Managing for VICTORY


Business Coaching

Coaching provides intense personal attention involving analysis; planning, instruction, application, and evaluation to continuous improve performance to achieve specific results (VICTORY).

Coaching can be used for an individual or an organization. The use of coaching involves the continual use of the coaching process. For example, first the coach helps the top executive assess the organization. Second, the coach assists the top executive in the development of an action plan to achieve the specific VICTORY. This becomes the contract with the coach. Third, the coach provides instruction on the process. In many cases, this can be accomplished through self-instruction materials tailored to the particular situation. The coach, prior to application, provides a practice session to ensure the top executive knows the specific process to be performed, i.e., this is what needs to be done and how to do it. The top executive needs to be able to apply the instruction to specific situation for success. Fourth, the coach and top executive evaluate performance. The performance evaluation leads to repeating the cycle until VICTORIES can be achieved without further coaching.
