ax • on: from Greek axōn, ‘axis’
An axon is part of a brain cell. It is like a long wire, transmitting electricity and connecting one part of the brain to another. The explosive electrical signal that travels down an axon is called an "action potential". The action potential occurs after a period of disequilibrium.
The "axon" in Axon Coaching is a metaphor for the electric potential of change. Especially during periods of disequilibrium or uncertainty, we can harness and optimize this potential. "Axon" also represents our commitment to practical rigor and scientific knowledge, particularly in neuroscience and psychology.
The Flow of an Integral Coaching Program
- Step 1: Initial Interview
We discuss the issue you would like to work on, and I gather information about you and the topic at hand. The initial meeting is complimentary. Fill out the Contact Form to start the process.
- Step 2: Proposal of Purpose and Outcomes
I draft a document that states the Purpose and Outcomes of our work together. If my proposal makes sense to you, I design your development plan. Otherwise, we revise the proposal, or you may decline coaching.
- Step 3: Delivery of Development Plan
During our first coaching conversation, I offer an assessment, and a new way of seeing your situation. I present a development plan designed specifically for you and the topic of focus.
- Step 4: Ongoing support as you engage with your plan
Change happens over time, and there can be both excitement and frustration along the way. We continue to inquire into your situation, and I offer assessments, distinctions, and recommendations where appropriate.
- Step 5: Completion
We review the progress you have made, with a focus on your new competencies. We discuss how you will continue to develop, handle anticipated challenges, and sustain your network of support.
