Linda Raudenbush, Ph.D., PCC.
Coaching Philosophy and Methods
Linda’s view is that coaching is a process-based experience. She partners with her client to facilitate positive change, which results in new attitudes, knowledge, skills, behaviors, ways of being and doing. She coaches her clients to examine themselves and their worlds from expanded holistic perspectives including: intellectual, emotional, physical, and spiritual. Her primary approach is through in-person and/or telephone conversations during which my clients transform their views of themselves and their environments, and how they show up, interact, and relate. This is accomplished by using a variety of methods, including: questioning, listening, data collection and analysis, feedback, self-observations, action learning, developmental tools and assessments such as: Myers Briggs Type Indicator for increased intra-personal discoveries and 360 degree surveys for increased inter-personal awareness.
Coaching Standards and Practices
As a member of International Coach Federation, I am aligned with their core purpose to advance the art, science and practice of professional coaching, while adhering to the ICF code of Ethics and Standards (www.coachfederation.org) including confidentiality. My core competencies of Setting the Foundation for Coaching, Co-Creating the Coaching Relationship, Communicating Effectively, and Facilitating Learning and Results are certified by ICF at the PCC level. I continually refresh and advance my competencies by learning from ICF approved courses, programs and activities. Each coaching relationship is unique and customized to meet the special situations of each client. The following critical elements are present in all of my coaching engagements:
Data based –collection / use of objective information from my client and the organization to better understand reality and set measureable goals.
Goal driven for success – analyze the data with my client to determine the best objectives for creating the desired outcomes leading to personal and organizational success.
Action Planning for Growth and Development – during the coaching process, my client mindfully plans and executes specific actions to meet identified goals; we jointly measure successful progress and make changes as needed, calling upon available resources and support.
Sustained Learning and Development – near the end of the coaching process, my client plans for future goal setting and life-long learning to meet unforeseen challenges yet to come by reflecting on new ways of being and doing.
