At the end of a cycle of classes (usually 10 class, 2 hours each), a coachee feels progress has been made and their confidence in using the language has helped them personally and professionally. Not only is the student proud and relieved to notice this tangible progress, but I as the coach is also overjoyed and extremely proud for the coachee.
Though many coachees have completed 20 hours of coaching, recently, a coachee in India requested a certificate of recognition from me. Being I am in a new culture, and a cross-cultural coach, I understood the cultural importance in India of such a certificate, and agreed to issue him a first personalized certificate.
Going through this process was an amazing experience for me as the coach, and I can only suggest the same of my coachee. I am reprinting the following photos with permission of the coachee. Thanks Hari! I hope I have given you at least half the gift you have given me by allowing me to help you on your path of achieving your goals and dreams!
