The Prosperity Agenda offers a comprehensive approach for organizational adoption of FCC, launched and led by a facilitated Coaching Accelerator, understood and practiced through applied learning (both online and in-person), and sustained and mastered though a community of practice.
Coaching Accelerator: For Leadership
Our overall experience with coaching has revealed that implementation challenges begin not with training, but with adopting and sustaining a coaching culture and operations–from practice to supervision to funding. To address these challenges, a facilitated Coaching Accelerator leads a process to integrate coaching into your organization.
Online Learning: For Staff at All Levels
This six week online learning journey combines online classes, self-guided assignments, and a final group project. Leadership, managers, and practitioners attend the same weekly online classes as part of multiple small learning groups. Viewing the the material through their role, each person contributes to the bigger picture of FCC adoption. Groups meet virtually and independently to complete and discuss the week’s topic assignment and build towards a final project.
In-Person Learning: For Coaches & Managers
Over two days, this intensive training for up to 30 participants is facilitated by two experienced coaching trainers. (Larger groups can be accommodated by additional trainers and/or additional training groups.) Coaches and their managers learn together how to build coaching relationships, apply coaching skills, and use FCC tools.
- Day 1 Developing & Practicing FCC Skills, Understanding Stages of Change, Preparing Your Self & Environment for Coaching, and Bringing Family into the Coaching Conversation.
- Day 2 Facilitating a Discussion of Family Priorities, Deciding Which Role to Play, Facilitating Goal Setting & Practice, and Continued Practice of FCC Skills.
Community of Practice: For Coaches & Managers
To maximize and extend the benefits of coaching training, coaches need space to practice their skills. FCC is a shift in mindset, practice, and relationships, which takes time and support to develop. A community of practice (CoP) is dedicated space and time for coaches to learn from each other and their managers. Our CoP is centered on feedback about how participants experience coaching, allowing coaches to fine tune practice based on what is most impactful to families. A custom toolkit includes the agenda, activities, and evaluations. Supervisors receive continued support and mentoring to ensure a sustainable practice, and insight and data from coaches and participants also flows to the Coaching Accelerator.
