We listen to ourselves talk everyday, but when people record their voice and listen back to it in headphones, they’re often very surprised at how they sound. A common, rhetorical question being, “Do I really sound like that?”
This is what coaching does… provide the objective perspective of how you’re coming across in various workplace situations. Then, a plan to overcome the negative aspects and accentuate the positive aspects is developed.
Coaching is the act of assessing individual/team strengths and challenges and providing guidance to increase success. The key is initially observing and listening to the individual/team to assess the current status and challenges. Then create solutions for growth and development.
Individual Coaching Engagement
Conducted through a series of private, confidential one-on-one sessions where the coach and client dive deep in order to discover challenges and develop capabilities. A workbook is used to track the engagement and to reference instructional content as needed. Many self-reflection worksheets are used to explore values, aspirations, and goals. Numerous assessments are utilized to determine the strengths and areas of challenge. A 360-Degree assessment builds a view of growth areas by interviewing the manager, direct-reports and peers of the leader. Then a development plan is created to show the path to increasing the strengths, overcoming the challenges, and preparing for long-term success. The coach will also observe the leader in various workplace situations to see the strengths and challenges in action and witness the improvement that occurs over time. The development focuses both on areas that can make an immediate, positive impact, as well as longer-term developmental growth areas.

Group Coaching Engagement
Conducted through a series of observational sessions and individual interviews to determine areas of strength/weakness and the underlying concerns that are affecting the group. Various assessments are utilized to form an anonymous, baseline view of the team that is measured against. Then a plan is created to enhance the team’s effectiveness through learning and team-strengthening activities. Each leader within the team receives individual coaching throughout the engagement to ensure that the team successfully navigates the growth and can sustain it over time. Group coaching engagements are customized based on the initial needs-assessment and typically range from 3-month to 6-month periods.

It translates to any level of leadership with the differences being the depth of assessment and types of developmental activities chosen.
