Frequently asked questions

How is the coach briefing customized?
Our coach briefings are extremely comprehensive. First, coaches are briefed specifically on your organizational and program objectives. This intensive preparation includes not only detailed training, but also joint webinars in collaboration with HR and the coaches. These structured measures ensure that the coaches are optimally prepared for their role in this program and that the coaching session achieves the desired objectives.
How are the employee surveys adapted?
Surveys are customized per default as they are designed with your employees' individual learning goals and challenges in mind. If desired, we are also able to offer 180 or even 360-degree surveys, so you can gain insights into individual development and program outcomes before and after the program.
How are the learning journeys customized?
Sharpist customizes learning journeys by adapting them to the organizational requirements and goals, incorporating the blended learning concept. For example, we can create a learning journey that starts with a comprehensive, customized onboarding - including tailored group coaching sessions, micro tasks and personal coaching sessions and concludes with a company-specific employee survey. Close collaboration with the HR team enables the creation of a flexible and targeted learning journey that not only meets current requirements, but also contributes to the strategic goals of the organization in the long term.
How are micro tasks customized?
The micro-tasks are designed specifically for each learner's individual goals and needs based on the selected focus areas. For example, at Palfinger, their leadership principles are linked to the Sharpist focus areas. This ensures customization of the micro-tasks so that they are directly aligned with the company's cultural principles and specific requirements.
How are group coaching sessions customized?
Our group coaching sessions are tailored to both team goals and individual challenges. The data obtained from the program on the focus areas then serves as the basis for adapting the group coaching. This promotes collaborative and effective development that is precisely tailored to specific needs.
How is the management summary customized?
The management summary is tailored to the metrics and goals of your program to enable meaningful analysis and continuous improvement.

More about coaching

Coaching is a transformative tool for personal and professional development. It differs from traditional teaching by fostering a collaborative partnership. In personal coaching, the focus is on life goals and well-being, while executive coaching enhances leadership and strategic thinking. Career coaching guides through career choices, and sports coaching boosts athletic skills.

Key techniques include active listening for deeper understanding, powerful questioning to inspire critical thinking, and setting SMART goals for clear action plans. Coaches provide accountability and feedback, driving motivation and progress.

The impact of coaching is substantial, leading to increased self-awareness, confidence, and clarity in goals. In organizations, it enhances leadership, team dynamics, and productivity, building a culture of continuous learning. Coaching is not just a present solution but an investment in future success, aiding individuals and organizations to navigate life's challenges and achieve their fullest potential.
