This coaching intervention is about creating a safe space for the coachee to test new ideas on how to influence their manager without the benefit of ‘title power’. It is often a cause of frustration and centres around the coachee not finding a way of being appropriately assertive. In their communication style, they will typically undershoot and consequently appear evasive or overshoot and consequently appear blunt or rude.
Therefore, once you have decided to conceptualize your Talent Program for all the right reasons it is now time to start crystalizing it to a firm deliverable.
Three scenarios that crop up often in my coaching practice are:
• Will I be good enough? – The fear of something I have not experienced yet.
• Negotiating the right compensation package in internal promotions.
• Managing people who used to be peers.
This program is a three day intensive leadership experience on a real company business issue. The outcome is individual awareness of leadership strengths and areas for development and the personal gap to be overcome to achieve the next level. The experience also releases tremendous energy and fosters a closer network and collaboration among the participants. The program is led by two facilitators to ensure that each individual receives substantial feedback. It is a valuable investment that produces powerful outcomes.
