In Peak Performance Leadership Coaching Engagement, coach and coachee partner to:
Focus on achieving six-month goals
Use assessments to understand leadership strengths and communication style
Create a custom plan: a 'roadmap' to the goals
Discover and practice new leadership skills
Resolve situational roadblocks that may emerge along the way
The initial objectives for a coaching engagement are based on goals that are established in the first coaching session. Many of our clients include this as part of the diversity, equity and inclusion engagement. In every coaching session, we measure progress against engagement goals, roadmap, and action accountabilities from the previous session. In addition, we typically work with leaders in core areas of leadership including: change management, leadership presence, skills for leading effective teams, communication, conflict resolution, diversity & inclusion, engaging associates and the like.
The coaching engagement typically includes two one-hour calls or meetings per month, as well as email check-ins and occasional phone check-ins as necessary.
What to expect
In the first 6 months of coaching, the focus is on achieving program goals, while strengthening critical leadership and communication skills:
Focus on goal achievement, using our C-A-R-E coaching model
Discover and practice new leadership skills
Overcome personal barriers and situational roadblocks
Many of our clients continue with coaching beyond their initial six-month engagement. Ongoing coaching brings continuous improvement, as the coachee:
Takes on and achieve higher level professional goals
Continues developing leadership strengths
Alumni of our coaching programs consistently report the following outcomes:
Greater awareness and authentic voice
Improved leadership skills, confidence and presence
Achievement of ‘stretch’ goals, and business results
Improved ability to persuade, influence and negotiate for results
Enhanced organizational awareness and ease with navigating organizational culture, unwritten rules and “politics”
The first step to professional development and growth is to know and understand your personality strengths and weaknesses, your communication style, your preferred style of decision-making, your time management habits, and your problem-solving skills. Strategic HR Advisors offers various assessments to our clients. Contact us for more information about selecting the assessment that matches your needs.
DiSC® is the leading personal assessment tool used by over 1 million people every year to improve work productivity, teamwork and communication.
What is DiSC®?
The DiSC profile, published by Wiley, is a non-judgmental tool used for discussion of people's behavioral differences. If you participate in a DiSC program, you'll be asked to complete a series of questions that produce a detailed report about your personality and behavior. You'll also receive tips related to working with people of other styles.
Note: Information here applies only to Everything DiSC and DiSC Classic assessments. It's likely that other tests using the name DISC have not been researched and validated to the depth of Wiley's DiSC products.
The DiSC® model provides a common language that people can use to better understand themselves and to adapt their behaviors with others — within a work team, a sales relationship, a leadership position, or other relationships.
DiSC profiles help you and your team:
Increase your self-knowledge: how you respond to conflict, what motivates you, what causes you stress, and how you solve problems
Improve working relationships by recognizing the communication needs of team members
Facilitate better teamwork and teach productive conflict
Develop stronger sales skills by identifying and responding to customer styles
Manage more effectively by understanding the dispositions and priorities of employees and team members
