There are real factors that could put coaching at risk: Coachees saying they are coachable but are not, have a lack of motivation, hold unrealistic expectations of what coaching is, are not committed to doing the work, and/or lack of on the job feedback or support from sponsors and stakeholders as they practice the learnings. Churchill works with you upfront to determine if coaching is the right solution – we have clear Rules of Engagement that each coachee reviews and signs with their coach to align expectations at the start of the engagement.
Another risk is with the Executive Coach – Coachee relationship. If the coach lacks the right experience, expertise, and techniques, cultural sensitivity, insufficient empathy, or struggles to hold a coachee accountable, the Executive Coaching experience can be jeopardized. We proactively mitigate that risk by helping you choose your Churchill coach(s) wisely – we have a proven methodology to match the right coach to your need.
