Individual Coachings for effective change
Learn more about how individual Coachings can support you and your team in reaching your goals.
Why individual Coachings are the best approach for change
Most of us know: Change starts in our heads.
But who knows what's happening inside our head?
Only we ourselves. That's why a 1:1 Coaching is often times the best way to successfully shape change.
Experience for yourself how effective it can be to:
- Prioritize your plans,
- thoroughly check them from head to heart,
- underpin them with specific action steps,
- and carry them out consistently.
How a typical Coaching process with 3A looks like:
1. The Ask in an individual Coaching
In the Ask stage it's all about capturing the right questions in order to focus on the right core issues and goals. In a 1:1 Coaching that means to honestly identify and Adress the key challenges. Only once it's clear that the right Asks have been prioritized it's time for analysis and to develop ideas for improvement.
2. The Approach in an individual Coaching
The second step is all about finding the right approach to reach the goal that is connected to the Ask from step 1. The goal is usually a milestone and not a final result. Change should be established as a continuous process and not a sequence of one-time projects.
In a 1:1 Coaching I emphasize that finding solutions needs to be practical. This might imply to work them out "on the job".
3. Taking Action in an individual Coaching
Many people struggle when it comes to taking action. That's understandable as it means to overcome inertia or to replace old patterns of behavior with new ones or even both. Nevertheless, it's worth doing so as nothing gets a feedback loop up and running as taking action. Taking action generates feedback. Whether it's from leaders, co-workers, customers, suppliers or from me as a Coach.
What's the effect of an individual Coaching with 3A?
Feedback loops in increase
Willingness to change emerges
Skills can be deployed more easily
Improvement becomes visible
Or for those of you who prefer a formula:
Effective Improvment = Feedback + Willingness to Change + Skills

Questions about 1:1 Coachings with 3A
For private clients
Since I started 3A Coaching I have conducted several 1:1 coachings in companies. A large project with a strong individual coaching element has been the Next Generation Sales project at Dt. Telekom - find out more about it in the Case-Studies section.
(Almost) everybody from leaders to subject matter experts benefits from 1:1 Coachings.
Individual coaching is the method per se in order to optimally design personal experiences and professional business demands. Doing so evidently increases Job satisfaction as well as achieved results.
Important note: A coaching process can provide several proven advantages regarding change and progress on the personal level. However, a coaching process cannot improve or professionally organize processes, ways of working or workload in the business organization itself. That is and remains part of the core management task that should not be unloaded onto a coaching assignment.
Depending on the core problem a professional team coaching or management consulting can help.
Corporate clients have the option to buy an individual coaching retainer that allows a defined group of people to call off coaching sessions on demand. This approach allows for maximum flexibility for companies and participants of the coaching program.
3A offers individual coachings, team coachings and an in-house coaching program.
All information on the 1:1 Coaching offers can be found on this sub-page.
If other 3A-service offerings appeal to you then check out the offer on team coachings as well as the training program
EFFECTIVE COACHING for organizations.
In most cases it's the Coachee who provides the content for the Coaching. The Coach commits to 100% confidentiality regarding topics covered in the Coaching.
As a corporate client it can make sense to describe the Coaching intent more clearly, e.g. Coaching in sales or 1:1 Coaching as part of leadership development.

My coachings are based on effective methods that are all grounded on solid knowledge and the 3A approach based on Ask - Approach - Apply. In addition I benefit from my time as a full-time management consultant for large and midsize companies.
So it's not about any mumbo jumbo but about proven cause-effect relationships and goal-oriented progress.
To accomplish this I mostly use tools and methods from:
Emotion Coaching with the compass of needs®
Field work/ On the job coaching
A 1:1 coaching takes place between Coach and Coachee (two people), while a Workshop takes place between Coach/Trainer and a group of people or a team.
Whether an individual Coaching or a Workshop are the better option depends on the initial Ask.
As a rule of thumb:
If an individual is struggling within a well-functioning team then a 1:1 Coaching is the better starting point.
If a team is broadly having difficulty then a team coaching is the better starting point.
Generally speaking coaching is (almost) always a good thing. Especially when you have a lot of topics running through your head that you can't solve by yourself so far and where a sparring partner on your side might help. Typical situations that can lead to the start of a coaching process can be business related (new leadership role, promotion, role change etc.) or non-business related (challenging environment, crisis, emotional roadblock etc.).
And don't forget: A coaching only makes sense based on a strong relationship between you and your coach. Only then get both sides fully engage in the coaching process.
I typically offer an introduction call and one individually bookable coaching session to start so that you have a sound base to decide if you'd like to continue with a full coaching process.
For private clients a typical coaching process consists of four coaching sessions as the smallest option up to coaching support for years. For longer coaching support, we can flexibly set the intervals (e.g. monthly or quarterly).
For private clients I offer three coaching packages:
- Package light: Contains intro call and closing call + two coaching sessions for €450 plus VAT.
- Package M: Contains intro call and closing call + four coaching sessions for €850 plus VAT.
- Package L: Contains intro and closing call + seven coaching sessions for €1,400 plus VAT.
As an alternative to the Package optoons or to continue a coaching process following a coaching package, I offer flexible coaching hours on a needed basis for €150 plus VAT.
An average coaching process for private clients includes 12 sessions during a period of one year.
My shortest Coaching process finished after 20min in the intro call and my longest coaching process is going on for several years now.
Depending on circumstances I might favor the face to face option or the online Coaching. In the end I usually follow your personal preferences.
I additionally offer a "Coaching in the mountains" option - a very special opportunity to work on your own topics supported by the power and fascination of mother nature. If you are interested in it, send me a message to firstname.lastname@example.org
Yes, of course it is possible to cancel any time. A different scenario is that you would like to pause the coaching process for some time.
Despite the fact that both options do not happen very often in practice, feel free to share your thoughts and we'll find a solution.
Coaching is about growth and solving problems together. To do so an element of joy is helpful. Any coaching obligation would run counter to this idea and is therefore not part of my offering. I would also never ask private clients for payment in advance to make sure you are at no point in time at risk of losing money.
As a basic structure I use the 3A approach: Ask - Approach - Apply. Regarding processes and tools I use elements from:
- Systemic Coaching
- Emotion Coaching with the compass of needs®
- Field work/ On the job coaching
- Inner Game & inner drivers
My 1:1 Coachings are very customized and not a "standard product". A person's combination of strengths and weaknesses differs from the next person so it's all about jointly discovering and solving your topics.
Whether your topics originate in the workplace or at home, whether they are related to a skill or an interpersonal conflict, dysfunctional self-talk or anything else - what counts is how to deal with them and to find the best way forward. On top of the individual note of each coaching process I have a couple of default topics at my disposal to support the coaching.
I'm a big fan of thirty minute pre-call to go through all important details ahead of the first session. This is all about getting to know each other and getting an idea of your relevant topics and expectations.
For more pre-information about me visit the About3A page.
I use the same basic set up for individual coaching for private clients and for business coachings.
Often times the initial Ask in private coachings is connected to a personal topic. However, it's also possible to discuss business topics with private clients, e.g. if an employer does not agree to pay for a coaching or if you don't like this option.
