One option in professional development is coaching. Coaching takes place when a more experienced individual engages with an employee to guide and support growth. There can be different coaches or coaching methods for different developmental needs – for example, a coach may assist in the learning of a new skill, in correcting a performance issue, and/or in the development of interpersonal skills.
MCE provides coaching in the following areas.
Executive Coaching is the engagement of a coach to enhance the effectiveness of senior leaders. The goal is to guide them in a range of areas from strategic matters to developing their leadership presence to enhancing communication skills.
Leadership Coaching focuses on helping leaders from supervisors to middle management recognize the competencies and “soft” skills they need to enhance and usually results in a leadership development plan.
Integrated Coaching is ‘wrap around’ coaching. It is provided once an assessment has been completed. The goal is to help the individual reflect and understand feedback provided by others through the use of a 360-assessment tool. The coach will work with the individual to establish an improvement plan.
Performance-Based Coaching results when goals and objectives are not being met. There is a laser focus on a specific area or two, usually a behaviour but often a skill, and can be part of a performance improvement plan and/or progressive discipline.
MCE 360 is our custom, in-house developed assessment tool that is based on 13 essential competencies for success in leadership. An essential requirement for our FRL Acceleration course that can also be administered on a stand-alone basis. A great segue into individualized coaching sessions.
We have a selection of facilitators certified in one or more of the following assessment indicators:

Personality Dimensions® uses four colours along with short descriptors and symbols to represent the Temperament preferences: Inquiring Green, Organized Gold, Authentic Blue, Resourceful Orange. These combined aspects create a common language of understanding of yourself and others.
The Myers–Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI) is an introspective self-report questionnaire indicating differing psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions. The test attempts to assign four categories: introversion or extraversion, sensing or intuition, thinking or feeling, judging or perceiving.
