Sponsored programs complicate what is often seen as an individual process, but they are necessary to create a culture of coaching across the organization.  Gain valuable insights as you design the right program for your organization.  Patti can help you to answer questions like these:

  • What's the best way to select participants and match them to coaches?
  • As the sponsor, how do I communicate clearly and accurately what is expected of people who are selected to benefit from coaching services?
  • What are the biggest obstacles and enablers to getting buy-in and commitment from the people who really need coaching?
  • What tools or assessments should be implemented across the whole program, and what should be left to the discretion of the individual client and coach?
  • How can we measure whether a coaching engagement is successful? 

Patti spoke to HR professionals at the 4-Nov HR Alliance meeting. The topic?  Coaching:  What It Is, What It's Not, and What It Can Do for Your Company.  These questions were submitted by participants as top-of-mind for designing their own coaching programs.
