“Coaching is unlocking a person’s potential to maximise their own performance. It is helping them to learn, rather than teaching them.” – Sir John Whitmore
Executive Coaching Services for Senior Leaders
The specific coaching objectives for the Coachee will be determined in the diagnosis stage of the program. The coaching objectives will be incorporated with input from self-assessment and interviews with the Coachee’s line manager and key stakeholders. The program will have a significant impact on the Coachee’s performance and provide a positive return on investment. However, should you wish to increase or reduce the scope of the program, we would be pleased to discuss.

Coaching Program for Senior Executive
Stage 1 : Preperation
The Coachee will meet with the recommended coach and will have the opportunity to discuss their coaching approaches. The Coach will also explain the coaching process to the Coachee and assess the responsiveness of the Coachee to being coached.
The Coach may request access to assessments conducted by Agilent which may provide insights into the Coachees’s traits and behaviors. Depending on the coaching topic, Progress-U may recommend special targeted assessments, if required.
The Coach will initially interview the Coachee’s direct line manager. The purpose of these interview is for the Coach to gain inputs and assess the Coachee’s strengths and areas for development and to understand better the context of the coaching.
This session is between the Coach and Coachee and is primarily for determining the coaching goals taking into consideration the information from the interviews and assessments plus the Coachee’s own ideas on where they should focus during the coaching. The coaching objectives will then be formalized and documented together with the Coachee.
An alignment meeting will be arranged between the Coachee, the Coachee’s direct line manager, the Coach and, optionally, the HR Business Partner. The purpose of this meeting is to align the coaching objectives to determine success of the coaching assignment.
Stage 2 : Coaching Sessions
The Coachee will receive a certain number of hours of coaching determined based on the scope of work and objectives to be achieved. The sessions are usually 90 mins in length. They extend over a period of seven to eight months. At the end of each coaching session the Coachee will create a set of action points to be completed before the next session. In addition, the coach may also request the Coachee to complete certain tasks prior to the next session. It is important that the Coachee commits to the coaching and the completion of tasks.
This meeting after about half of the assignment will be arranged by the Coachee, and is between the Coachee, the Coachee’s Direct Line Manager, the Coach and, optionally the HR Business Partner. The purpose of this meeting is to reflect on the progress the Coachee has made towards the coaching objectives and to determine what actions are still needed to ensure objectives are achieved.
Stage 3 : Measurement
This is a tailor-made tool to measure visible changes observed by direct reports, and/or peers and potentially others.
There will be one final coaching session where the result of the 190/360 Degree assessments will be reviewed, and the Coach will help the Coachee with plans for future development and actions.
This meeting at the end of the assignment will be arranged by the Coachee, and is between the Coachee, the Coachee’s Direct Line Manager, the Coach and, optionally the HR Business Partner. The purpose of this meeting is to share observations of achieved positive changes and to determine any next steps, if needed.
There will be a closing meeting between Progress-U Account Manager and HR to review the coaching success and if any extension will be required.
