What is Coaching?

Our specificities

The coaching approach that we implement at Métamorphoses is to promote the effectiveness of the coaching journey by adapting it to the personality of the coachee. We adapt our coaching style, tools and tasks according to different personality profiles.

We use the MBTI and Process Communication Management to adapt our method of communication and coaching to the coachee. A purely cognitive work is often insufficient in coaching.

We approach the individual in a holistic way by integrating the three fundamental dimensions of self-development: mind, body and behaviour.

  • How will coaching be implemented in your company?

    The coaching process is structured in several stages:

    • Step 1: At a first meeting, the coach meets with the person concerned and the sponsor. The aim is to create a relationship of trust, define the work objectives, the framework and the respective responsibilities. This interview concludes with the signing of a tripartite coaching contract.
    • Step 2: The coaching sessions are organized on a regular basis, with an interval sufficient to allow a concrete implementation in real life situations. Each session ends with an action plan for the next one. Most interventions range from 5 to 10 sessions of 2 hours each.
    • Step 3: at the end of the sessions, a debriefing is planned with the coachee and his / her manager to: give feedback on the work accomplished, assess progress and define together the possible points of attention for the future.

     

     

  • Our coaching methodology

    Our methodology is structured around 4 axes:

    • G (Goals): the coach helps to clarify the problem and the objectives of coaching approach.
    • R (Reality): the coach accompanies the person in understanding the current situation and the obstacles encountered.
    • O (Opportunities): the coach explores and works out possible solutions.
    • W (Work): the coach supports the coachee in the implementation of solutions.

     

     

  • Intervention examples

    • A manager wanted to adapt his / her style of communication with his / her various collaborators: the work initially began with the awareness of his management style (which was directive); Then it consisted essentially of developing his listening, questioning and empathy. 
    • A CEO wanted to improve his management following several complaints from directors: coaching consisted of a first phase of self-observation; Then we were able to discuss the conception of the role of CEO in the company, consider the expectations of the management committee towards him; A thorough work on the motivation of the team, the importance of recognition and positive feedback was undertaken.
