Engineers. Coders. Policy writers. Actuaries. Strategists. Medical researchers. Analysts. Technicians. In fact, any kind of subject matter expert or individual contributor.
They're some of your smartest people.
But you ask them to achieve the impossible.
Their idea is terrific, but the pitch doesn’t convince. The plan doesn’t fly. The level of influence required just isn’t there.
What can you do? The expert - and your organisation - has been let down by a lack of development of expertship skills.
Our flagship program, Mastering Expertship, is the first online coaching course focused on turning neglected technical specialists into organisational superstars.
Participants mix coaching, learning from expert peers, with concise, challenging pre- and post- work exercises that embed their learning.
Between coaching sessions, they try out the new techniques they’ve learned in their day-to-day work.
Every Mastering Expertship participant creates a Personal Growth Plan in collaboration with their manager and coach. Through the program, it’s continually updated with real-life actions the participant will take to take to embed their learning.
Pre- and post-work is always concise, achiveable exercises that embed learning. For instance, pre-work may ask the participant to spend a maximum of 20 minutes reflecting on how they personally delegate, or manage upward - then to add ideas for improvement to their action plan.
Mastering Expertship features regular three-way check ins and debriefs for the manager, coach, and participant.
There’s two benefits: participants don’t forget what their manager asked them to achieve - and managers are reminded to offer the participant lots of opportunity to embed new skills.
Don’t worry, our program management team and automated systems do all the logistics work of keeping sessions and pre/post work in sync.
Our client portal keeps you updated about the learning progress of your small groups, and their participants and action plans.
Mastering Expertship is often the first intensive coaching an expert has had. They’re flattered, inspired and challenged.
And their confidence and decision making benefit enormously from honest discussion with peers of their fears and expectations.
The Mastering Expertship program takes just 16 weeks, and you can test it by sending along a single expert.
