a)plan coaching

At a)plan, our mission is to help you be the best version of yourself. We bring life, career, and accountability coaches to Chicago through virtual coaching and our Chicago-based coaches.

How does a)plan deliver life coaching to Chicago?

Our life coaches are located all over the US, and some are specifically based in Chicago, IL, like our very own Erica L. Harris. At the beginning of an engagement, a)plan users select their own coach from our roster of nearly 50 life coaches. Users are welcome to choose a coach in the same timezone or general area, like Chicago. However, for most a)plan users, the location of their coach has little impact on the quality of the experience.

Why is virtual coaching better than in-person coaching?

Virtual life coaching affords a)plan users a number of benefits that they wouldn’t get through in-person coaching. With virtual coaching, users enjoy extra convenience, as they aren’t forced to waste time or money commuting to their coaching sessions. Just as importantly, virtual coaching provides for a deeper coaching experience, because it creates easier access to your coach. With unlimited texting access and a coaching app to support the coaching experience, a)plan users can get in contact with their coaches whenever they need.

How do clients meet with coaches?

Clients meet with our coaches through the a)plan app, which offers text, audio, and video communication channels. For those living in the area, our Chicago-based life coaches are also able to meet in-person. Our coaches are flexible, and no matter how you meet, we strongly encourage the use of our app to get the best experience.

How does a)plan define life coaching vs. accountability coaching vs. career coaching?

Not all coaching is the same. People talk about life coaching, career coaching, accountability coaching, DEI coaching, and more. At a)plan, we believe these many different genres of coaching should not be separated. What many believe they are looking for in “life coaching” or “accountability coaching,” they typically discover through a)plan’s “whole-person coaching” approach.

What sets a)plan apart from other life coaching solutions?

We are proud of our deep and diverse roster of coaches who utilize a consistent, time-tested method. Drawing inspiration and advice from the best coaches in the world, we created a simple, accessible, and highly effective method, supported by our coaching app. Our method is proven to unlock the best in individuals, no matter their situation or location (which is how we are able to bring life coaching to so many cities, including Chicago).

How expensive is coaching with a)plan?

Our pricing undercuts much of the competition, especially when factoring in the quality and experience of our coaching staff. For $500/month, a)plan users experience our powerful launch exercises, weekly coaching sessions, plus unlimited texting and app usage. For comparison, Harvard Business Review notes that executive coaches charge an average of $500 per hour (not per month), with the range extending as high as $3,500 per hour!
