A diverse team of Managers was challenged to address an organizational "pain point". The specific concern was employee retention.
After a series of meetings, the team had gained little momentum, and a team member shared this observation:
"I regret that there has been little progress. The number of participants and the division of opinions has stalled the effort. Participants are not being objective and, in fact, are bringing a personal agenda."
The organization reached out to Kevin based on a referral, and he was asked to coach a small group of leaders in an effort to address the employee retention issue. At the conclusion of the engagement the following was noted by one of the participants:
"The effort was effective and efficient. To have a skilled facilitator who focused us on asking the right questions helped us to create an action plan. The original team right away focused on answers and that was, in part, what created the challenge and the division. The fact that Kevin is independent was a key. He really opened our eyes. I learned a lot."
Small group coaching is about advancing leaders in "real time".
What "pain points" are you dealing with?
Is there an effort that has stalled or that would benefit by engaging an independent resource?
