The Leadership Effectiveness Coaching Program includes the following components:
Goal-setting phase. Program success is measured through SMART goals with observable behavior changes things you do and say that people can directly observe you doing more or less. We build your goals through a combination of input from your own self-assessment and input from others (see Assessment phase). Your manager can choose to be involved in setting goals for your coaching program through:
- Input and/or feedback through conversations with you
- Collaborative session with both of us
- 1:1 conversation with your coach
Assessment phase. Up to six 15-minute confidential interviews with key staff, co-workers or stakeholders to give your coach additional insights into your strengths and areas for development.** Review and analysis of other data points such as a recent 360 feedback survey or performance review. Done concurrently with ongoing weekly coaching sessions.
Weekly coaching sessions. Leadership Effectiveness Coaching Program is a 6-month program with 12 hours of coaching, typically scheduled as 4 sessions @ 60 minutes for the first month, then 16 sessions @ 30 minutes for the next 5 months. Front-end depth, with long-term refinement.
Unlimited “laser coaching.” Quick 5-10 minute coaching is available during work days between sessions for time-sensitive input e.g., quick thought-partner for a time-critical issue, review, and feedback on draft materials for an upcoming meeting.
Mid-point feedback. 15-minute phone sessions or email. An optional step mid-way through the coaching process for your manager and others included in the initial assessment phase to provide feedback on your progress.
Evaluation. Final written feedback from your manager to assess progress made on your goals. Optionally, others initially interviewed can be included in this process.
Transition. During the final session of the program, we review initial coaching goals, evaluate whether success criteria have been met, and assess whether there are additional coaching goals to pursue. End contract or renew contract and continue work, as appropriate.
*All work done in phone sessions; travel for occasional onsite sessions negotiated for additional travel fees. Total program fee due on initiation of coaching contract.
**Additional fee for written summary of interview feedback; to maintain confidentiality, original comments may be edited and aggregated.
