Coaching and Facilitation

In Person & Remote

Cancellation Policy for Antonia Milkop Coaching & Facilitation

Coaching Sessions

Coaching sessions can be rescheduled by either the coachee or the coach with 48 hours’ notice. If scheduled appointments are cancelled with less than 48 hours prior notice, a cancellation fee of $100 or a forfeit of the coaching session together.

If you are unwell or symptomatic, please do not come to your coaching session. We are happy to reschedule your appointment or conduct the coaching session via Zoom (if you are well enough, or postpone to an alternative date if you are feeling sick).


If in-person events are cancelled due to any Public Health restrictions (e.g. participants having to self-isolate), which limits our ability to meet in-person, we will pivot these sessions to either fully go online or hybrid the people in (if the appropriate technology exists at the venue).  

For full-online events, we will adjust the schedule accordingly (e.g., for a 3-hr workshop, this will be facilitated as two 1.5hr Zoom workshops, with a short break in between). You may like to read about what other clients have said about Antonia’s style of virtual delivery.

No refunds will be available for in-person workshops cancelled due to a client’s personal discretion. If Antonia is unwell or having to self-isolate due to Covid/being symptomatic, then options are to postpone our session or pivot to virtual.

Covid-19 Policy

Antonia Milkop will continue to deliver in-person coaching sessions and workshops wherever possible and follow the Public Health measures. Below are my practice guidelines under the current Covid-19 setting to ensure we follow guidelines and keep our community safe:

  • Please only attend coaching sessions and in-person workshops if you are symptom-free. Stay home if unwell.  
  • Please let us know of cancellations as soon as possible (see Cancellation Policy above).

Virtual options (in the case of participants needing to self-isolate and/any in-person gathering restrictions)

  • I am here to support you by providing a safe environment. All programs are tailored to you and your team and can be achieved virtually or in the office.  
  • If you are not comfortable attending in-person events or are unable to do so (due to any new Public Health restrictions), I will pivot delivery online as I believe in ‘continuing’ rather than postponing progress on achieving your goals. See my website for more information on ‘in-person vs. virtual’ gatherings and a helpful blog on ‘how to adapt to virtual’. 

On a cheerier note, we’ve got this New Zealand!  

Kia kaha, Kia māia, Kia manawanui.  Be strong, be brave, be steadfast.

{Antonia has made me a better manager and person. Being able to understand my strengths (and weaknesses) and when to lean in to use them for my advantage more, whether for work or personally, has been so beneficial to me and those around me. I would highly recommend working with her and I've mentioned to friends on more than one occasion to at the very least do their Clifton Strengths.

{Antonia's energy and passion for the possibilities for teams that embrace CliftonStrengths is infectious. CliftonStrengths is one of the first frameworks that I've come across that is committed to being based in evidence and continuously improving which made it very attractive to me. I would highly recommend Antonia and CliftonStrengths for any individual or team trying to figure out how they fit, function and fly!
Secretariat - Governance and Executive, Statistics NZ
{The strengths-based workshops are incredibly enlightening, validating, affirming, insightful, and so much more. I really enjoyed learning more about myself; how I can add more value to others and different situations, as well as learning about the strengths of others to understand more about how they tick and why. Any effective opportunity to become a better human is always necessary and welcome (for me). Antonia is a fabulous facilitator - her warmth and enthusiasm creates a safe and fun environment to learn and grow. I would recommend this to everyone - and if they are lucky enough to get Antonia as their facilitator, they are certainly in for a treat.
Senior Advisor, Statistics NZ
{I think you're an amazing facilitator Antonia, it was probably the best facilitation / workshop I've ever attended. You were really friendly, upbeat, knowledgeable and approachable and helped to create a really nice vibe in the room. It was a great day and one that I think really helped to bring us closer as a team, and it certainly helped me to understand myself a bit better today.

{I really enjoyed my five 1:1 coaching sessions with Antonia. She is amazing at asking prompting, thought provoking questions which I absolutely loved. Not only did Antonia ably guide me through a little 'project' that I ended up signing myself up to, she has also equipped me with some helpful tools that I can use in the future. If you are looking to enhance your self-awareness and appreciation of your own unique strengths, I would highly recommend you engage with Antonia!

{Working through our strengths with Antonia helped my business partner and I understand why we bump shoulders where we do, and how best to structure our work to make the most of our individual strengths. It’s been hugely helpful! As a result we have a clear differentiation of tasks within our business and an appreciation of where our super powers lie.
Senior Advisor, Heft Communications
{The balance of group conversation and smaller breakout room dialogue was really great. The personalised resources supplied in the lead up to the session were exceptional and were incredibly helpful throughout the day. I regularly reflect back on the resources and our team have used them collectively at group meetings several times.

{I highly recommend Antonia's Virtual Strengths Discovery Workshop. It offers a great introduction to Strengths with interactive activities that really make you think and help embed what you have learnt. I found everything so fascinating and wish the time hadn't passed so fast! The fact that Antonia is also such a lovely, passionate and caring facilitator is an added bonus too. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and look forward to continuing on my strengths journey using the excellent post-course resources Antonia provides. Thank you!
