Discussion of Curriculum-Based Coaching

Why follow-up training with coaching?

Have you ever attended a workshop, got inspired and excited about what you have learned, only to find out a few months later that despite your good intentions you are not making any real changes?  Sadly, this is true for most people. Once they are back to their usual routines, they lose the momentum and focus of the training event, and go back to the old and familiar ways. Personal coaching addresses this by creating an external reason to implement the new skills, and by helping participants apply what they learned to their particular situation. In this context personal coaching is sometimes referred to as "distributed training method designed to create change."

A Franklin Covey study found that effectiveness of their workshops improved by 400% when the workshops were followed up with personal coaching.

 

What is coaching?

Coaching is a result-oriented working partnership between a coach and a client. The results produced from this relationship are observable and measurable, commensurate with the requirements the organization has for the performance of the person being coached. In your situation the results that we will be seeking to produce is a 100% absorption and implementation of what you have learned during our training programs.

 

But I am still not clear on the concept. I understand my role in the partnership, but what will the coach do?

  • A coach will provide on-going structure, accountability, motivation, and support to help you execute your plans.
  • A coach will help you identify and remove unproductive behaviors that keep you from achieving your desired results.
  • A coach will help you access and utilize your potential, resulting in an increase in business performance, self-reliance, growth, personal success and happiness.
  • A coach will act as an objective sounding board - - telling the truth as he or she sees it.
  • A coach will assist you in finding your own solutions, thus creating self-sufficiency, independence and growth.
  • A coach will teach where the coach has expertise, celebrate your victories, and stand by your side¬†through tough times.

 

What will the coaching session look like?

  • Coaching sessions are confidential; they last 30-45 minutes and are conducted one to four times per month in person or on the phone, individually, or in small groups.
  • You will typically discuss your workweek with your coach, bring up any issues you had with implementing what you have learned.
  • A coach may help you clarify the new concepts.
  • Through conversation, a coach may help you uncover the reasons of why you may be resisting the new learning.
  • Group coaching sessions may be indicated if your organization sent several people to our training program

 

How many sessions will I need?

It varies depending on the individual. Normally, it takes 41 day to form a habit.

† Based on Franklin Covey research, we recommend 6 to 8 sessions.
