AAI’s Coaching Winners! process involves five steps:

  • Assessment.  An analysis of the individual’s competencies and behavioral styles.  This can include AAI’s multi-rater 360° Assessment, the Work Behavior Inventory Development Report, use of behavioral questionnaires, 360° interviews and/or direct observation.
  • Action Planning.  The creation of a focused Individual Development Action Plan.  The manager and coach work together to develop this focused and highly-relevant plan of action.
  • Coaching Sessions.  One-on-one coaching sessions by highly seasoned coaches can be arranged.
  • Phone Consultation.  The availability of the coach on an as-needed basis helps connect the initial Coaching Sessions and Progress Update Sessions.
