Bench Marking and Standards for Strategy Coaching

Strategy Coaching is a frequent reasonable adjustment brought in by employers to support people with dyslexia, dyspraxia, AD(H)D, ASD and other types of neuro-differences.  Research published by the British Psychological Society in 2013[1] demonstrated how often the following topics were requested by clients and managers:

 Most common coaching topics

This reflected what we at Genius Within had suspected for a while – that professional skills can be more important than literacy.  We decided to take a review of how we worked with this broad range. After noticing the lack of benchmarked standards for these skills, we have condensed it into a comprehensive, modular programme, endorsed by the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM). Clients chose their own modules to suit their needs from a list of core and optional topics.

ILM logoIt means that our coaching programmes have been quality benchmarked and externally verified, by the market leaders in professional training.  This supports ALL our clients.

Additionally, for just £75 plus VAT it means that the ILM will certify each coaching programme, confirming that the learner has met required grade of performance improvement in the workplace.  The best thing is that our current methods and the report writing that we already do is sufficient, and no extra work is required for our clients.

At last!  Some official recognition of the hard work our clients put in to their strategy coaching.
