Effective Partnerships – a coaching program for business partners

Program Description

Coaching for Effective Partnerships is a unique coaching offering for individuals who are leading a business together.  This program helps participants enhance their partnership towards a more productive and rewarding future.  We built this program based on our core beliefs of being in partnerhsip:

We believe
that a partnership can be defined as two or more people working together in relationship for the purpose of achieving a common goal.

We believe that in order to be in highly effective relationship with others, we must first work on ourselves.  We must first examine our own stories; we must build the awareness of our own behaviors, attitudes and habits that may be limiting our personal potential.

We believe that from awareness we can develop and grow into the best possible version of ourselves, and the best possible versions of ourselves tends to bring out the best possible versions of the people around us and we call this leadership.

We believe that when we are in relationship with others, we create a new identity, “The Relationship” which has the potential for its own history, its own story.  And the future of that relationship is a function of the strength and power of the individuals in it.

Program Overview

This is a six month program with three distinct elements:

1. Fundamentals of Leadership

This is a series of 12 bi-weekly coach-facilitated learning sessions with the clients and coaches. In these sessions, coaches will present leadership topics associated leadership presence, communication, and emotional intelligence. Participants will become proficient in these distinctions and begin to learn how to apply these elements in their work, both individually and when working in collaboration.

 2. Coaching the Individuals

During the first 3 months of the program, each participant will work with a personal coach and engage in 6 bi-weekly coaching sessions.  The objective of these sessions is to start to develop the personal awareness around each person’s reactive selves, or the default behaviors, attitudes and habits and examining their sources, and begin to establish new habits.  During this time, the participants are encouraged to share what they’ve learned with each other, leveraging the skills obstained during the Fundamentals of Leadership .

3: Coaching the Relationship

In the second part of the program, we will continue our work on individual growth and development in three monthly individual coaching sessions while layering in three monthly group coaching sessions.   In the group coaching sessions, we will work on facilitating conversations, exploring the “relationship’s story.”  We may also bring in additional models , practices, and resources to build upon the foundation of trust, intimacy, and communication.
