Fitch Coaching Program
The coaching program at Fitch & Associates is an inquiry-based approach to personal and professional development that aims to create awareness, generate action, and facilitate learning and growth. It focuses on improving performance by helping individuals develop and sustain new perspectives, attitudes, skills, and behaviors.
Agencies engaging a Fitch Coaching Project can expect the engagement to involve:
- Facilitating learning
- Gathering and giving feedback (360)
- Identifying development opportunities (pre-work assessments)
- Building awareness
- Facilitating solutions by asking powerful questions
- Setting goals and making action plans
- Supporting and encouraging over the long term
- Monitoring progress and holding others accountable
A typical coaching engagement is about 6 months in duration and is made up of three major phases.
Phase 1: Coaching contract, discovery call (project goals intake), and initial coaching client assessments to be completed before phase 2.
Phase 2: A Fitch & Associates coach comes to your site to deliver two learning sessions (appreciative inquiry and ???) and to do coaching discovery sessions with all coaching clients.
Phase 3: Regular, bi-weekly, half-hour coaching sessions with each coaching client via Zoom. At the end of the 6-month period, the agency will be provided a general report of the coaching engagement.
