Step One: The process begins with an objective assessment, such as: a 360 Degree Leadership Questionnaire; an interview (on the phone or face-to-face); and a self-assessment. These tools help pinpoint improvement areas.

Step Two: The coach analyzes data, helps set specific behavioral goals, and schedules the tele-coaching or face-to-face sessions. Each month there are two to four 20 – 60 minute tele-coaching or face-to-face sessions, pick-me-up calls (at any time) and unlimited e-mails.

The participant may also choose a subordinate to receive specific subject matter coaching. The subordinate would either use part of the participants time or establish a separate account. Either way, the primary participant would receive general feedback on the subordinates progress.

Step Three: The coach, focusing on the participants goals, asks powerful questions and provides suggestions, recommendations, direction, monitoring techniques, resources, etc. on a weekly basis, which may include:

  • Understanding oneself as well as co-workers? perceptions
  • Your response to adversity, stress, and pressure
  • The words you use and how you use them (language, articulation)
  • Competition and completion (goals, rewards and satisfaction)
  • Tolerance, support and mutual respect
  • Developing individual and company-wide harmony
  • Exacting and disseminating pleasure during the daily grind
