Are you struggling to get your managers to engage in meaningful coaching and development of their employees?

Over the last several years, coaching implementation efforts have been studied and consistently, year after year, companies find themselves struggling to get managers to spend the time actually coaching employees — even after they’ve been provided with the training and job aides to do so. The primary reasons given by managers regarding their lack of performance around coaching are:

  • Not enough time
  • Lack of accountability
  • Lack of commitment (on both employee and manager’s part)

The disconnect: Managers are promoted to, hired in, and rewarded for delivering business results. That’s what they’re good at and comfortable with, so that’s what they focus on — it’s how they choose to spend their time. Managers are focused more on the business and less on the people. It’s the mindset, not just the skill set.

CoachUP!™ Coaching Skills for Real Change is a comprehensive learning experience (and let’s emphasize the word “experience” here) that helps individual leaders and managers master what it takes to have meaningful feedback and intentional developmental interactions with employees in a regular, comfortable, competent, and effective way.

Whats the Edge?

Simple, tactical conversational techniques in addition to an easily applied coaching model that:

  • Reduces fear and anxiety around feedback
  • Re-frames the conversation to create space for change

Content. This program is designed with content specifically built for time-crunched managers. We keep it simple. We reduce ambiguity on how to coach skill development and behavior change.
Mind-Shift & Context. The context of this program makes it real and shows you how to be effective. You get coached on how to coach. This contextualized, supported experience is where your mindset shifts.
Personalization. We work with your managers on a one-to-one basis and personalize the program to make it more effective for you. This is also where mindset shifts.
Mandatory Practice. Coaching is all about practice, application, and reflection.
