A few years ago, Audrey and Nick were priming Stephanie and Vicki for C-suite positions to help manage the organization and take the heavy load off the Managing Partners. Together, we developed a leadership coaching program to get Stephanie and Vicki prepared for the challenges they would face as Chief Operations Officer and Chief Human Resources Officer. Audrey and Nick had full visibility into the curriculum, and Stephanie and Vicki had the opportunity and time to prepare for the responsibility being given to them. Today, both are thriving in their roles and are successfully managing the organization, taking a lot of the load off Audrey and Nick as owners.
Annual Training Program
At the end of each year, Human Resources partners with Core Impact Coaching to develop the upcoming year’s training and development plan for all team members who want to participate. The plans include things like book studies, Coaching Circles, and formal training on topics such as Six Sigma, Accountability, Setting Expectations, and Managing Conflict.
Fast Track Development Program
A training program developed for new hires or entry-level consultants, the Fast Track Development Program is a brilliant way for netlogx to invest in their new hires and accelerate their professional development. Associates of the program rotate through different projects and roles over the course of 18 months to three years, allowing them to gain experience in different areas of the company. As part of the program, Core Impact Coaching offers leadership training and develops a curriculum that will help advance the Fast Track associates to the next level.
Many graduates of this program have gone on to become senior consultants or lead projects. The program is appealing for new hires and shows netlogx’ care for investing in their people early and throughout their tenure at the company.
Open-Door Coaching Policy
One of the best things netlogx has done is instill a mindset of self-improvement and self-awareness, while also reinforcing that training can help better yourself and others. Audrey and Nick also knew that, without the right resources, team members might not know how to approach their development. That’s why they have offered everyone in the company, new hires and long-time employees alike, a coaching session at any time. Whether it’s conflict resolution, communication skills development, or trying to find a new way to solve a challenge, any team member can call and request a session.
Audrey and Nick also practice what they preach. They seek out coaching from numerous resources to help them develop as leaders and business owners.
