Just like improving a golf game or learning to swing a baseball bat, the key to improving skills and changing behavior is ongoing, consistent practice coupled with follow up coaching. Workplace people skills are no different. With Executive Coaching, your Key Person will receive the structured focus and accountability to ensure implementation of maximization of your investment. Our Executive Coaching brings an ongoing methodology of support and implementation.
In our follow-up Executive Coaching program your Key Person will speak weekly or every other week with their coach to ensure implementation of the action plan made in the one-day training.
Results will be charted over the course of the three, six, or twelve month coaching engagement and the breakthroughs, insights, and skills obtained in our one day or group trainings will be consistently reinforced.
“My initial training with DBP was so helpful I wanted to keep going.
Ongoing Executive Coaching gives me the focus and follow up to ensure I implement what I learned.
It’s like my kids learning piano – regular weekly practice and lessons with the piano teacher is the formula for growing and learning new skills.”

Best Practice when combined with One-on-One Sensitivity Training following an incident. Make a commitment to actually changing problematic behavior by going beyond training and eduction. Coaching is about implementation and insuring new knowledge translates into action.
Incidents arise from behaviors that are often deeply ingrained and conditioned. Follow up coaching keeps the lessons of an individual training on the forefront of a trainees mind for weeks or months after an incident to enforce new behaviors.
Ongoing support and resource for your Key Person as they face the repetitive challenges of working differently with team members and particular co-workers. Provide a resource for your Key Person to roll-play and strategize about important interactions.
People skills are one of the most critical skills sets we can develop. Success achieved at work can largely depend on how well we understand ourselves and those with whom we interact.

Q: Is this “Therapy”?
