BSA Training’s Coaching programme is about changing behaviours and attitudes to achieve desired results.
Each coaching programme is designed to develop and enhance the quality of performance by addressing the client’s individual requirements in a series of confidential 6 one-to-one sessions.
This is a powerful ‘action centred’ approach to coaching, with the client required to make commitments at each session, to do something that will stretch them before the next one. The main gain from coaching, however, is not what happens in the sessions but what happens in the intervals (normally two weeks) between them. You will be expected to take, from each session, a number of ‘Action Points’ which you will endeavour to complete before the next session.
The coach will skilfully ‘zero in’ on the real challenges being faced and tailor the on-going project to the agreed outcomes from the first session.
During the coaching sessions you and your coach will discuss your goals, the challenges you face and your performance as a leader. Together, you will analyse and identify the things you need to do and the possible approaches you may take. The style of these sessions will be exploratory, reflective, and rigorous. For them to be really effective they also have to be confidential. Your coach will be open and frank with you, and you will get the most out of these sessions if you adopt the same attitude.
At the end of the programme your coach will hold a review with your Sponsor who will be asked to comment on the changes he or she has seen. The coach will not, unless you have requested it, discuss the content of the sessions or any details of your conversations. Your Sponsor will be looking for results. Your coach will be asking what results have been delivered.
