What is Development Coaching
Development Coaching is the transformation of Performance Management tools by fusing contemporary coaching methodologies to evolving learning management systems.
Unlike the traditional Performance Management model, which came out of the post-World War II industrial era, new generations of employees and leaders are less command and control oriented and this creates friction and dysfunction both internally and externally.
As coaches and trainers, we excel at developing teams, by bringing Awareness, Education, and Accountability to a team or organization.
Over the last 20 years, coaching has changed from providing remedial instruction to employees, to focusing scarce resources on Executives and Senior Managers in a bid to drive business and enhance succession planning. And, more recently, it has been used by individuals when a person wants to develop themself, such as a middle manager wanting to get promoted.
Development Coaching focuses on a Professional and Personal Development-Centered coaching system:
- It revolves around the concept of frank and sincere coaching and ongoing learning at all levels of the organization rather than solely on historic annual reviews.
- It supports and encourages the talents, growth, and self-exploration of all employees without being lenient on deficiencies.
- It tests for knowledge gain and retention in an online learning management system.
- And, it provides a self-paced opportunity for the improvement of personal effectiveness.
What we have seen time and again is that Development Coaching is proactive not reactive like most Performance Management Models.
- It creates a cost efficient training and development platform for real-world communication skills.
- And, it offers HR, Trainers, Management, Consultants, and Coaches near real-time accountability tools and maximized flexibility.
Finally, there are three areas that Development Coaching ultimately impacts. We strive to give each temperament what they need to excel, in a Customer-Centric, and future focused way. This drives business by improving both internal and external client interaction and communication.
