Digital coaching for senior consultants working in IBM Europe.
Recognising that they needed to increase coaching access to a broader range of staff whilst ensuring its coaching spend went further, IBM came to us looking for a new e-coaching solution.
We tested Rethinkly in a small pilot study (evaluated by an independent organisation) and nearly 80% of participants said the coaching was very or extremely valuable, with one participant describing it as ‘life changing’. The majority of participants found the experience of being in the Rethinkly world very profound – they described being able to talk freely about how they really saw things, and that they could more easily take stock of different perspectives and so shift their own, change their own self-perception and clarify their thinking.
"It has changed the way I deal with people on a daily basis."
"It helps me to work out how to BE in meetings."
"I saw things in a new way… more clearly."
After several years' experience across Europe connected to a leadership development programme, over 300 participants have experienced Rethinkly-based online coaching. We request feedback from each participant via an anonymous survey: 100% gained new insights and 96% would recommend Rethinkly to others.
The effect these insights had on participants was also direct and immediate: many felt increased self-confidence, found they had fresh ideas for handling relationships and described a new ability to perform their role in a different, more creative way. For many the ability explore the Rethinkly world between coached sessions was an invaluable feature and the visual element of the experience played a significant part in the positive outcomes.
