For individuals

I recommend an initial (free) strategy session to understand the needs, limitations and the expectations of the individual.

Subsequently, I structure a schedule of personal interactions. I also set up the number of hours of telephonic support and online chats.

For groups

Depending on the need, I customise and structure the following methods

Coaching Methods

Objective

Half Day Seminars1

For problem awareness and root cause analysis

Weekend Workshops2

To develop skills for specific problems

Long Term Workshops3 

(typically 3 Contact Hours per week
for 10-11 weeks)

To develop a deeper set of skills that
require more time,practice and feedback

1 Seminars are in the form of interactive discussions or lectures / talks

2 Workshops are interactive with emphasis on practical exercises

3 These are a combination of lectures and practical exercises

I provide certificates of participation and when required, I grade the participants on behalf of the course sponsors.

For Career-related discussions, I prefer to have participants to be either friends, or from different organisations, who are comfortable sharing their issues. I do not recommend persons from the same department, or having a reporting relationship, participating in the same session.

To optimise delivery, the process followed is:

  1. The topics to be covered are pre-selected from a check-list
  2. The objective of the workshop / seminar is determined
  3. The coaching method is determined
  4. The date and logistics of the event is fixed
    • This includes any requirement for pre-workshop material
