To work on for Agenda Setting/Structure in coaching:
  • Identify a topic or issue your coaching client wants to talk about
  • Why is this issue/topic significant?
  • What do you want to come from this coaching session
    • Agenda structure -- planning & returning to the agenda, or not?
    • Checking in on the agenda with the client to redirect or other things that come up
    • Timestamp to check in and review agenda
    • Organized conversations
    • Guidelines & bumpers do not need to restrictive
