- Coaches help clients and their employers set realistic development goals. They create practical action plans to reach those goals. And they monitor their clients’ progress to ensure they are taking responsibility for their commitments.
- Coaches help the client identify causes and solutions when objectives are not being achieved.
- Coaches ask questions. Sometimes they play devil’s advocate, asking tough questions that force their clients to review their own progress, assess what’s gone wrong, and decide what actions to take next.
- Coaches review a client’s experiences, successes and challenges, to help them understand what kinds of behaviors generate the best results.
Today, fewer and fewer companies are having conversations such as these with their senior people. We are delighted to play a role in restoring this balance.
