1 on 1 Coaching Information & FAQs

How do I schedule my coaching session with my coach or instructor?

After you purchase your coaching session, log in and go to your Dashboard and launch the coaching session "course." Within the course will be a single activity for you to launch that will connect you to your coach's calendar.  You can review the available dates and times and select a slot that works best for you.  Follow the coach's instructions, which usually asks you to provide your name and contact information so your coach can contact you at your selected date and time.

How does my 1:1 personal coaching session take place?

Depending on your available technology, your 1:1 coaching session can take place through Zoom video conferencing and/or by phone.   

Is there a limit to the types of things we can discuss?

Yes. While there is a great deal of freedom in the discussions you can have and the questions you can ask, your coach will not discuss or disclose: any information that is secret or confidential; anything that could jeopardize or affect national security; anything that would reveal sensitive information or tactics or otherwise put personnel or units at risk; or anything that would violate the rules or standards of the various military schools or programs, etc.  He/she also will not discuss any criminal or otherwise unlawful activities.  Your coach will decline to discuss or answer any specific questions in his/her own sole discretion, and you must accept and respect that decision. If you fail to do so, it can result in early termination of the coaching / training session without refund.
