What is Behavioral Coaching?
The coaching process starts with understanding what makes a particular employee tick. Behavioral assessment tools, such as ProScan®, can uncover the hidden potential of an employee by identifying the individual’s personal strengths and motivators, as well as responses to workplace stressors.
While a low-performing employee may be better suited for a different position within the organization, many medium performers can be coached to develop character traits which will help them be more successful in their current positions. They likely possess most of the behaviors needed to perform the job well but would benefit from training in a particular area.
Effective coaching is not formulaic. It must be individualized. Good coaches will use information from behavioral assessments to customize a development plan personal enough to promote change for a specific employee.
Who Needs a Coach?
Every person in your organization can benefit from personal development. Even those at the top need coaching.
Executives are under a considerable amount of pressure. They can benefit from a coach who knows the business and understands its politics but also understands the psychology behind personal success. Executives often seek coaching in the areas of problem solving, decision making, time management, conflict resolution, leadership, effective communication, public speaking, and delegation of responsibilities.
A successful coach will determine the relationship between personal behavior, organizational culture, and industry demands. As the market changes, old strategies and tactics become obsolete, requiring leaders to continually develop new skills. Relying on familiar patterns of behavior often leads to “blind spots” in judgement which may be corrected through candid feedback. Coaching redirects the executive toward tactics and behaviors which drive effectiveness.
