Assignment Overview

Closure and Review


The purpose of the Case Assignment is to create a “Live Case” by experiencing the process of coaching.  Because this case is designed around experiential learning , we can go beyond the conceptual knowledge covered in the reading materials to actual skills building.  This requires putting what you are learning into immediate practice.

In this fourth module, you will be working with your coachee to close the coaching session and determine the next phase of your relationship.  Will you terminate the relationship or move on to a new coaching experience?  A part of this process is soliciting feedback from your coachee as to how successful the coaching sessions were.

· What did the coachee learn?

· How will the coachee deal with people and situations differently?

· What priorities have been set and what still needs to be accomplished?

One outcome of this session is to come to a mutual decision of whether to terminate the coaching relationship or continue to work together on a new coaching issue.  Drawing on the background reading for this and the previous modules, you will plan and carry out a coaching session that involves stage W of the GROW model.

There is a comprehensive explanation of the GROW model on the background page for Module 2. Here is a link to a shorter synopsis for review:

The structure of the Live Case NOTE:  This module also includes an extra activity to be completed by the coachee and submitted as an appendix to your usual paper.

Each module will follow this cycle:  Plan, execute, report.

· Before the coaching session, write up a plan using course readings or additional research as a resource (1-2 pages).

· Then meet with the coachee and use your plan as a guide for the session.

· The bulk of the report is on how it went: successes and failures.  What would you do differently next time?  (3 to 5 pages).

Preplanning Action Reflection
What are your goals for the session?

What actions do you plan?

How will you know if you are successful? (1-2 pages).

Meet with coachee (45-50 minutes). Report on the session.

Provide a narrative descriptive summary of the conversation as it occurred (1 or 2 paragraphs).

How do you feel the session went?

Analyze the process and outcomes of your coaching.

What new knowledge did you gain?

What would you do differently next time?

Click on this copy of the Coachee Feedback Assessment Form .   You can use this form in one of two ways:

· You may have your coachee fill this out as a “homework” assignment prior to your meeting, or

· You can use the assessment form to structure your feedback session by typing your coachee’s answers as you hold your wrap-up session.  In this last case, it is a good idea to email the finished completed form to the coachee so he can have a reminder of what was accomplished.

· Either way, be sure to include the feedback form as an attachment to your paper.

Conduct your final coaching session as described above and write it up as detailed in the keys to the assignment and the assignment expectations.

Module 4 – SLP

Special Cases in Coaching

Share Your Leadership Growth Plan


Now that you have created a plan it is time to share it with your supervisor, get some feedback, and ask for his or her help in putting it into action.  You may do this by setting up a meeting with your supervisor or mentor (if you have one) and making a presentation based on all of the work you have done in this SLP. At the end of your presentation, you should have a discussion with your supervisor as to implementing the plan and receiving the resources you will need.

· A personal assessment:  Your values, leadership style, motivators, and competencies
