Each session -- and each manager -- is different. You can choose whatever topic you want to discuss. Your manager coaching session is unique and confidential.

How should I prepare for my coaching session?

Before your session, complete the online CliftonStrengths assessment, read your CliftonStrengths report and reflect on any insights you gain that are related to the goals you want to explore with your coach.

Then, think about your most important goals, opportunities and challenges to help you decide what topics you want to discuss. Consider what you want from coaching and how you will measure your success.

Identifying topics before your session will keep the conversation focused and productive. By preparing ahead of time, you can prioritize the most important points you want to address to make the most out of your session.
