Coaching can Change Individuals
NOW AN INNOVATIVE WEB-BASED PROGRAM ALLOWS IT TO PERMEATE THROUGHOUT AN ORGANIZATION TO ACHIEVE LARGE-SCALE RESULTS

SAN DIEGO -- When representatives from more than 400 top companies gather in Arlington, Va. later this month, they will find more than the usual offering of speakers
and workshops.

Ken Blanchard—the world renowned coauthor of The One Minute Manager®—
and his son Scott, founder and CEO of Coaching.comTM?will introduce an innovative Web-based platform for delivering coaching that is the first of its kind in the world.

Coaching.com is an off-shoot company of The Ken Blanchard Companies that for more than 20 years has been recognized as a leader in the business of developing human capital. With strong roots in organizational development and innovative methodologies in learning and coaching services, Coaching.com proliferates the practice of coaching, but takes it to another dimension.

The Coaching.com web-based platform offers an element that most coaching programs cannot—scalability. Coaching.com takes the one-on-one coaching technique that traditionally has been used at the executive level, and spreads it throughout all levels of an organization. “Coaching has proven to be powerful at the individual level, but most coaching programs do not address overall organizational issues,” says the younger Blanchard. “We create large-scale impacts by linking individual progress to organizational strategies and goals,” he says.

Used in conjunction with focused telephone conversations, the proprietary Web-based platform allows coaches and clients to communicate effectively in one-on-one sessions and to integrate appropriate lessons from development programs that enhance leadership, teams, and service.

Personal comments and data that are gathered during these coaching conversations are not disclosed to others. However, the database-driven application aggregates trends, which allows the information to be shared with decision-makers without sacrificing individual confidentiality. "Now organizations get more than an invoice at the end of a coaching engagement,” says Blanchard.
“They get meaningful information that can help set objectives, drive decisions, and assess whether they are getting desired outcomes,” he says. "We believe that Coaching.com can help transform companies—one life at a time,” says Blanchard. “Business is built on relationships, and by developing the personal character of one individual, we can enhance a multitude of relationships. The results are far-reaching—and tangible.”

Blanchard explains that the new company provides organizational assessments before coaching initiatives begin, and a detailed analysis after they conclude. “That way our clients can see for themselves how coaching benefits the community they call a company,” says Blanchard.

Coaching.com will unveil its new Web-based platform at the fourth annual Coaching and Mentoring Conference that begins on April 30 at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington.

Ken Blanchard is a conference keynote speaker and will talk about the positive and empowering transformations of his own experience using a coach and how it has profoundly impacted his life.

Scott Blanchard will also speak, as will Madeleine Homan, the company’s Chief Coaching Officer who is also a founding member of the Board of the International Coach Federation.
