360 PROCESS FEEDBACK – THE COACHING APPROACH
For leaders and professionals. In-person survey process for clarifying leadership strengths and areas for development. Defines specific behavioral changes that will enable full actualization of the leader’s potential.
The coaching approach to 360 Process Feedback goes beyond the off-the-shelf, check-the-box format. The coach, through inquiry, explores for underlying meaning and greater specific detail, capturing nuances that a quantitative instrument cannot. The feedback is then synthesized by the coach, who then will provide a detailed assessment of strengths and areas for improvement.
- Coach meets with 8-10 key participants for confidential one-on-one in–person survey. These conversations link survey questions to the leader’s competencies and alignment with company values.
- Feedback session for the leader and planning session for moving forward on new development focus areas.
- Follow up coaching is available and can be included in the package.
For leaders in your organization. A whole-systems approach for identifying and further developing leadership talents and capabilities. Grounded in your corporate culture and issues that your leaders are currently facing. Leaders will develop purposeful leadership that will best serve your organization.
- Customized six-session modular program, typically lasting 1.5 – 2-days each, spaced 6- 8 weeks apart
- Brief survey of each participant to provide input to the content of the program, ensuring the spirit of co-leadership and partnering
- Open, supportive environment that supports discovery and risk taking
- Whole-systems approach to the learning process, integrating the three circles of Leadership Wisdom:
Mind – beliefs, attitudes, theories, assumptions, structure, knowledge, skills
