The Coaching Process
Each coaching engagement is personally developed based on the objectives of the company and coaching client. Information gathering and proven assessments provide deep insights into a client's personal style and behavior. Regular meetings by telephone or in person create relationship and trust between client and coach, the foundation for rapid growth and progress toward mission critical goals and results.
Coaching from the perspective of the organization as a whole, business coaching provides opportunities to implement strategies integrating all dynamics of an organization considered from a team concept. Individual and group coaching with members of your leadership team form the foundation for the alignment of goals, building of trust and enhanced productivity throughout an organization.
Have you dealt with a disengaged employee whose work is subpar and whose attitude can only be called unpleasant, yet is too valuable to lose? Turnaround coaching provides the opportunity for an employee to identify and reverse trends in attitude and performance before it is too late. Through the use of assessments and self-exploration, individuals are able to recognize their own subpar performance. Coaching creates the awareness on the part of the employee enabling them to take steps toward the next level of success.
Leadership coaching is not for business leaders looking to do more; rather it is for those who strive to be more effective in what they do. Most leaders want to be great. Leadership coaching is designed to alert leaders to their blind spots and then build on the talents they already possess to increase effectiveness and success.
Coaching translates into doing. Executive coaching provides middle and upper level management the opportunity to grow. With the guidance of a professional coach, executives are able to successfully apply managerial concepts to daily circumstances and thus enhance performance throughout the organization. This leads to permanent positive impact for an organization's growth.
The mentoring process adds the element of knowledge and experience to the "self-discovery" aspect of coaching to create a blend of interaction between a mentor and their associate. A mentoring relationship can be a long term process as in the case of a rising star tapping into the expertise of a sage senior leader. Mentoring can also be narrow and limited in scope. For example, there might be a need to transfer specialized knowledge or technical expertise to younger people for immediate or future application.
Through Eagles Eyes can assist in developing a formal mentoring program with training and support to ensure the goals of the program are met.
