benefits

After completion of the program, participants will be able to:

  • Use a powerful generic process for coaching.
  • Clarify specific coaching relationships and goals through contracting.
  • Create their own coach’s development plan, based on the results of a competency-based coaching assessment.
  • Identify aligned ways of addressing performance breakdowns to address the causes rather than the symptoms.
  • Explore techniques for generating possibilities and gaining commitment to action, identifying the coaching opportunities to accelerate performance and development.

the program Pre-work: a 360-degree feedback process is part of the preparation of this program. This process is aimed at obtaining an insight in leadership styles of the participant, the organizational climate that he/she creates, as well as on the Randstad Group competencies. Results of the feedback will be discussed in a personal feedback session with a certified facilitator.

In-person session: an intensive two-day workshop focusing on the practices and challenges required to coach effectively at Randstad. Topics include:
  • Setting goals to overcome the challenges of coaching 
  • Establishing the ground rules for the coaching approach – when, where, why, how, what is to be achieved 
  • Assessment of the existing situation to identify what needs to be addressed 
  • Feedback, enhancing learning and encouraging new understanding of the issue 
  • Exploring techniques for generating options for development and selecting specific goals and objectives 
  • Agreeing commitment to the objectives 
  • Establish a process to monitor and evaluate the outcomes of the coaching. 

Post-assignment: after the seminar, the participants will have the opportunity to apply the coaching skills into practice under the guidance of Linkage International. Therefore a process of 6 months will continue afterwards, in which the participants will need to take an active role in coaching calls and a webinar.
