviewing skills. What makes a woman chose a coaching journey is that she can rely on someone who is a peer and knows and is capable to understand what she is going through. Coaching is about individuals and relationships. Motivation, accountability and real-world practice are the main three ingredients needed that cannot be found in a formal training.

WECoaches need to be able to detect the coachees weaknesses to turn them into strengths. They need to establish a relationship of trust and be attentive to the expectations and requirements of the coachee. Only in this way a coach will anticipate and handle the process.

Regardless of the experience or self-knowledge a coach has, what matter is an open attitude of curiosity and interest, acceptance of what the people really are and a genuine desire to help the coachee (Peterson, 2007)
