Drive agility with laser  focused  coaching                    

Laser focused coaching is so successful because breakthrough results happen when coaches stay out of the story and coach the person’s mindset and thinking, instead of solving the problem for them. Level-up your coaching skills and help clients or leaders solve their own problems by learning the laser-focused coaching method.

The Laser Coaching Technique

What is laser coaching?

Laser coaching model focuses on the person, and not the story - allowing for powerful insights to be quickly discovered by the clients themselves. 

We’ve found that internal organizational leaders are often naturally skilled at learning the laser coaching approach as they can easily reframe mindsets. They’ve learned that coddling sensitivities will lead to corporate politics and drama, so they want a method that keeps people focused on their work. They also know that solving problems for others only leads to dependence, so they see the benefit of staying out of the problem-solving to enable the coachee to advance their internal agility and balance, even in stressful situations.

As the workplace evolves, we believe that expensive personalized coaching should be reserved for high potential and top leaders. In order to cascade coaching skills throughout the culture, human resource professionals and team leaders themselves must learn to be effective coaches. They will benefit greatly by learning who is coachable and who should be directed using performance management instead. The Tilt master coaches plan to bring this important skill directly to those who lead or support teams.

There are many forms of coaching used by the coaching profession and by leaders in organizations. Highly trained professional coaches are usually practitioners of either action plan coaching or transformational coaching. Action plan coaching is generally what new coaches are practicing and helps provide support and accountability for simple habit change goals. Transformational coaching is much more complex and requires a deep understanding of the human psyche and the unconscious patterns that often drive surface behaviors and outcomes. Many years of advanced study and practice are necessary to help clients transform their underlying drivers to a more productive manifestation of their true intentions.

Laser coaching is a different approach from either of the practices mentioned above in some essential ways. Very experienced practitioners are often attracted to this method because it gets to the heart of the matter faster. For this reason, it can be beneficial for busy executives, but with one requirement. Since the method drives hard and quickly to the truth, it’s vital to ensure that both the coach and the executive have a healthy self-esteem. The approach is courageous and straightforward. Thus, ego-sensitivities can be triggered, and the coach needs to know how to process reactions quickly. For example, a revealed truth can trigger anger, and the coach must know how to help the client direct that anger productively into action, not blame.

The laser approach is designed to cut right to the issues and create a generative culture that allows top talent to work with agility and ease because it eliminates ego-drama and office politics.

The popularity of the agile method used to build software faster has always been paired with coaching by the scrum master at the end of a development sprint. By taking the time to coach clients and engineers in a review meeting, teams can iterate improvements in efficiency in between intense work periods. The crucial aspect of transparency is not for those who enjoy corporate politics or civility at the expense of quality. It requires forthright honesty and an ability to trust that colleagues have reasonably healthy egos. Those who are generally satisfied with their lives, hold themselves in high esteem, and operate from a strong internal sense of self can make continuous improvement a way of life. Those with low self-esteem or ego-sensitivities best find a corporate role somewhere that is not dependent on rapid and exponential innovation or growth.

There’s a place for everyone thankfully. But if you want your team to be agile, building solid internal character strength and laser coaching skills are two imperatives. An ability to be tough, while respectful can make for an intense work environment. But wicked smart talent who experience it, rarely want to go back to the games of corporate life.

The agile coach can be summarized by Sarah White, senior writer at Agile coaches help train corporate teams on the agile methodology and oversee the development of agile teams to ensure effective outcomes for the organization. They are responsible for guiding teams through the implementation process and are tasked with encouraging workers and leadership to embrace the agile method. The agile coach’s ultimate goal is to arm agile teams with the right knowledge, tools and training so that they’ll be able to use agile to its full potential.
