Our Executive Coaching Program

 

STEPONE:  ASSESSMENT

Tostart the executive coaching process, weconduct a series of life-career interviews with the coaching candidate. The interview examines issues such as personal and work history,interpersonal experiences, attitudes, values, and interests, and aspirations.

Inaddition, we assess the coaching candidate using an array ofbusiness-based psychological inventories and 360° tools, most of which arecomputer analyzed and delivered over the internet.

Finally,we integrate performance management data into theassessment. We examine yearly evaluations and all other materials that the organizationused to evaluate the coaching candidate.

STEPTWO:  PLANNING

We start out by delivering an in-depth, confidential debriefingof allassessment findings. We work with the candidate to identify the candidate’s key strengths and areasin need of development, as they relate to personal aspirations and to theorganization's business strategies.  Wewill clarify inner motivators for change and inner resistances to it. We will look for means to increase success.  Ultimately, we want to harness themotivators and neutralize the resistances.

We willtake all the information gathered through these different means and summarizethe findings into our Blueprint For Action.  

STEPTHREE:  ACTION

Wehelp the coaching candidate recognize and reciprocate with those who gavefeedback to the candidate.  It is extremelyimportant that the candidate understand that the feedback was provided to helpthe candidate improve their leadership abilities.  Inaddition, we will debrief the coaching candidate’s manager and involve him/herinrefining the Blueprint for Action.

Thecoaching candidate will then begin action "experiments" during real-time,day-to-day work life, then debrief and further refine those experiences.  We will utilize high impact behavioral changetechniques to increase the likelihood of success.

Finally,we will measure progress against plan by designing simple and practical feedback loops intothe work routine.

STEPFOUR:  REASSESS AND REFINE

Weunderstand that by developing effective monitoring and evaluation tools, thecoaching candidate can regularly reflect on the progress and then modify theBlueprint for Action to better reflect the new goals for the coaching candidate.
