Coaching for Development and Promotion

Most individuals selected for new positions are chosen because of their success in previous roles. While this logic seems reasonable, past success may not lead to future success in jobs requiring dramatically new skill sets. Organizations can avoid setting-up executives for the clichéd “Peter Principle” by insuring that they deliberately select and prepare them for new assignments. Coaching for development and/or promotion is often a key aspect of talent management programs, especially succession planning.

We believe that the best way to develop executives is through a conjoint process of new job assignments and structured coaching. Life is the best teacher, but real life experiences combined with coaching assistance is the most efficient and thorough teacher. We work with your organization to determine which assignments will expose an executive to situations that require additional knowledge and skills. We will then conjointly create a coaching plan that supplements work assignment with tools that can enhance the learning tremendously.
