According to Harry Levinson (former Harvard University professor, author, and Director of the Levinson Institute), coaching is one of the most uncomfortable, avoided, and mishandled leadership responsibilities of all.

So if that holds true for most managers, what is the solution to making it easier for leaders to coach, thereby making team members and organizations more successful?

At CMOE we believe that in order for leaders to feel comfortable and confident with coaching, they have to have a simple road map, or process, that allows them to have one-on-one, honest coaching discussions in formal and informal settings and with all types of coaching situations.

Coaching is powerful because it is a communication process that can be utilized with all types of coaching discussions including:

  • Improving performance and overcoming problems or issues
  • Building alignment and commitment to new strategies or goals
  • Developing, teaching, and motivating people who are ready and have potential to grow
  • Reinforcing positive behaviors and recognizing current achievements.

Some popular Coaching models are geared towards coaching for growth, but coaching is so much more than that.  Most often, managers find themselves coaching average performers who need to elevate performance.

Over 500,000 managers have discovered that CMOE’s TIPS2™ Model is a practical “road map” for the coaching opportunities they face every day.   What makes Coaching TIPS2™ such an effective tool and solution is that it helps coaches drive performance in a very practical way.

We think and research shows that the Coaching TIPS2™ Model is a practical solution to making coaching more comfortable and helps individuals and organizations maximize their potential, address challenges, and generate bottom-line results.

So what is Coaching TIPS2™ exactly?  The Coaching TIPS2™ Model and workshop is the most trusted and timeless coaching solution in the market and is designed to provide participants with a solid foundation on which to build their coaching skills.

The Coaching TIPS2™ Model is the result of years of research and development by CMOE.  For over three decades, the Model and workshop has been delivered to organizations worldwide and is used as a performance-improvement and development Model for leaders and individual contributors at all levels of the organization.

It is designed to provide participants with a solid foundation on which to build their coaching skills.  The focus of the Coaching TIPS2 workshop and its tools is on helping leaders be more effective as they interact and communicate with not only their direct reports, but with their peers and superiors as well.

The beauty of the Model is in its simplicity and easy-to-remember acronym.  The emphasis is on the process side of a typical coaching conversation, not the content side. Today’s modern leaders need tools that make leadership and management responsibilities easier, not more complicated so the Model itself is effective because the skills, tools, and job aids are practical and useful.

Instead of seeing coaching as uncomfortable and something to avoid, let’s help today’s leaders develop their coaching skills so they can take an active role in creating a successful and sustainable culture of coaching that is ingrained in the very fabric of their organizations.
