Frequently Asked Questions
Who are the coaches?
We're bringing you the best of the best. Marengo coaches are all personally interviewed by our founder. We only bring on coaches whom we'd want to work with. Most are also credentialed through the highest calibre programs available:
Goal Setting Pros are credentialed through ICF (International Coach Federation)
Executive Coaches are certified through Columbia University's Executive Coaching program
Can I switch coaches?
We want you to have a transformational experience, and the "fit" you feel with your coach is one of the most important factors. If you ever feel you and your coach aren't the right fit, you can easily and seamlessly transition to working with another coach.
What's the difference between coaching and counseling?
Coaching and counseling are quite different. Where counseling seeks to diagnose a current condition and frequently does so by looking to drivers from the past, coaching focuses on building an action plan to bridge the gap between where you are today and where you want to be tomorrow. A coach will help you clarify your goals and build a plan to reach them.
The sessions - how frequent are they, how long do they last, and what if I need to reschedule?
Whether it's executive coaching or working with a goal setting pro, you'll meet twice a month. Each session is 50 minutes. Of course, you're allowed to reschedule as needed with a 24 hour notice to avoid forfeiting the session.
For strategic advisory, you'll meet twice a month. One session will be 50 minutes, and one will be 90 minutes.
How much does it cost to join?
From Executive Coaching to Strategic Advisory, our corporate engagements range from $3k - $5k/month. We do offer discounted rates for individuals. To learn more, you can reach out to us directly to scope your engagement.
How do I know if I'm ready for coaching?
Whether it's executive coaching or working with a goal setting pro, it's a collaborative process with joint responsibility. To have a successful engagement, here's what you'll do:
In response, your coach/pro will commit to the following:
Communicate openly and honestly
Be ready to create a desired vision for your life
Commit to fully engaging in the process
Take ownership of your goals
Be prepared and present in the moment
Ask direct and thoughtful questions that lead you to deep exploration
Challenge habits, beliefs, and behaviors that do not serve you
Advocate for your desired vision
What about confidentiality?
The conversations you have with your coach are confidential. Your coach may consult with other Marengo coaches on best practices to support your growth without sharing any of your personal information.
Where are your clients and coaches based?
We have coaches on two continents and clients on three continents. Since our coaching is virtual, we're able to work with clients across the globe.
