Leadership Development

Coach Yourself to Win

About the Program

The “Coach Yourself to Win” program is designed to help future leaders throughout an organization develop to their full potential by providing them with the capabilities needed to take responsibility for their own growth and development. As organizations attempt to green the next generation of leaders in a time of significant constraints, this program equips future leaders to take command of their own careers and develops bench strength throughout the organization.

Guttman’s self-coaching approach gives organizations the capability to continuously develop talent, while setting the organization up to win big in the future. Besides being a cost-effective way to develop talent, a self-coaching program for numerous high potentials creates a pool of synergy among future leaders that cannot be duplicated by individual mentoring. As they go through the process, self-coachees, many of whom work together on a daily basis, form a strong bond and, in fact, become coaches to one another.

Participants will be introduced to Guttman’s dynamic 7-step self-coaching process. They will learn and apply each step, from determining their self-coachability to setting their Intention, from soliciting and analyzing feedback to developing an action plan and tracking progress. This will provide them a clear, proven pathway to personal and professional success.

Based on the executive-coaching model that Guttman has used with senior managers for more than 30 years, the process has been adapted for use by anyone who wants to take his or her career to the next level.  The self-coaching process is featured in the book, Coach Yourself to Win, by Howard M. Guttman.
