It has long, especially in the English-speaking world and gradually in the Spanish market, it is introducing the coaching a distancia, especially using methods such as Skype which gives a perfect sound quality.
Most people have computers with ADSL line or smartphones which have a call free of charge via the Internet. Using a microphone and also with or without camera we can have a coaching session with extreme quality distance and displacement sparing.
Although this method has many advantages and I dare say that no disadvantage, many people have reservations about hiring a coach with this modality.
Here I show the 7 Main advantages Coaching por Skype:
1. Travelling time is the main advantage as there is no need to worry about the time of displacement especially in large cities.
2. We must not limit our region coaches, but we can have a big name coach international whatever our location.
3. If we're the ones who almost always we travel because of our work, not be a drawback because with a 3G phone or from our hotel with a laptop, we can have an excellent session.
3. Skype ace free from anywhere in the world as the quality of its almost perfect sound.
4. The predisposition showing people in a Skype session is usually even better than in a classroom because the person does not feel observed and can be totally focused on your topic, not only mentally but emotionally, which favors fluidity much of the session.
5. The coaching distance also allows a extreme privacy because even with a coach every process is confidential, there are people who prefer to remain anonymous because they are public figures or have a very important position in any company.
6. Coaches usually offer extended hours for their sessions when distance because they have that do not have to move.
7. Sessions coaching a distancia, generally, usually much more effective while regarding the face, ya que la concentración en la sesión es casi instantánea desde el minuto 0.
As you can see remote sessions offer many advantages over the modality, although in this case the coach must have a specific training in this methodology.
