The Executive Coaching Sessions provided by DCo includes the following:
Coaching Agreement and Contracting
In the first executive coaching session the Coach and Coachee will mutually define the coaching intervention to address the individual’s commitment, previous experience, responsibilities, outcomes and confidentiality.
Ahead of the first session, if in line with the development requirement the Coachee will undertake assessment. An example of which is a measure of Emotional Intelligence or EQ. This assessment measures a person’s ability to deal with daily environmental demands and pressures and helps predict success in both professional and personal pursuits. Its components are not static and can change and be developed in targeted areas.
One-To-One Coaching Conversations
Three initial coaching sessions are held. These sessions discuss results and findings of any assessment instrument used. Current work, team and organisational situations that arise during the coaching process are explored as well as role specific topics that are relevant to the required outcomes.
When appropriate, coaching meetings will also include review of relevant resources and materials shared with the Coachee relevant to the key coaching goals agreed to.
Actions and commitments for the purpose of professional development will be defined by the Coachee with the support of the Coach. With agreement, these development plans may be shared and discussed with the Coachee’s manager.
