Continual Refinement & Improvement
This brings us to Step 5 of Individual Design Coaching: evaluation. To recap, here are the steps we’ve gone through so far:
In Step 5, we see that the whole process is cyclical and continual. In Step 5, we return to all the previous steps.
- We repeat the consultation on a monthly basis. This allows us to reconnect to your goals and priorities, to discuss habits and behaviors, to address whatever new information has come into the story.
- We repeat the assessment on a monthly basis, or at least the most important parts of the assessment. If you’re not concerned about body composition, then there’s no need to repeat that part. However, if you’re really intent on getting a faster 5k run time–and that was one of the things we assessed initially–then retesting that benchmark frequently is important.
- We re-evaluate and refine your program. Based on the successes and challenges you’ve encountered in your program so far, we’ll need to make adjustments. Based on any changes in your goals or priorities, we’ll need to make adjustments. Based on the results of our repeated assessments, we’ll need to make adjustments. The program is changing and developing all the time, but the goal is to always be making improvements and getting better results.
So, this is where the coaching comes in. A coach’s job is not to teach you how to be like them; a coach’s job is to help you be a better version of yourself. Therefore, Step 5 isn’t so much a “step” as it is a continual process of making things better. We’re making your program better suited to you and what you want to achieve. We’re creating a program that fits so seamlessly into your life that it becomes natural and almost-effortless to do the work. And, at the same time, we’re increasing the level of challenge incrementally so that you continue to make progress towards your goals.
