A complete career services system, utilizing a client-centered, performance-based approach to career/life development and management. The system is employed to define an appropriate starting point for career services and coaching delivery, thereby allowing for the targeted development of effective client strategies to ensure career success.
The only practical career services method you will ever need for coaching and training delivery!
The CoachCompass® system is based on the client-centered, counseling theory aligned with the clinical counseling work of Carl Rogers, and supports that each individual being served individualistically and uniquely in response to where they are and what they want to achieve in their present position or situation affords a more consistent approach and measurable outcome to coaching services, organizational development and succession planning.
The various components of the CoachCompass® system can be employed alone or in concert as a linear process of personal development and growth for youth and adults. For mature adults, it serves to identify career patterns and competencies that require further specific development for career progression.
The success of this system lies within the identification of the internal competencies of self-esteem, personal talent development and role identification, as integrated with the external competencies of productivity, success and achievement. For the coach/counselor/career services professional, it provides:
- an easy and accurate starting point
- appropriate assessments, instruments, indicators
- best approaches, processes or strategies
- better performance measurement and ROI
- optimum job match, development and retention
The CoachCompass®serves as: a situational identifier, determining the immediate, priority needs of a client; a measuring stick, allowing the coach/counselor/career services professional to determine the willingness of the client to do the work required to achieve the preferred outcome. In brief, the system allows an effective coaching process to occur by developing the necessary partnership with the client.
The CoachCompass® allows for: the appropriate monitoring of the activities/strategies that are identified, permitting the client to see the concrete actions that need to take place via an action map. The client can then choose to engage or disengage the coach/client relationship as appropriate to changing needs and achieved benchmarks.
The CoachCompass® has the potential to determine: the readiness of the client for the scope of work involved, clearly identifying each partner’s responsibility within the relationship; appropriateness for hire; readiness for development or training; assurance of retention; overall an excellent corporate individual or employee development planning tool.
Beyond the identification of tools, strategies or processes, the CoachCompass® recommends suggested “competency goals” for each position/situation. The system remains open and elective for the coach/counselor/career services professional, thereby allowing for choice and professional consideration as to what components are used: broadly or specifically as the coach chooses.
The CoachCompass® is the first practical system of its type that progresses the coaching and counseling theories of 30 years past into the future. It is the “tool of all tools,” in that it establishes a starting point for the provision of services, identifies suggested real world strategies and maps action plans using existing tools and instruments accessible via the WEB.
Designed specifically for Career Coaches, Counselors, and Career Services Professionals, it has the capacity to serve any professional offering guidance to individuals in the areas of Career/Life Integration: Career Planning, Career Development, Career Management and Career Transitions. Highly effective for those in professional, academic, collegiate, governmental environments or for private practice coaching, the system provides an ideal backdrop for the partnered collaboration between the client and coach, allowing for a thorough map to be drawn with clear expectations and delineated actions throughout. Action plans are employed for documentation of the processes, contribution to the client file and take-aways for the client’s use.
The CoachCompass® system is easily employed within the coaching/counseling process by using the visual representation of the model, which is accompanied by an easy to use guidance table. The Coach Profiler, provides descriptive overviews and includes case studies, assessment tools and profiles. The Coach Navigator contains strategies and appropriate assessment tools aligned with quadrants, hemispheres and affiliates. The Coach Map allows for creation of a customized action plan. It can be easily learned and applied by even a novice coach.
Note: Unlike traditional assessments, the diagnostic used within this system refrains from categorizing the person in a static position, indicating the present situational starting position or standpoint in which to choose the most appropriate career services, strategies and tools.
