eCoachPro is on a mission to make coaching more effective, efficient and accessible to a larger audience, by using technology and facilitating the natural way in which people learn and develop. The company’s quality coaching and leadership development practices is proven and have a great success rate, which enables them to deliver consistent results and enhance the return on the time and investments.
According to Marc Coenen, Commercial Director, eCoachPro, “Learning is not only the formal education that is inculcated during training days, but an ongoing process that takes place incessantly.” Learning is defined in several ways, but the bottom line is, it is a relatively permanent change in behaviour that results from experience and helps in leadership development.
With regard to leadership development within big organisations, learning and development need to take place on a regular basis, be personalised for everyone, be supported and guided by a professional coach or mentor, and be applied on a continuous and frequent basis. Today, the loophole of many leadership development programs is their effectiveness and a low transfer of training, which doesn’t make an intended impact on the professionals participating in those programs. When it comes to applying the learnings from training programs in their day-to-day work, employees find it challenging and is often suppressed due to workloads or old habits.
“We have deduced from psychological research how people learn and develop skills, and that’s what we realise and facilitate using technology. What we do at eCoachPro really mimics the natural way people learn, develop new skills and realise behavioural changes,” says Coenen.
In order to create a higher impact of the training programs, Europe-based eCoachPro has designed a methodology, a GDPR compliant coaching platform and international coaching powerhouse to facilitate the natural way people learn. eCoachPro specialises in providing innovative leadership development programs which are powered by its academically supported methodology coupled with blended coaching.
eCoachPro’s learning programs are made up of modern training formats, learning and virtual check-ins, creating a continuous and personalised learning journey for the participants. Along with onsite training modules and virtual check-ins, a typical eCoachPro program has continuity in between the training modules, use an online learning platform, assignments with continuous blended coaching throughout the program. The inclusion of online blended coaching ensures tremendous growth in learning and individual development as compared to conventional program designs.
Most of the solution providers available in the market offer standalone offline leadership development programs without individual coaching and without measuring their effectiveness. eCoachPro is unique in this aspect and deliver programs with both, group and individual elements as online as well as offline components. The combined offline and online leadership development program helps participants to apply their learnings in their day-to-day work life.
Our mission is to continue making leadership development programs and coaching accessible to people all around the world, regardless of their location and position
Also, the participants’ performance is evaluated and measured during the course of the program, making the training insightful for participants and clients. “We are innovative, agile and flexible, and align easily with the clients’ need. At eCoachPro, we deliver A to Z programs or only the coaching element in existing programs delivered by other service providers,” says Coenen.
With its expertise, inimitable approach and collaborative attitude, eCoachPro works in close liaison with consultancy firms, various business schools, and universities. When a large international port-infrastructure organisation was in need of a leadership development program to empower its leaders, it approached eCoachPro. After engaging in several design sessions, eCoachPro created an effective leadership development program for the client. The program continued for a few months, which was composed of onsite training modules for in several countries, online modules, casework, and integrated online coaching. This continuous learning experience helped participants grow, both as an individual and as a leader. As a result, the participants experienced more well-being and were more capable to deal with the fast-changing world and be a strategic leader. Also, they had more fun in their jobs and were happier.
Another organisation that benefitted from eCoachPro’s leadership development programs was a large international bank. The legal department team of the bank wanted to grow their interpersonal trust level and create a culture of feedback, high team performance. eCoachPro conducted several design sessions in which it co-created a program that consisted of focussed training modules and individual online power-coaching. After the program, the interpersonal trust levels within the bank’s team became better, more feedback was given, and the overall performance of the team improved. eCoachPro’s co-creation, flexible and effective working methods proved remarkable for the company in helping the bank accomplish its desired goals.
Moving forward, eCoachPro is looking at tremendous opportunities in leadership development programs such as combining online coaching and training with technological opportunities to deliver high impact leadership programs, improving the transfer of training and individual professional growth.“We will continue to work with new methods and constantly improve our way of working,” highlights Coenen.
One leadership development program can make an enormous difference in an individual’s life. At eCoachPro, the belief is that every professional deserves to benefit from leadership development programs in order to raise self-awareness and become happier both as an individual as well as professional. The company is exploring various ways to make leadership development accessible to people beyond top-segment leaders.
Because of the online nature of its leadership development programs, delivery of eCoachPro’s programs is not restricted to a single geographical location. Currently, the company is training and coaching leaders from a large international institutional agency, who are spread across the world, mostly in remote locations. Due to eCoachPro’s online approach, they can access the leadership development programs from any part of the globe. “Our mission is to continue making leadership development programs and coaching accessible to people all around the world, regardless of their location and position,” concludes Coenen.
