Supporting Individual Development
Professional development is a very personal process. While workshops are a powerful way to drive skill building in a facilitated peer environment, individual coaching can also provide a critical level of support for lasting behavior change. Our Performance Coaching programs give your team members the opportunity to work one on one with a personal coach who is dedicated to achieving concrete results.
Our focus is on developing awareness of critical “soft” skills (communication styles, conflict resolution techniques, project and performance management tools, etc.) that are essential to career success. Clients who have worked with our executive coaches in the past report both improved business relationships, greater job satisfaction, and a renewed focus on key leadership competencies. In addition, the larger organization reaps the benefits of higher retention, improved performance, and a stronger pool of internal leadership talent.
Performance Coaching Framework
Cradlerock’s coaches work within a proven framework of face to face and remote communication meetings to help our clients achieve maximum success. This is a dynamic process which includes several distinct phases that are usually executed over a six month to year long period of time. These phases often include:
- Initial consultation
- Scheduling and stakeholder commitments
- Assessments and pre-work
- Objective setting
- Ongoing feedback and dialogue
- Conclusion and follow through
Workshop Follow Through
In addition to our standard Performance Coaching framework, Cradlerock offers shorter coaching packages as a follow up option to our most popular workshops. These workshops involve the development of a specific leadership skill, and our Workshop Follow Through program allows participants to work with a coach to apply that particular skill. These coaches are usually classroom instructors who can help translate classroom concepts into concrete, applied actions back in the workplace.
