LifeLine Corporate has had many years of training experience and we have noted that where we have had the opportunity to conduct these post training interventions, participants have demonstrated greater success in skills adoption/behavioural change. I.e. where there is additional support and monitoring of progress towards these goals in coaching as well as the reinforcement and opportunity to revise programme learnings after a period of time has lapsed post training, there is better long term assimilation of skills.
LifeLine Corporate offers two forms of Coaching and Mentoring Interventions:
- Individual Standardized coaching
- This is offered to participants on a 1:1 basis with a LifeLine Coach. This form of coaching is for employees who are struggling to cope in the workplace or those who need a mentor to guide them with problems which may arise in the workplace as well as control and become aware of their own emotions, tone of language and the way in which they respond to others in order to help achieve successful career goals in the workplace.
- This is also earmarked for newly appointed entry level and middle management who require assistance with their leadership styles and achieving career goals.
- We recommend 6 coaching sessions allocated to these key employees to give them sufficient time to achieve the goals set in coaching. Cost on Request
- Before coaching, a meeting is held between the coach and manager/team leader to conduct a needs assessment and best suited intervention for the individual. This will help to determine the recommended number of coaching sessions and matching a suitable coach to the participant.
- Individual mentoring post training
- This coaching intervention is offered to participants who have participated in one of our training courses and want to ensure entrenchment of learnings from the classroom training back into the workplace. Participant feedback from corporate training’s have indicated that while the training programmes are enlightening and practical the limited time available for classroom training makes it pressurized as there is a lot of new knowledge and behavioural change to assimilate within a limited time space (Companies cannot take employees away from their workforce too long), therefore there is too short a time frame to allow for behavioural changes required and the assimilation of skills into their new style of engagement with others.
- Time is also required to evaluate the programme and assess their progress towards meeting their goals. Thus a “check-in” with the participants is highly recommended as a way forward and as well as to also see what’s working, what they can improve on and what challenges they have faced. For post training interventions we recommend 2-3 sessions per participant.
It is important to note that whilst LifeLine Johannesburg offers counselling services, we DO NOT offer any counselling during the individual coaching session. Should we feel that content may extend further than the coaching/mentoring has to offer, this will be referred to your Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) or contact LifeLine for more information regarding our in-house EAP.
No personal information will ever be divulged back to management or fellow colleagues. All content remains STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL between the coach and client. This will be discussed further in contracting and boundary set up.
