What is Coaching?
Coaching is a process of development that is centered on you. Coaching provides you with greater self-awareness, allows you to take action, create new behaviors, and achieve professional and personal development goals.
The number one factor that leads to success in a coaching engagement is you. You determine the success of your coaching engagement. To receive optimal results you must be fully engaged, be present, and be willing to dig deep to gain true self-awareness. You must address all of those deep rooted quirks that you define as "that's just the way I am." Without this truth and honesty with yourself, no coach can help you. You must take the first step which is that you acknowledge that something has to change and be open to change.
How It Works
Our coaching program occurs in four simple steps:
- Skill Development and Plan
Who Should Participate
In organizations, coaching is a tool that is utilized for high potential and high performing employees. Coaching can be utilized to help onboard new employees to the organization, as well as onboard, existing employees into new management roles. Coaching is also utilized by employees who are vested in their career and personal development and seek a coach on their own.
Coaching should not be used as a tool to manage performance. Performance coaching should come directly from the direct Manager.
Length of Coaching
Coaching engagements are normally between three to six months. In some scenarios, coaching engagements can last up to twelve months.
