The experience

Partnership aligned to your strengths from the comfort of home or work

Lookout Coaching serves clients seeking workplace performance, career, and emerging leader coaching. The coaching journey provides a judgement-free forum to discover inner potential, challenge assumptions of oneself, and act to transform. Clients include any professional looking to evolve some aspect of individual presence and effect.

Clients arrive at each session with a topic to explore, which the coach guides via focused and powerful questions. Clients explore and examine ideas identified and conclusions reached via reflection and "homework" in the period between sessions. Successful clients are excited to put in the work required to realize the changes they seek.

The process

Structure for your topical focus

Lookout Coaching offers clients a 10-session package to explore their topic, develop goals and strategies, and have sufficient time to work on and learn from their discoveries. Each session is 1 hour in length and generally scheduled every 2-3 weeks. All sessions use Zoom so clients can confidentially discuss their topic from a private location most comfortable to them.Clients will be offered "homework" in the form of activities, reflection, and learning following each session. Homework provides clients opportunities to internalize their session experiences, try out and evaluate their ideas, and to hold themselves accountable to their commitments.Individuals ready to begin coaching will receive a coaching agreement and session scheduling information. Payment is required in full prior to the first session (major credit cards and ACH accepted). Scott offers a 10% discount to all public servants and special rates for enrolled college students and recent graduates. He is only accepting a limited number of new clients for select evening and weekend sessions at this time.Scott also offers a complimentary 30-minute consult and Q&A session for anyone still deciding if they're ready for coaching.

The commitment

Powerful questions --> Self discovery --> Endless opportunity

Trust <--> Partnership

Coaching is a partnership that you drive. That's right, a coach can't make you change or do anything different. Instead, coaches guide clients via powerful questions that stoke their curiosity to support deeper understanding and consideration of challenges faced and opportunities ahead. Clients are accountable only to themselves, and they must have the mindset, willingness, and dedication to follow through on their discoveries.Coaching isn't therapy, consulting, or mentoring, though it harnesses the spirit of self reflection and connection among humans. Clients will find the most value from a coaching relationship when they've made the decision to invest in their individual development and transformation, meaning they want to be present and are committed to acting on their vision.An effective coaching partnership must exist upon an ethical foundation of professionalism, trust, and confidentiality. As a member of the International Coaching Federation, Scott is committed to practicing and upholding the organization's values and demonstrating his pledge to its ethical expectations.Whether you're ready to begin your coaching journey or are just trying to understand what's out there, clients should explore ICF's resources to understand all that coaching partnerships offer to find the coach and style that works best for them. Scott commits to being respectful, present, upfront, and genuine in client partnerships.
