Performance coaching from Onpoint can provide powerful career development for corporations and project teams, as well as as executives, sales professionals and operations managers.
Our individualized, creative and practical approach to business coaching helps clients accelerate their improvement and reach their full potential more efficiently.
We use the following highly-effective steps to help our clients reach their full potential and meet their needs:
1. Understand client’s environment and objectives
One of our coaches interviews and thoroughly listens to the individual, team, or company representatives to determine values, goals, opportunities, strengths, issues, and challenges. Coach meets with coachee’s supervisor for their perspective on development goals.
2. Gain commitment and buy in
The coach then guides the client through the process of defining their desired outcome and provides new perspective on the issues.
3. Utilize assessments and tools
Next, the coach uses formal or informal assessments to confirm needs and gaps.
4. Create action plan for coaching engagement
An action plan is created with specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and time-based goals.
5. Build on top strengths
The coach taps into the client’s motivations and includes customized exercises or assignments designed to transfer to their workplace.
6. Work the plan
Here, the coach and client continue working together as often as necessary. Progress is discussed and the client is held accountable.
7. Facilitate check- ins with the supervisor and talent management for alignment
These meetings help us stay on track, provide input and improve three-way communication
Finally, successes are highlighted and practice is encouraged to promote repetition and sustainability.
Susan has been my coach since 2016. I have found our discussions to be a key contributor to the progress I’ve made in my career at JPL. Susan is insightful and highly skilled at helping me to identify actions that result in personal growth. I greatly appreciate the opportunity to discuss with Susan challenging situations I encounter at work and then collaborate on options to address them effectively. She is extremely encouraging and frequently provides resources I can use in my position in line management. Working with a professional coach like Susan is something I strongly recommend to anyone wanting to maximize their potential.” ~ Lori Risse, Deputy Section Manager, Mission Assurance Management Jet Propulsion Laboratory
