Sherri Rose & Associates provides customized coaching to support managers who are new to the job, who have hit a “behavioral wall,” or who must step up to the next performance level.
Begin with self-awareness and move to self-reflection
Some managers get a lot of feedback; most don’t get enough. In either case, they rarely have an opportunity to stop and reflect on what it means and how to use it to make changes and reach their goals. Sherri helps managers gather the feedback they need and make sense of what they hear.
Set goals and stay focused
As the old saying goes: If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will take you there. Sherri works with individuals and their managers to establish development goals that are focused on results as well as personal growth.
Ask good questions and provide ideas and solutions
Coaching is about asking questions that lead to self-discovery and change. While Sherri helps managers to help themselves, she provides ideas that move managers toward action.
A typical coaching engagement includes:
- Interviewing a cross-section of key individuals (360 process)
- Creating development goals
- Meetings with the coach, client, and his/her manager to confirm
support for the plan
- Bi-weekly coaching over multiple months, including preparing for upcoming events, reflecting on past actions, and practicing specific skills.
- Follow-up assessment
Sherri Rose & Associates designs meetings that help teams be more productive, including:
- Building clear and viable strategy
- Creating values and operating principles
- Clarifying roles, responsibilities, and processes
- Building trust
- Resolving conflict
Before designing a customized training program, Sherri works with companies to create a development strategy. The strategy is based on a careful assessment of the company’s current environment, capabilities, and future needs. Focused training gets results.
Design and Delivery
Sherri works with companies to match training designs to company needs. She specializes in responding quickly to these needs with training designs developed for the organization or customized from existing programs.
Her design and delivery are guided by these principles:
- Focus on practice using participants' on-the-job situations
- Provide useful and useable tips, tools, and concepts
- Respect what participants know and build upon it
- Create an environment of trust where participants can ask questions and help each other learn
- Never be boring and keep things moving with humor
