Are you trying to improve your performance? Do you need a wise resource who helps you find creative options to increasing challenges? Perhaps you could use a safe sounding board to express your deepest concerns, challenges, hopes and visions? Are you looking for a strategic partner whose central interest is your success?
If you answered YES to any of the questions above … It’s time for a Continuum Coach!
Your Continuum Coach will sit down with you to discuss your goals and needs, provide assessments where appropriate, clarify and design a coaching regimen that fits. The Coach typically will meet with you several times a month, until you decide you are on track. This personal relationship provides a unique opportunity for people to learn, grow and develop their greatest potential.
Individual Coaching for the executive, manager or individual contributor is available stand-alone or as part of other Continuum Consulting engagements.
Word On The Street
I just wanted to thank you for making a positive impact on my life, with the coaching you gave me many years ago. I still think about our conversations. I apply the “Wendy White” to many things in my life and have shared my insights with many friends.
“I just got promoted! :–) Thanks for the coaching!” – Continuum GlaxoSmithKline
“I know you just gave me some really difficult feedback – it’s like I was hit over the head with a 2×4, but I feel like I’ve just been hugged. How did you do that?” – Coachee, Duke University
The Coaching Approach
The Continuum Coach begins with a Coaching Assessment, which includes meetings with the Client to be coached and his/her manager, along with other key individuals as needed. Together, you will identify three to five key goals or areas of focus for the coaching initiative. Each situation is unique and the structure will vary based on the needs of the individual.
A formal 360 Instrument can be incorporated as part of the coaching engagement. Continuum Coaches are certified in a variety of feedback assessments, including Lominger and RealTime Performance 360. An individualized version of the Continuum Climate Study™ and informal interviews with “key constituents” around the client can constitute a “mini-360,” providing the background necessary to determine the most effective coaching program for the client.
Coaching contracts typically run in 3-month to 6-month cycles, but are adaptable to meet specific needs, and are renewable. The Continuum Coach and Client meet in person and/or by telephone, usually bi-monthly, and include at least one on-site visit for the Coach to view the Client’s environment and normal operating style.
