Sample Outlines of Corporate Coaching in Leadership:

  1. Personal Goal Setting

    • Goal setting is a powerful process for personal planning.

    • The process of setting goals helps you choose where you want to go in life. By knowing precisely what you want to achieve, you know where you have to concentrate your efforts. You'll also quickly spot the distractions that would otherwise lure you from your course.

    • More than this, properly-set goals can be incredibly motivating, and as you get into the habit of setting and achieving goals, you'll find that your self confidence builds fast.

    • A person's goals are established by two things namely core value and guiding principles.

    • Our core value is the very heart of our thinking that warrants our behaviors. This is the inner most thought we hold very dearly to ourselves. There are certain things that even if we are threatened we will not do. But there are also things that no matter how tough it is we will see to its completion. This value formed our identity.

    • Our guiding principles are the set of rules we adopt for ourselves to follow. Like core value our principles are not easily turn away by persuasion. We formed up our own principles by the type of person we want to be and this in turn formed our belief.


  2. Who am I?

    • Belief: Reality is the product of consciousness, it should be clear that a person's beliefs are very important because those beliefs define the limits of their experience in his life. Most humans currently live their lives in this world around the belief systems of others, be that of their parents', peers', mentors' or society's and because of this they unknowingly give up their ability and responsibility to define their reality and have control over their lives. With this in mind, it is very important that each individual comes to his/her own conclusions about all matters in general rather than blindly embracing the views of others.

    • Identity: Some people perceive the world with the information they receive from what they see from their eyes. When a someone wears an expensive watch or drives a luxury car, we associate them as being "rich". We focused what they are "having" and what they are "doing". So if we want to be labeled as "rich", we need to have expensive watch or luxury car. We coach individuals to first discover on the "being" state. Discovering by themselves the individual seeks to cultivate the type of person the want to be.

    • By living in the "being" state, the individual will take up certain actions and adopt certain belief. By focusing on the "being" state, the individual will then eventually start to be "having" and "doing" the things they want.


  3. G.L.A.M. System

    • The G.L.A.M. system is a cycle. It focuses on individual's goal and with a systematic procedures, it ensures that the goal becomes a reality. By reinforcing our inner abilities, it aims at coaching one not only to accomplish one's goal but to do it effectively and easily.

    • It has a 5 step-by-step procedures that enables an individual to do self checks within himself and also discover that not only is his goal achievable it is also within reach.

  5. G. L. A. M. System - Lightpost

    • Some call it checkpoints, some call it intervals; the story came from a Japanese marathon runner who run for the lightposts that are 1km apart; some also call it short term goals or small tasks.

    • It actually is the intervals that make up the long term (or intermediate) goals; stands alone by itself does not reflect the real meaning nor its real value when compare with linking all the miles that all the lightposts add up.

    • And as you go, our coach will help you overcome the hurdles you meet along the way in a fair, mature and balanced way. He or she works with you to monitor and support your progress towards your goals.

  6. G. L. A. M. System - Action

    • When the right direction is being pointed out, massive action must put into action; those who succeed accomplished their goals needs a lot of LUCK. Here it means LABOR UNDER CORRECT KNOWLEDGE or L.U.C.K.

    • If certain knowledge, skills, know-how, set of competence etc. yet being acquired, an sub-action plan needs to put in place; such as one's Individual Development Program or IDP.

    • The purpose of the action plan is to accomplish all the tasks that lies between the lightposts; by accomplishing all the tasks along the checkpoints will one closes all the gaps that separate where one is now and where one wants to become.


  7. G. L. A. M. System - Measurement
