As part of The Extraordinary Coach skill-building experience, participants explore their personal approach to coaching, learn a flexible conversation framework, and practice skills that will increase their confidence and effectiveness in holding the critical conversations that matter to their employees.
Participants practice and receive feedback on coaching conversations based on their own, real-life scenarios. They return to their job with the information and tools they need to successfully engage in coaching conversations wherein individuals expand their awareness, discover their own superior solutions, and make and implement better decisions; this leads to significantly higher levels of employee empowerment and productivity.
We know that learned management styles can either help or hurt coaching conversations. A unique component of The Extraordinary Coach experience is the Coaching Attributes and Perspectives Self-Assessment which helps participants identify their personal preferences across three leadership style spectrums. Participants receive the data and insights they need to explore areas that might require adjustment in their pursuit to be an extraordinary coach.
When it comes to coaching conversations, managers often “wing it” and hope for the best. The FUEL model is a conversation framework structured enough to provide consistency; yet flexible enough to adapt to various types of conversations. Participants practice the FUEL model with real-play scenarios, receive feedback from learning partners, identify an immediate coaching opportunity, and create a plan to achieve specific goals to improve their coaching conversations.
Participants take part in an email program designed to keep coaching and the FUEL model top of mind. In addition, organizations can opt-in for FUEL Igniters―short, practical learning modules that teach the FUEL model for specific applications such as performance appraisals and navigating change. Such applications help embed extraordinary coaching and the FUEL model into talent management processes.
Our best-in-class Coaching Attributes and Perspectives Self-Assessment uses a forced choice format to help participants identify the areas within their preferred leadership styles that support or potentially hinder successful coaching conversations.
