A proven, results-oriented process for business coach training. Leave a legacy: use what you’ve learned during your career to help other organizations become more successful.
Many executives arrive at a point in their career when they start to think about helping others benefit from what they’ve learned. After 20+ years of experience, you begin to see fundamentals behind what works and what doesn’t in successful organizations. These insights aren’t “book smarts” – they’re the result of struggles with critical cash flow concerns, tough people problems, marketing challenges, sales hurdles, growth pains and technology tangles. Regardless of the subject, you’ve learned a lot that you could use to empower others.
If this sounds like you, perhaps you should investigate using the Six Disciplines program to help other organizations achieve greater success – by becoming a Six Disciplines coach.
The most important attribute Six Disciplines coaches share is their desire to help the people they serve. All our senior coaches come out of careers as CEOs or top-level executives. Because we’re very selective in certifying coaches, there is a special camaraderie based on mutual respect for the depth and breadth of experience each coach brings to the group. This creates an open, sharing community with the common goal of taking care of the customer first.
Our coaches bring this service commitment to every engagement, providing objective input to complement internal management and provide a broader perspective than those engaged in the day-to-day operations.
The Six Disciplines coaching model provides the greatest income potential to those coaches who do what they love: become a trusted advisor to customers by building enduring and evolving relationships. A lasting relationship can only develop when real value is delivered through a high-trust exchange, achieved the old fashioned way: through honesty, integrity and hard work. You have to earn the right to ask the hard questions at the right time and to step up as a confidante on private, difficult issues. Coaches can earn a low to mid- six figure income if they can build a few high-quality customer relationships where engagement in the Six Disciplines program is broad, deep and lasting.
The foundation of the Six Disciplines program is our methodology, which organizes tested and powerfully effective best-practices into a step-by-step approach for crafting strategy and managing execution. As part of the coach training process, we come along side you and field-certify you in the use of this methodology. This gives you a structured way to help organizations work on their business, and also provides a framework for strengthening your mentoring value.
Much of what is in the Six Disciplines methodology is common sense and is based on other best-practices. The difference is, we’ve researched, revised, tested, and organized all of this into one coherent process. This streamlines your role as a coach, while lowering the customer’s cost of implementing the Six Disciplines program.
The Six Disciplines Excellence program contains much more than a methodology. Supported by three legs of a “stool”, this methodology is the foundation of a robust excellence program.
The first leg of the stool is coaching, which includes the coaching you provide to the strategy (leadership) team as well as the internal cascading coaching which you have built and choreographed.
The second leg of the stool is the software, which provides performance management, goals management, and plan management applications. The software suite streamlines and simplifies the customer’s use of the excellence program by establishing metrics, gathering data and tracking progress.
The third leg is an integrated leadership development program designed for year round, on-the-job development of leadership competencies including self-leadership for the client’s individual employees.
The Six Disciplines methodology, combined with its coaching, software, and leadership development provides a comprehensive platform that is flexible, customizable and thus applicable to a wide range of clients/industries. As a Six Disciplines coach, you’ll have the flexibility to decide what types of customers to serve, what types of industries to focus on, and how many customers you are willing and able to serve.
With all of the pressures successful business leaders have today, none is more urgent or challenging than learning the ability to execute strategy. The thought-leading vision described by Gary Harpst in Six Disciplines® Execution Revolution sets a new course for how small and midsized businesses can finally confront the never-ending challenge of executing strategy.
