Coaching Questions (FAQ)
What should I look for in a coach?
Do your due diligence and take the time to research your coach. Read their biography, spend time on their website and look for reviews. Additionally, find out about their coaching certification and experience to help assure you are making an informed decision. But ultimately, find a coach that resonates with you since the two of you will be spending time together.
What are the benefits of coaching?
Coaching has the ability to motivate a person to see where valuable changes can be made in their life. A coach is the change agent that assists clients in seeing things that have previously been hidden. This difference results in greater success and happiness.

What makes a person a candidate for executive coaching?
Executive coaching clients can work for themselves or work for a company. They typically are in supervision and leadership positions. At Edge Coaching, we have worked with a range of executive clients from young emerging leaders to senior staff.
Individuals either self-select or are referred by their company to begin the six month executive coaching process.
Executive coaching clients see the coaching process as a valuable resource that provides them new tools and a confidential sounding board to increase their success and competency.
Who uses personal coaching?
For personal coaching, we see a wide variety of clients. Examples include college students and recent graduates looking for direction, working professionals who are dealing with issues at home or at their job, men and women seeking healthier relationships, and individuals preparing for a career change or retirement. Anything standing in the way of a person’s happiness and success are topics for coaching!
Do you work with clients outside of North Carolina?
Absolutely. Phone sessions are available for clients living in the United States and Canada. Additionally, Michelle Ellwanger travels to facilitate corporate retreats, give speaking presentations and provide coaching certification workshops.
Do you offer single coaching sessions?
We do not offer single coaching sessions. Coaching is about developing a relationship to facilitate the process of change and growth. This requires time which is why we ask our clients to commit to the coaching process.
Do you provide employee coaching?
We do work for companies needing employee coaching. For employee coaching to be successful, we ask three questions suggested by executive coach Marshall Goldsmith:
1) Is the change the company is looking for behavioral? If the change needed is ethical or intellectual, coaching will not work.
2) Is the employee willing to change? If the employee does not see a reason to change and does not care, change is less likely to occur and coaching results will be compromised.
3) Is the company willing to give the employee a fair chance? If coaching is only being used as a formality and the company already plans on terminating the employee, then coaching is not being used for its intended purpose.
If yes is the answer to all three above questions, employee coaching can be highly successful. Feel free to give us a call to discuss your needs.
Explain the difference between coaching and counseling?
Coaching is about setting and achieving goals in the present moment. It is what functional driven individuals use to be more successful.
Counseling is about healing the past. It typically uses a diagnosis and treats a mental health concern like depression or personality disorders.
If a coach determines a client has counseling needs, they will discuss this with the client and then refer for appropriate counseling based services.
