Coaching is a special form of supporting individuals to accelerate their development in achieving professional and/or personal goals. It is often used in the context of leadership development programming as a supplement to more formal practices.
Coaching allows for deeper exploration, discovery, and the creation of a plan (by the coachee) for action around new possibilities. The value-add is that the coach helps to unlock ideas that exist solely within the individual being coached but have not yet been unlocked.
At Leadership Variations, we offer a variety of coaching options to meet the needs of your organization (as well as individuals seeking coaching outside of formal organizations as well.)
Coaching can be offered in short term (three-month, laser) or longer term (six month +) time frames and is often paired with assessments (e.g., personality/360) for additional knowledge-gathering and insight during the discovery process. As described elsewhere, coaching may also be offered as part of a cohort leadership program (e.g., high-potential participants).
