ADD coaching or facilitation for improved adoption and application
Our optional Engage, Empower and Empower+ programs catalyze adoption, drive application and improve leverage of Better Practice for participants through coaching and support.
Engage bundles the Accelerator Workshop with 3 months of coaching and on-call support with a certified Better Practice consultant for you and your team.
Empower bundles the Accelerator Workshop with a full 12 months of coaching and on-call support. With this option, support is extended to drive adoption and empower participants to improve their own application of Better Practice.
Empower+ bundles the Accelerator Workshop with 24 months of coaching and on-call support with a certified Better Practice coach.
The coaching included with Engage, Empower, and Empower+ most often involves bi-weekly or monthly touch-points by video conference. In these group sessions, participants engage in the practice of efficiently and effectively identifying what’s working, what’s not, and why it matters. With the support of a coach, participants clarify and commit to next steps, increasing the “stickiness” and building sustainable habits. The amount of coaching is adjusted to suit the needs of the participants.
With Engage, Empower and Empower+ options, on-call support is offered to participants who may have individual questions in between scheduled touch-points. This level of support encourages participants to ask questions and find individualized ways to adopt Better Practice.
