With our Coaching Calendar, it’s easy to plan and manage coaching for everyone on your team who’s critical to your success. You just add a session to the calendar and assign a coach. The system takes it from there, automatically notifying both the manager/coach and team member being coached, briefing the coach on your priorities for the session, and scheduling follow-up sessions on whatever timetable you choose.
Change can be difficult, especially when it involves breaking old habits and creating new ones. TV HeadCoach™ ups your odds of coaching real change by reminding team members of the goals and priorities you want top-of-mind — so that they will know how you want them to focus until the focus you want becomes second nature to them.
When you’re working with talent, our FastTrack feature will generate a list of recommendations based on critical performance goals. Select the ones you want your team member to master, and a quick click automatically adds those recommendations to their customized coaching page.
Feedback is the lifeblood of real and lasting change, and TV HeadCoach™ is built to support a culture of feedback in your newsroom. Followup coaching sessions can be scheduled on whatever frequency and timetable you want. Members of your management team can add general critiques or feedback on specific objectives. And team members can easily request feedback when they want to know how they are doing.
As coaching sessions progress, TV HeadCoach™ builds a history that keeps track of what’s been recommended to your team, when each recommendation was made and who made it. That’s good for lots more than improving performance. From a human relations standpoint, it means you always have a record of the attention you and your staff have given to each member of your team — just in case there is ever any question about your commitment and time invested in them.
TV HeadCoach™ will store pertinent contact information, links to prospects’ recent work, and make it easy for you to solicit feedback from other stakeholders in your decision-making chain. And it will automatically remind you when contract dates are approaching, so you never risk missing an opportunity because you were late to reach out.
