FIVE-STEP EXECUTIVE COACHING PROCESS
STEP 1: Assessment
- Meet with the client and sponsor to discuss the coaching process.
- Apply our exclusive Executive Style Assessment to get information on the client's dominant behaviors, motivators, and thinking patterns.
- Use 360 input from questionnaires and in-depth interviews to understand how others perceive the client.
STEP 2: Executive Coaching Plan
- Meet with the client to share the assessment information.
- Identify behavior the coaching will focus on modifying.
- Define how progress will be measured and who will provide measurement input.
- Secure a sincere interest and commitment from the client to change.
- Ensure the organization is truly interested in supporting the client.
STEP 3: Involving Stakeholders
- Meet with key stakeholders (others the client has identified as important to a successful coaching outcome and those who will be responsible for providing measurement input) in order to explain the coaching process and their role in it.
- Ask key stakeholders to provide support for the client's behavioral change and to let go of history with the client that is focused on past difficulties.
- This stage often includes getting key stakeholders to commit to some type of change in themselves.
STEP 4: Coaching and Behavioral Change
- Spend time with the client in discussions designed to bring about the desired and agreed upon behavioral changes.
- As the coaching progresses, conduct thorough discussions of those things that help and hinder a successful change experience.
STEP 5: Measurement and Follow-up
- Meet periodically with key stakeholders and the sponsor to obtain information about the success of the behavioral change effort.
- Discuss with stakeholders how they can further assist the client in creating the desired behavioral change.
- Share this information with the client as input into the coaching and behavioral change process (STEP 4).
