During your interactions ,you shall choose the means of communication that suits both of you best (email, phone, sms,...). You will not hesitate to call your learner back if during the coaching process the contact breaks down. BBfoxes are sometimes shy and are afraid to disturb you. Show that you are always there for them. A nice little text to remind them of their appetite for knowledge. "Hello, are you still eager to learn? However, if you would like us to review our schedules, I am available. Contact me."

During the first contact established with a BBfox, remind yourself these few questions in order to know the nature of the request you will have to meet.
Answering these questions with your learner will allow you to prepare yourself mentally, physically and materially.
Value the work done, assess expectations, motivations and slackness and allow for mistakes. Boost them, without being too intrusive. Work on what is required in the present without neglecting what was established at the start. During the transmission, remember to redefine the goals if necessary. You are determined that your work will bear fruit. You will aim for a good result. Although there is no such thing as perfection, you will aim for excellence.
Set achievable goals together as SMART as possible. Make sure it is Specific enough by setting a goal in your method of working. Let that goal be Measurable. Determine how you will see that it is achieved. Make sure the goal is Achievable by setting milestones for example. Be ambitious! However, aiming for a Realistic goal means giving yourself the means to achieve your ambition. Give yourself a deadline in Time by which the result must be achieved.
At BFOX, we are well aware that session cancellation, sometimes the last minute in case of unforeseen circumstances, is possible but leaving your coachee waiting for you is unacceptable. So don't forget to cancel your coaching on BFOX in your calendar so that he/she is warned and notified of your cancellation. Also, don't forget to reimburse your coachee if the coaching didn't take place, so you will avoid a bad evaluation from your coachee (BBfox).
