Gathering Input is Important

The first stage of any coaching engagement is establishing the agreement and creating awareness and clarity about the coaching goal. The approach may vary depending on what the company or individual has available or prefers. Assessments and instruments are used judiciously. For many professional engagements, we gather detailed feedback by conducting a series of one-on-one interviews with other senior executives, colleagues, and their employees … often referred to as a Soft 360° or Interview 360°. A confidential written report is provided to the client as part of the initial feedback session. It is not automatically shared with the company–that is up to the coachee and is governed by the terms and conditions of the contract.
