Leadership Dev - Leadership Dev

As early as 1830, Oxford University students began defining a coach as, “a tutor who carries a student through an exam.”  Today, a business “coach” may be classified by similar terms, “a guide that carries leaders forward to reach their goals.”  As a guide, a coach establishes focus, creates perspective, and advocates next steps, yet it is up to the leader to truly develop and make lasting changes.

Building trusted leaders doesn’t stop once compiling survey data has ended. With the completion of a Work Effects Revolution 360TM survey assessment and help by management to establish an action plan, it is often valuable to have these leaders work closely with a coach to put those plans into action.

Utilizing the guidance of a knowledgeable coach can be invaluable as a leader reviews their 360 report. Skilled coaches offer an objective point-of-view, a new way of thinking, a light of encouragement, and the necessary accountability for reaching goals.

Work Effects has a large, global network of coaches, most with over 20+ years of experience.  These thought-leaders have a diverse set of backgrounds and experiences coaching mid- to senior-level management.

The mission of Work Effects’ leadership development coaching is to deliver personal, interactive engagements that:

    Educate, empower and energize individuals, teams and organizations to fulfill their goals

    Expand self-awareness, challenge traditional appoaches and support sustainable growth to break down barriers and create new opportunities along the way

    Understand a leader's unique needs and gain commitment for change rather than forcing it upon them

Work Effects has created a leadership development process that is built on the successful completion of a 360 assessment. Our coaching modules integrate smoothly with a Work Effects Revolution 360 assessment and help to create transformational leaders within organizations:

    ACTIONTM Guides – After completing a Revolution 360, a plan is established that leverages the strengths and mitigates the weakness that were uncovered. This plan is designed to prioritize development needs, create behavioral goals, and outline appropriate action steps needed for personal growth.

    ACESTM Coaching – This four-part coaching regime is used to assist transformational leaders to make the long-term changes necessary to improve. Working one-to-one or in small groups, leaders learn to become more self-aware, develop an actionable plan, and utilize coaching feedback and support to determine if they are meeting business objectives.

    Teaching-ProsTM Training – Effective leaders that have gone through the ACES coaching program can now pass on this new level of learning to others.  This mentoring program helps to establish an organizational coaching culture. Current and future leaders will emerge with the establishment of this in-house coaching network.

    Trust & CuriosityTM Coaching – A two-day intensive program to teach H.R.professionals and managers how to effectively coach and develop talent. With a 1:4 instructor to participant ratio, the program creates focused learning in a rich feedback and instructional environment. Learn more HERE.
