“Last Chance Coaching

When a client asks if you’ll coach an employee as a final intervention before they are terminated, do you accept?

The stakes are high, the confidentiality is complicated by the sponsor’s role, success may not be possible, and your client did not opt in to coaching.

This presentation overviews the challenges, best practices, and core competencies used in offering coaching as a last chance intervention.

In this interactive presentation, you will learn how to:

  • Identify the challenges and risks of Last Chance Coaching
    • Establishing the Coaching Agreement (How can you determine a successful engagement for client and sponsor?)
    • Building Trust and Intimacy with the Client (How do you build trust with your client when they did not opt in and termination is already on the table?)
  • Establish structures and best practices for Last Chance Coaching
    • Establishing the Coaching Agreement (What do you need to establish a coaching agreement that serves all parties?)
    • Building Trust and Intimacy (How do you build trust and intimacy with both parties given the sensitivity of the situation?
    • Direct Communication (Last Chance Coaching tests your ability to communicate directly, clearly, and with compassion to the challenging dynamics between the client and sponsor)
  • Strengthen ability to leverage ICF Core Competencies in challenging coaching scenarios
    • Ethics and Standards (Maintaining your role and confidentiality)
    • Coaching Presence (How do you ensure you are staying in your role as coach and not moving towards consulting, managing, or mentoring?)

Grow your coaching business. If you or a colleague are interested in learning more about the Last Chance Coaching, you will want to REGISTER for this event!  If you are not able to attend the event a recording will be available for registered participants after the session.
