You may ask what a coaching model is. A coaching model is the way Janice works with her clients. My model is simple and I use it whether I am working one-on-one with a private client, with a group of individuals who are in a coaching group or a MasterMind, I also use this model when I am training, and when I am giving a keynote address to an audience. The consistency in my model is very important to the clarity it brings the client in that the process within the model is a stepped progression of success built on solid foundational principles. My GOAL in this model is to find out where you are today, partner with you to get you what you want, celebrate every success no matter how small and for you to be WHOLE again.

The coaching model is: AWARNESS > GROWTH > FREEDOM. I will explain each part of the model for you so you know what to expect when you work with me. Within this model are eleven [11] specific steps which I use.

The eleven steps are:

Research
“How can I help move this person to wholeness?”
Affirm
Knowledge
Affirm
Process
Affirm
Application
Affirm
Release to THRIVE!
Affirm

Below is how each of these steps in the process is and how each works in any given situation.

Research – Any good coach, mentor, counselor, therapist etc. does an enormous amount of research long before the client, mentee, patient or customer comes into their world. This is what gives them credibility, a credential, a title, and the authority to be in the business they are in.

“How can I help move this person to wholeness?” – This phrase/question is the outcome or goal for the person who is helping their customer. No professional wants to knowingly “hurt” their client; they want to see them made whole when their time together is finished. The methods used may vary slightly but the end goal is the same.

Affirm – This is a key missing piece of many programs. Every person on earth values a pat on the back, a well done, you’re getting there, a verbal hug, that series of words which affirms them and tells them they are on track and making progress. When I do this with my private one-on-one clients, I make sure that they take in the affirmation and do not deflect, or brush it off. There is a very famous quote I will repeat here again: “A person cannot give what they do not have/possess.” In a nutshell this means, if the person is not affirmed and they continue to be drained by whatever their station in life is, eventually they will be empty and have nothing left to hand out

Knowledge – When embarking on any project, course of action, or change in behavior a person, team, or company/organization must know where they are at the starting point in the process. This takes the form of an assessment, assessing the behaviors, outcomes and previous steps taken and the results of those actions. When I work with clients, I call this the 36,000 foot view of their lives. One cannot know where they are going until they know where they are at the start.

Process – When the client gets to this part in the process, I come along beside and become their partner in helping them to formulate their plan, the steps they will want to take in order to reach their desired outcome. What I know is that the client actually knows what to do; however, it is buried so deep they do not have access to that information. My precisely place perfect questions help to bring out the answers and that in turn stimulates the client into accessing more ideas, gets the momentum going and the proverbial light bulb goes off on their face.

Application – Like anything in life there will be days when, there will be bumps in the road, crises, unforeseen problems, disappointments, family issues, and many other items where I as their coach come in a “COACH” these gaps. My job is to continue to hold the person accountable for the previous action step they have put in place and determine what went right, or what derailed their momentum. During this part of the road to “wholeness”, I know from my years of coaching, mentoring and training, this part –APPLICATION- can take the longest. The speed at which a client achieves wholeness and their desired outcome is 100% their responsibility.

Release to THRIVE! This is a most important moment. When the goal is achieved, wholeness is complete. A celebration is in order. I like to think of this as the moment a client actually feels FREEDOM! The burden is now gone and they know how to set a course of action to tackle the next thing that may spring up in their life professionally and personally. Again, I know from personal interactions with thousands of people, this process takes about one year. It can take less, if the individual is highly motivated, disciplined and focused, but my experience is that these folks aren’t looking for this type of program.

In my coaching business Janice Bastani Coaching, I have a three step process where these eleven [11] specific steps are incorporated. That process is called:

AWARENESS > GROWTH>FREEDOM

I will break down where each of the 11 steps fit in this coaching process:

AWARNESS > GROWTH > FREEDOM

AWARENESS

AWARENESS in this first diagnostic of my client’s journey to wholeness this first step is like a “dance”. We get to know each other, I ask how far I can push you, and we have our discovery process of where you are in these first sessions of our relationship. This may include one or more assessments.

Research
“How can I help move this person to wholeness?” These issues happened long before we meet.
Affirm
Knowledge
Affirm

AWARNESS > GROWTH > FREEDOM

GROWTH

GROWTH – In this second phase of the client’s journey to wholeness we become partners in the process. The client orchestrates a plan of action and the dates when those actions will be completed and I hold the client accountable for those commitments and promises. Each week when the client and I meet, there will be times when the plan takes a detour or a hit, I then step in to coach the gaps in the forward momentum in order to get the client back on track.

Process
Affirm
Application
Affirm

AWARNESS > GROWTH > FREEDOM

FREEDOM

FREEDOM – In phase three, the client can clearly see the light shining on the dream, outcome, goal and I see “WHOLENESS”. The client’s countenance is so much more positive, their body language is so different that in phase one in the discovery process. The client who reaches this point has a renewed sense of purpose, determination, vigor and positive outlook on whatever comes their way tomorrow. It is my favorite time in my coaching relationship with my clients. I is a lot like sending those little birds to fly and then soar out of the nest.

Release to THRIVE!

A note from Janice about what you have just read above:

“I do not know of many coaches who would put their “process and or model” in print to such detail. Here’s what I know from being a “Mentor Coach” for an accredited coaching school, most coaches do not have a well-defined coaching model and process. By spelling this out for you, you now know exactly what to expect when you work with me. Another coach my steal my model and or process but it will yield little in the way of results because this whole coaching client relationship is about my years of experience, over 20,000 hours of CCEU’s and continual learning, my ability to ask the perfect question at the right time, how I hold you accountable, our relationship and your ability to be transparent, truthful, and accountable to your main objective. “

This is a very bold statement and few if any will ever make it.

All clients sign a binding coaching agreement contract for a period of 1 year. A 30-Day full refund will be given no questions asked to any client who feels after their first couple of sessions this isn’t for them or we are not a good fit. After 30 days the money-back guarantee is no longer valid.

You the client, are solely responsible for the decisions that you make and the consequences [whether good or bad] those decisions have in your life. We make no promise of monetary gain; you are solely responsible for your finances.

What is it worth to you to be whole again? You see this is the point isn’t it? We each want to achieve something, gain something, to balance some part of our life and we just can’t seem to figure out how to do that. That’s where I come in.

One of my mentors said something that has always stuck with me and I tell my clients this all the time:

Here are some more reasons to QUIT what you are doing right now and work with me as your coach:

(1) Quit something you don’t do well to start something you do well.

(2) Quit something you’re not passionate about to do something that fills you with passion.

(3) Quit something that doesn’t make a difference to do something that does.

My Coaching Offerings:

Group Coaching – This consists of from 5 to 20 individuals who are in a similar situation such as in a business, team, or corporation and need group coaching to get them to the next level or to solve challenges with the “group” context.

This coaching engagement is $500.00 per month or $6,000.00 for one year. This does not include any assessments, products or other support materials that may be needed during that one year period.

Group Off-site Programs – These programs are custom made for you or for your company and the price will vary depending on what your goal is for the Off-Site. This may include items such as an assessment which is Germaine to your challenge, team building programs and exercises, communication skill improvement, role-play, visioning and many more.

The base price for my expertise is $5,000 a day plus travel, meals, and other transportation needs. Program materials are extra for each Off-site.

Keynote Addresses – The fee for speaking is a flat $5,000 per address, plus travel expenses, meals, and car rental if needed. Any program handouts are an additional cost which will be billed to the individual or business or group hiring for the keynote.

Intensive Weekend – This program is designed for the client who is looking for the intensive mentoring or coaching over the course of one weekend. The price would include the cost of the travel, transportation, meals, materials and any supplement items for the weekend. The cost of the actual location would be paid by the person or organization doing the hiring of my services. Intensive weekend cost is: $10,000

1:1 Individual Coaching/Mentoring – This is deepest coaching or mentoring relationship with me as your guide. This engagement is for 1 full year as stated above. There is a 100% money back refund should you find within the first 30 days we are not a good fit, no questions asked. You will have 4 [four] one hour coaching sessions per month. If you work better every other week that is welcome and the rate is the same. You have unlimited email coaching and follow-up and accountability check-ins with me as your coach or mentor. You will be given an assessment based on what your goal or reason is for hiring me as your mentor or coach. This assessment and debrief are included in your yearly engagement price. [An assessment can run upwards of $600/per assessment and the debrief rate is $250/hour.] I have many clients who reside in countries outside of the United States and we utilize, SKYPE, and FaceTime during our coaching calls. If you are fortunate enough to live in the bay area in Northern California, you are welcome to have your coaching or mentoring sessions in my home office. The Individual 1:1 Coaching/Mentoring rate is $3,200/month or $42,000/year.

A word about fees and what you can expect as my client. There are tens of thousands of individuals in the world who claim to be “coaches/mentors”, the truth is according to the International Coach Federation the leading global organization for coaches, with more than 20,000 members and 10,000 credentialed coaches in more than 100 countries worldwide in 2012. Now what does that say about how many people are “claiming” to be a coach who have had no formal training, credentialing, testing – both written and oral, and have attended an accredited coaching school or university? What is the Average coach salary according to Sherpa:

Executive Coaches make $325 per hour
Business Coaches make $235 per hour
Life Coaches make $160 per hour

These are averages and include the “base” knowledge from a coaching school and no additional training or certifications. Just because a person wants to be a coach and has experience in one particular area of business or life and hangs out their shingle does not make them a qualified person to coach you or your team or business. Buyer beware here.

Janice and I were sitting just behind each other at a conference...

Janice and I were sitting just behind each other at a conference and the speaker challenged us to turn around and work with the person directly behind us and Janice turned around. What luck!! One year later we met again at the same conference and I hired her on the spot. She asked me if I had achieved what we had discussed the previous year and sadly I said “NO”. After just one month, I was back on track to what had been a rough transition from the corporate world into semi-retirement. I wonder if she will be at the conference next year.
