V2P has a distinct methodology to how leadership coaching is conducted; it’s evidence-based, starts from the inside-out, involves others than just the leader being coached and has a strong accountability element.
Evidence-based: To set the direction for the coaching, it’s essential for the client to receive feedback and insights on strengths and development areas. This feedback is gathered via a reputable self or 360 assessment tool or interviews with client’s boss, peers and direct reports.
Starts from the inside-out: Change needs to start within before changing things outside one’s control. Often these areas of change are blind spots for clients; this is where a Coach provide valuable, honest insights and perspectives.
Non-vacuum approach: Lasting change rarely occurs with just the actions and behaviour change of one person. V2P takes a systems approach to look at the whole ecosystem at the individual, team and organizational level and at external factors.
Accountability: Behavioural, skill and habitual change is simple, not easy. The brain thrives for goals and being held to commitments. This is the core of coaching – goals are set, progress is monitored, celebration occurs when goals are achieved.
