Individual meetings with the person:
- It is recommended that a minimum number of 8 meetings (approximately 2 to 3 weeks apart).
Mid-term check point with the manager or sparring partner: The direct leader is involved throughout the process and considered a valuable resource within the process. Thus, not only does it monitor its progress, but it can intervene to affect any organizational blockages that may be hindering the course or to redefine some goals “on the run.” The checkpoint is also very useful for the coachee, who can check the direction of the course in iteration and figure out how best to calibrate it, depending on the needs of the organization.
- Meeting coach + coachee + manager about halfway through (OPTIONAL – 30 min. to max. 1 hr.)
Distance development: between meetings and throughout the duration of the pathway there is a distance support, with the aim of maintaining an active relationship with the coach and thus keeping the person’s tension and engagement with the pathway high. The person has the opportunity to maintain an active discussion with the counselor, including clarifying any doubts/concerns.
- Scheduling of call and/or skype connection (with definition of time “windows”)
