COACHING TO SUPPORT TRANSITIONS

Have you got an opportunity to do something different and now are trying to work out what that is?
 
Do you have conversations with people around you, even with those who have power, and find that they don’t understand what will be required?
Do you need someone to bounce your ideas off? 

When you are in transition - moving into a new role or a new organisation, some support to find your feet is both a necessity and often the thing we ignore in the rush and excitement of the new.

 

The Navigator Program has been designed to support people who are new to the innovation/transformation/continuous improvement space or are transitioning their content knowledge into a new organisation. When you are in the early stages of a new role in this space, it can feel overwhelming and sometimes difficult to decide where to start. Understanding where you are, where the organisation is and how you will need to be to help others move are all difficult issues to work through by yourself. Rowena has been where you are. She has the lived experience of what it is to be trying to introduce change into an organisation that may or may not be ready for it.

The Navigator Program is comprised of two sets of sessions - Wayfinder and Consolidate - which are 90 days each giving you six months of support in total. These sessions are held on a Friday to help you review the week just gone and set goals for the coming period. 

 

After completing the Wayfinder Sessions you can expect to be clear on the goal you want to achieve, for yourself or in your organisation, having tested it to be sure you are on the right track. You will be clear on where you organisation currently sits and what impacts this may have on your goal. You will have done some thinking about the paths you might take to achieve your goal and have undertaken some prototyping to see which might work. You will be feeling empowered to undertake your journey and have worked through some new material to learn from others via the Wisdom Shelf.

 

After completing both the Wayfinder and Consolidate Sessions you will have chosen a goal, tested it and implemented activities towards achieving it. You will have been supported to reflect on your learning through this journey.

 

The Wisdom Shelf program gives you access to six of the most influential books used by Rowena in her transformation and improvement practice. We will discuss the lessons the authors share and reflect on how they can applied to your setting. Start, or add to, your transformation library by collecting wisdom from those who came before you.

 

Approach

The context in which this coaching takes place will vary from person to person. However it is designed to support you in your journey by meeting your needs. We will work together to make sure we are clear on what you think should change, what this might look like and how you bring it about.

 

In the Wayfinder Sessions, you will take a solution focused approach to a three phase process - firstly, we will agree how we will work together and find out where you are. Next you are supported to articulate where you want to go. The final phase will be to determine the paths by which you might get there. Each month you will be sent a book or article selected from the Wisdom Shelf to support your journey.

 

Following your successful completion of the Wayfinder Sessions, we will work together in the Consolidate Sessions to make and keep agreements about what you will do. Your coach will help keep you accountable to the agreed implementation plan with monthly check-ins and discussions. Each month you will be sent a book or article selected from the Wisdom Shelf to support your journey. 

 

Delivery

These sessions are delivered via web based video conferencing. You will require an internet connection and a computer that has a webcam and microphone. Wisdom Shelf books and articles will be sent to you in hard or soft copy.

 

Program outline

The program has two stages - you can choose to do one or both depending on your needs. Each Program has a structured approach to  coaching, however this will be tailored to your needs. There will be discussions on the Wisdom Shelf as thought starters through your journey.

 

The Wayfinder Sessions will help you determine what needs to change, how you want it to be different and what you are going to do to make that happen. You are then equipped to get out into the world and go for it.

 

There are four sessions, during the first 4 weeks, the one hour sessions occur fortnightly with the second session including a Wisdom Shelf discussion. This is followed by two monthly 90 minute sessions, including the Wisdom Shelf discussions, to support you as you move through your planned change approach.

 

If you feel you may need further support, the Consolidate Sessions comprises of three monthly sessions of 90 minutes coaching including the Wisdom Shelf discussion.
