How the program operates
The program includes:
Coaching is facilitated in two ways. First, there is a monthly webinar hosted by a TRM facilitator. This webinar, enables members to log on from their office or home and receive an update on group issues as well having access to the rest of the group for support and issue discussion.
In addition, each member has the choice between three levels of personal one-on-one coaching. There are three coaching levels:
Bronze: For monitoring progress between meetings and have a quick check in with a selected coach.
Silver: This level provides a fortnightly ‘check-in’ and may involve more than one coach.
Gold: This level is for those who require more focused attention to achieve their goals. Again, this may involve more than one coach. And for many, the benefits obtained from dedicated approach to improving skills in one of the eight areas has provided multiple times payback on the investment.
The recommended coaching mix will be discussed with members in the interview process.

"Conversations for Growth is an opportunity to grow in a number of areas. The program is well thought out and I especially like the 2 pillars approach; in particular the concept of building capacity using the 4 forms of energy. Conversations for Growth compares very favourably to other Executive Development programs I have been involved in and as a result I have included another member of my team in the program."
