As a general framework for coaching, Adalta use the following model:
The initial coaching session is designed to:
Clear coaching goals are pre-agreed and documented from the outset to provide focus for the development.
It is envisaged that the coaching programme comprises a number of individual sessions each lasting approximately 1-2-hours, which can be delivered either remotely or face-to-face.
The areas of development are specific and unique to the individual. Examples of skills and behaviours that are typically integrated into management coaching may include:
During each coaching session, the progress of the coachee is reviewed, obstacles are addressed, and the coachee is encouraged to take ownership of their development. At the end of each session, practical actions are agreed, documented and followed up on.
The role of the coach is to guide, support, encourage and challenge the coachee to find their own solutions, NOT to give them the answers, although practical tools may be offered to add value to the development.
This supports the longer-term objective, which is to empower the coachee to progress their development independently of their coach once the programme is completed.
