As I see it, using subjective benchmarks to measure personal change and development is not enough.
For this reason, we will keep a journal during our time together to measure and evaluate your progress using a subjective and objective measurement. A well-known and recognised component to measure is the heart rate variability (HRV). The HRV indicates how much the heart rate varies within a certain time frame. A lower and more stable variability – whether in sleep or in a previous, stressful meeting – designates internal coherence and is a key indicator of resiliency and flexibility and can assist in enabling you to adapt effectively to stress and situational demands.
In addition to a subjective assessment of the success of your coaching, the regular monitoring of your HVR will provide an undistorted, objective reference point.
