Our 4 Step Coaching Program

Step 1

Clear identification and agreement on behavioral targets (improvements/enhancements) from the individual, his manager and sometimes a Human Resource professional is involved for organizational perspective. These early sessions explore transforming old behaviors that WERE successful into new behaviors that are critical for new roles or assignments. This time is also used to identify personal and organizational roadblocks.

Step 2

Diagnosis of personal and organizational drivers and hurdles which are helping and/or hindering the individual. This provides an understanding of the levers for change from the individual’s perspective. The diagnostic and insight tools include: 360º Feedback on skills (this can be based on internal competencies or generic skills based on research), behavioral style, team style, values, interests, FIRO-B, Work Expectations, Job Profile Match, Time Mastery, Learning Style, Derailment Indicator, Diversity Index, Listening Assessment, etc.

Step 3

Formulating a Coaching Plan which serves as a written guide to clearly define and agree on behavior changes and skill enhancements that are needed. Also, the methods, steps and agreements on meetings are outlined and time-lined. This is done early in the process and is the compass which keeps the coaching process on track and produces visible measures toward the goal.

Step 4

Formulating a Development Plan midway through the coaching process. This allows the leader to develop some additional understanding of how to be self sufficient in developing him/herself.  This step also shows how to produce a useful development plan that takes the leader past the coach being present, but continues to provide self reflection, solicitation of feedback and continued growth.

What people say about us

Business owners who want to grab attention and get their audience at “Hello,” need to follow Linda’s simple, yet powerful formula for creating an elevator speech. As a writer who helps business owners and entrepreneurs turn their ideas into clear, concise, valuable information, I struggled to find the right words when introducing myself at business events until I followed Linda’s proven formula. If you want to learn how to speak about your business so others will listen—listen to Linda.

I worked with Linda in preparation for an interview with a major corporation. Linda was able to identify key elements of the job spec and clarify my skills and respond clearly and effectively in order to stand out from the crowd. She reviewed my resume and identified skills that met with the job requirements. Then a mock interview during which Linda asked directed questions and listening closely to my responses. She then gave insightful input as to how better to word my responses and present myself over the phone. The outcome was an interview that was stress free because I was prepared. Linda is very professional and I highly recommend using her services.
