3. New Process Replacing the Coaching Development Plan

Effective immediately (February 2018), GROVEWELL’s IDP coaches are no longer expected to complete a Coaching Development Plan as part of their coaching process. Case by case exceptions are being made for coaches who now are in the process of completing a CDP.

The decision to replace the CDP was made jointly by J&J’s IDP Office and GROVEWELL. All of us shared the belief that the CDP, with its multiple little boxes into which designated types of information were to be inserted, was constraining and time-consuming for coach and coachee (and for GROVEWELL!), and was distracting from the highest goals of GLC coaching.

On the other hand, one of the basic missions of J&J’s IDP Office is to monitor and insure the global leadership development of each IDP participant, of which GROVEWELL’s coaching is an integral part. That mission necessitates the Office’s receiving information about each IDP’s progress towards that end. The new process preserves the Office’s access to such information.

The new process consists of three steps:

  1. Early Focus Areas: No change; click here for link.
  2. Half-Way Goal-Alignment Check-In: New: See immediately below.
  3. Summary of GLC Development Gains: New: Click here for link.

Step 2: Half-Way Goal-Alignment Check-In:

About half-way through the nine hours of GLC coaching, you and your IDP coachee will collaborate on preparing responses to three questions. Note that the questions are addressed to the IDP coachee. The three questions are:

  1. How are you and your coach progressing with your EFAs?
  2. What actions have you taken so far to work on your focus areas?
  3. Is there anything that needs to be added or adjusted?

The coachee’s responses, jointly prepared by the two of you, should be sent to Josephine, who will send them on to Willa for review. If Willa has questions or concerns, she will get back to you. The responses are then forwarded to the coachee’s IDP Manager. We will contact you if the Manager has questions or concerns.

It is likely that the IDP Manager will have no questions or concerns. Therefore, please proceed with your GLC coaching.

We are not providing templates or samples of responses to these three questions (although we might in the future). The format of the questions is straightforward, so collaborate with your IDP coachee on three answers, then submit them to Josephine. That’s it!

Step 3: Summary of GLC Development Gains:

Near the end of your GLC coaching, you and your IDP coachee will collaborate on preparing a “Summary of GLC Development Gains” in terms of the gains or results that your coachee has attained through your GLC coaching. Please adhere to the following process:

Next-to-last coaching session: During your penultimate coaching session, you and your IDP coachee will discuss the extent to which the IDP has attained the goals identified in the EFA document, subject to any modifications that might have been made at the time of the Half-Way Goal Alignment Check-In.

Following the next-to-last coaching session: You or your coachee will draft the report entitled “Summary of GLC Development Gains.” Regardless of who prepares the initial draft, the report should be written in the “coachee’s voice” (so that the words “I” and “me” refer to your IDP coachee).

(Ideally, the coachee should draft this summary report. We are allowing for the possibility that you will draft this report simply because it might be more efficient for you to do so.)

Last coaching session: You and your coachee will review the draft Summary and make changes and additions as necessary. We expect you, the coach, to make the final changes following the last coaching session. Then send the “Summary of GLC Development Gains” to Josephine, who will forward it to Willa for review. If Willa has questions or concerns, she will get back to you. The responses are then forwarded to the coachee’s IDP Manager. We will contact you if the Manager has questions or concerns.
