Shadow coaching is a powerful and effective tool used during coaching with executives, leaders and teams striving for excellence.
Shadow coaching is real-time coaching, observing work practices and communication flow at the place of work. It fundamentally means taking your coach to your work environment e.g. a (board) team or client meeting or presentation in real time and in a very real job environment. This greatly increases newfound awareness, which in turn enhances better work practices.
This coaching approach is a natural evolvement, reflecting parallel and constantly evolving work environments which leaders are expected to navigate through, with similar success expectations by different stakeholders to help transform business, people and processes. Shadow coaching supports particularly the understanding of the situation and helps in identifying what the real issues are. Do you want to be challenged and coached in real time?
Do you want to get unbiased, independent feedback, identify your strengths and areas for improvement in a 360degree environment? Do you want to close the gap between your actual and desired performance?
