What Is Kathy’s Hourly Charge For Services?
There are no hourly charges. There is one cost we negotiate upfront. Factors considered:
- Your budget
- Type of relationship that works for your change – coach (achieve specific goals) or trusted adviser (in-the-moment insights and recommendations)
- Time – how frequently we decide to meet. If coaching, we typically meet more often to monitor progress and course-correct.
- How long for the coaching – shortest time is typically one month and longest is four months. After four months we would typically evaluate a maintenance program going forward.
