5 Steps to Integrating Coaching into Your Talent
1. Educate your leaders. Start at the top and educate your
executives on the differences and benefits of coaching
versus counseling. Interview them on their perspectives on
coaching and assess their willingness to participate in and
support a coaching initiative. Explain the benefits of
coaching and ask them where they see applications for
coaching inside the organization.
2. Identify coaches, participants and executive
Look for individuals and managers who can be trained to become
internal coaches inside your company. These individuals may be inside
your talent management and organizational development areas. Consider

3. Manage expectations.
Be sure to clearly set expectations with your internal coaches, individuals
being coached, the executive sponsors and, of course, your managers and
colleagues. It is best to run the initial program as a pilot and build upon
its success. Make certain everyone is clear on the goals of the program,
the time commitment, and their roles and responsibilities.
En-roll your internal coach candidates in a coach-training program
ensure they’re being coached by someone with experience coaching
internal coaches. In addition, be sure to train the individuals who are to
be coached on the role and responsibilities of the participant. While
training your coaches, be sure to establish a clear and consistent process
for enrolling clients, coaching time and exiting clients. The key here is to
ensure that everyone participating has a similar experience.
5. Measure success.
Prior to starting the program, determine how you will measure its
success. It may be done simply by using a net promoter score or setting
up a simple impact study. It doesn’t have to be a rigorous measurement
such as a return on investment. If your program is embraced and utilized
(meaning that coaching clients show up and participate in the coaching),
then that’s a great sign. Interviewing them or surveying them on the
benefits they received once the coaching is completed is also an excellent
idea. In addition, be sure to ask the managers of the program’s
participants about the changes they may have noticed in their employees’
behaviours after being coached.
