When Should I do Coaching?
Hi captain Bob, I have really enjoyed your web site and your postings on the PFC board. I have ordered your tapes and video and I am working on getting better at my orals.
My question is I would like to do the coaching because I know it would help and I need to improve my oral score. How does the private coaching work? I live in Washington, do you do it over the phone? If so do you tape the conversation so I can review it or how does that work?
Also, I do not have any orals coming up at the moment so should I do the coaching now and keep on practicing or should I wait until I have an up coming oral to do the coaching?
I ask this because funds are tight and I want to make sure I do it at the appropriate time. Sorry for all the questions, I just don't know how this process works. Thanks for your time and all the great information you continue to supply. Steve

We will record your coaching by phone because of time and distance. Too many candidates wait until the last minute to get coaching. You should plan on a coaching session when you have practiced your script with a tape recorder.
You will use the taped session to improve your presentation. When you're ready, call my Son Rob at 707-869-1330.
