6-12 Month Executive Coaching Program

An individual Executive Coaching Program with Stephen Carr will typically occur over a period of 6 to 12 months.  The Executive Coaching Engagement is a confidential one-on-one professional relationship that is focused on the aspects of Leadership, Management, and/or Career Development that have been defined by the coachee and/or the coachee’s organization.  Executive Coaching Sessions generally occur twice a month for 1.5-2 hours per session. Sessions are conducted in-person, on the phone, or through video conferencing.  An Executive Coaching Program with Stephen Carr is organized around a Self-Awareness Phase and a Focused Learning Phase with the specific elements defined by Stephen and his coachee/client in partnership.

We will define the specifics of your program based on a review of your objectives.

An Executive Coaching Program can include the following elements:

Phase 1 – Self Awareness

  1.   Expectation Setting includes a review of the process and a timeline for the coaching engagement with clarification of confidentiality and the guidelines for the coaching relationship.
  2.    A Self-Assessment of skills, strengths, opportunities for development, and initial goals for the executive coaching program.
  3.    A Sponsor Meeting that includes the coachee, the coachee’s manager, and the coach for the purpose of aligning expectations around the change and outcomes desired for the coaching engagement.
  4.    Hogan Leadership Assessments to be completed on-line and debriefed with the coachee in an executive coaching session.
    • The Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI) reveals the leadership behaviors others are likely to see when the coachee is at their best.
    • The Hogan Development Survey (HDS) reveals behaviors others may see when the coachee is stressed.
    • The Motives, Values, Preferences Inventory (MVPI) reveals a person’s core values, goals and interests and the kind of culture the leader is likely to promote.
  5.   A 360 Degree Qualitative Feedback Process includes a review and customization of the interview questions, determination of the stakeholders to be interviewed, completion of the interviews by the coach, creation of the in-depth, confidential 360 Degree Feedback Report, and delivery of the feedback to the coachee in an executive coaching session.
  6.    The Results Accelerator™ Discovery Session includes the delivery of the Results Accelerator™ internal 360 AssessmentThis session takes place in a one-day, in-person, off-site meeting.
  7.     A review of any other feedback and/or assessment data that has previously been provided to the coachee.

Phase 2 – Focused Learning

  1. Clarification of goals, expectations, and desired results based on the Self-Awareness Phase of the Executive Coaching Program.
  2. Coaching Sessions – 6-12 months of weekly or bi-weekly in-person, phone, or video conference coaching sessions defined by agreement between the coachee and the coach.
  3. Situational Coaching – periodic email exchanges or phone conversations for coaching related to immediate situations in support of the coaching objectives.
  4. Shadow Coaching – the coach and the coachee may decide it would be helpful for the coach to observe the coachee in action in meetings or presentations.
  5. Assessment of Progress and Results during the coaching and at the end of the program.  Sponsor meetings may be included.
  6. Next Steps – defining a self-directed learning plan and future development goals to support continued focus and attention on the results and change being worked on.
