Kintla® views coaching as a collaborative process in which leaders use feedback from others in combination with their own observations to assess their existing patterns and shift them. The goal of this process is to create sustainable personal change. Our process supports both established executives and emerging leaders as they increase productivity, improve creativity, and avoid the emotional tripwires that can derail their performance.
A Neurobehavioral approach to coaching
The way we work is changing. The way we coach must match up. Kintla's coaching philosophy considers virtual work environments, cross-cultural teams, telecommuting, overloaded schedules, technology stress, and the blurred line between work and personal life.
At Kintla®, coaching is a collaborative process that begins with understanding what changes need to be made and ends with a plan for sustaining new patterns without direct coaching. Skills for sustaining the change trajectory are built into every step.
Unique features of Kintla’s approach
Three-Dimensional Assessment Model
Leaders consider their strengths and opportunities for improvement using self-assessment, input from others, and a summary of past feedback which is used to plot their personal trend over time. Feedback is viewed as a series of snapshots from the past that reveal the developing image of a leader's impact.
Daily Operating Rhythm (DOR)
Leaders complete a Daily Operating Rhythm analysis to identify ways of embedding new practices into ongoing patterns. Through Daily Operating Rhythm, small, manageable shifts in behavior repeated over time make a significant impact. Leaders also learn to utilize Daily Operation Rhythm after formal coaching for continuing change.
The Power of Reflection
Leaders become skilled at codifying and reflecting on their experiences. Increased sensitivity to experiences in the moment helps them take in feedback and adapt their Daily Operating Rhythm as they work. Reflection is positioned as a powerful tool for continued learning and change after formal coaching.
Neuroscience and Personal Change
Leaders learn and apply thinking from the areas of neuroscience and behavior change to optimize their effectiveness and avoid emotional “tripwires.” Kintla’s TripleRC℠ approach makes neuroscience practical by focusing on four important tools: Recognition, Regulation, Reflection and Change℠.
