Cultivating positive organizational behavior changes that link to strategic goals can be critical to the success of any business. One of the best ways leaders and employees can increase awareness about how others perceive them is through the strategic use of feedback. Awareness is the first step in helping people change organizational behavior and sustain the change over time. The Ken Blanchard Companies’ leverages multi-rater assessments combined with coaching to provide expert support for organizations. Assessment-Driven Coaching provides expert support for organizations that use assessments as part of their learning and change management strategies. Coaching that is informed by assessments helps accelerate behavior change by encouraging employees to act on received feedback.
Assessments provide valuable feedback that highlights strengths and opportunities for professional development. Blanchard Coaching uses a variety of renowned assessments, including our Leader Assessment Profile, the Leader Behavioral Analysis II, Frontline Leadership, and The Booth Company multi-rater 360 tools to support leaders in their growth and learning. However, feedback is the first step in a learning process. Our Assessment-Driven Coaching takes the leader beyond the emotional response to feedback and acts as a catalyst for change. Coaching moves the individual through four stages of change; awareness, behavior change, sustained behavior change and perceived behavior change. At each point, coaching supports the leader by guiding them towards purposeful action, while deepening learning.
Assessment-Driven Coaching is perfect for individuals who want to improve skills and for leaders who want to increase their team building effectiveness. Benefits of Assessment-Driven Coaching include an increased self-awareness that can support personal growth and professional development. Coaching also supports the establishment and improvement of meaningful relationships and encourages people to address opportunities for learning and growth.
