Executive and Career coaching
Coaching is a personal endeavor with unique goals and expectations for each associate – coach relationship. But the impact of the coaching experience extends beyond the individual being coached and impacts their colleagues, subordinates, customers, family and friends.
A recent study by the International Coaching Federation (ICF) cited the following statistics: 80% of people who receive coaching report increased self-confidence, over 70% benefit from improved work performance, relationships, and more effective communication skills and 86% of companies report that they recouped their investment on coaching and more.

Engage with the associate - The process begins by creating a comfortable and appropriate
connection of trust that will be the foundation of the coaching relationship and supports the
remaining four steps. This includes covering the coaching agreement and ICF ethics.
Explore the associate’s goals - The discovery process is where the associate is challenged to
articulate their wants and desires, identify obstacles, describe what achieving their goals means
and gaining commitment to act.
Establish the associate’s action plans & measures - The process whereby the associate
formulates strategies, plans and milestones to achieve their goals. Relationships, skills and
resources needed for success are also identified at this point.
Evaluate the associate’s progress - The review and reflection of progress toward goals since the
last session and allows for revision of goals, timelines, or resources as necessary to maintain the
associate’s motivation toward improvement and goal accomplishment.
Embrace the associate’s SUCCESS – This very important stage ensures that the associate
recognizes their progress (no matter how small) and celebrates their success as a means of
encouraging future actions and progress toward their goals.
