Individual coaching programs are highly tuned to the emerging leader’s needs.
I work with the individual’s direct manger, team members and extended peer groups to assess areas of strength and development. Over a six-month period we work together to fine-tune strengths, eliminate or close gaps and build a program to sustain development beyond the coaching engagement. As needed, I directly observe the client in different settings, offering opportunities for direct, behavioral feedback and feed-forward. We connect bi-weekly (or monthly) to review progress and challenges and continue to solicit input from your team members and colleagues on your performance.
Group coaching is typically connected to a larger, sustained development program.
These longer programs offer ample opportunities for classroom and workplace observation and coaching. I use the same process outlined above, with the addition of direct team, peer-group feedback and spotlight coaching, as we work through cases and activities. Additionally, I work with each individual in the program to define specific coaching objectives and to follow-up monthly during the program duration.
