So many people ask me how coaching can be better than face=to face. Ultimately, it is what makes the client most comfortable that determines if online coaching is an option.
Here are some of the benefits:
Online coaching eliminates geographical boundaries.
It is much more flexible because as long as both parties have access to a telephone, coaching can take place anywhere.
There can be benefit for both the client and the coach in a face-to-face session. They are able to read each others body language and nuances that only happen in person are not lost.
