While the industry has many valuable tools there is a tremendous opportunity of using a dual assessment strategy to bring the manager and employee together for common ground, greater understanding of one another, and a framework to apply coaching strategies. Progress Coaching has created such a strategy using two custom assessment strategies:

  1. SOAR™ - this tool prompts managers to evaluate their employees based on their strengths, opportunities to improve, the actions required to facilitate the improvement, and the desired responsibility of the employee to be accountable for the improvement.
  2. GOAL-Based Coaching Assessment - this tool prompts the employee to define their personal and professional goals along with the requirements of what it's going to take to achieve those goals specific to what they need to be great at, what opportunities will be facilitated if they become great, the actions required to facilitate the improvement, and what they will ultimately well I think what we have to do about achieving the goals.

Progress Coaching uses both of these tools to bring both the manager and employee closer together for greater engagement and cooperation, but more importantly insight to what it will take from a coaching perspective to drive change the manager needs as well as what the employee is personally trying to accomplish. This combination can be very powerful. Progress coaching takes both sets of results and creates a custom coaching strategy using both sets of results to bring the manager employee together for a cooperative pursuit of achievement through the art and delivery of coaching.
