Develop Your Coaching Skills
Fostering inspiring collaborations is a continuous learning journey. Most learning takes place on-the-job, while you are busy solving problems and improving your work life.
We support you in this process by providing personal coaching, guiding (management) teams, and providing open and in-company training courses. Throughout your journey with us, you experience how to engage your teams/organization using Team Learning, Lean-Agile tools, and positive coaching.
How We Learn
Have you ever wondered how people learn? The 70-20-10 Model for Learning and Development breaks down how people learn effectively. It is based on a survey asking executives to self-report how they believed they learned new skills. The respondents reported they learned:
- 70% from challenging assignments (on-the-job)
- 20% from developmental relationships (coaching)
- 10% from courses and training
Although training is an essential starting point for gathering knowledge and gaining insight, you need a substantial follow-up to bring lasting change. That is why we prepare you for the learning journey, not for one particular standardized end-state.
The Ratio Makes The Mix
Development generally begins with the urge to improve something. This might come from feedback, failing, or not feeling up to a task – in other words, from experience. Still, we need sources of information, proven practices, and guidance to keep from re-inventing the wheel all the time.
This is why we offer a healthy mix of coaching, guidance, and training. And we offer an open set of techniques and learning materials designed for easy on-the-job learning.
