What are my options for recording and transcribing coaching sessions?

Posted on: 08 Nov 2022

Being able to easily record your coaching sessions is essential for your professional development as a coach. Even if you only listen to a session recording while you’re exercising or ironing your clothes, you will learn an immense amount from listening to yourself coach. Similarly, when engaging in mentor coaching, giving your mentor a session recording is the best means of getting specific feedback on your coaching skills. Finally, session recordings together with their written transcripts are an integral part of many coach assessment, accreditation and certification processes.
