Co=Gen Coaching

Personal and Leadership Development for Millennials+

INTEGRATED SUPPORT

“There’s no longer such thing as a job for life. Individuals need to be ready to drop in and out of jobs with up-to-date skills and knowledge, as required.”  Jane Hart The Future of Work and Learning

What many aspiring leaders are missing is a balanced awareness of their own talents and strengths, as well as of knowledge and skills gaps and an understanding of ways to fill some of them.

They need a three-dimensional growth strategy, starting with personal development, then focusing in turn on team and organizational development.

The challenge is to find the sweet spot where all three domains overlap.

An Incremental Approach

Digital Irrigation and Reinforcement
“…unlike conventional assets, knowledge grows when it is shared.” Dr Karl-Erik Sveiby

We can be good at starting things, but not so good at nurturing growth once the seeds have been sown. Personal and leadership growth comes from the discipline of tapping into and applying ideas and resources from the digital drip feed irrigation system that is part of Co=Gen Coaching.

Feedback and Assessment
“The essence of feedback is that the effect of an action is fed back to alter that action.”  Edward de Bono

Apart from valuable formative feedback from coaches to Co=Gen participants there may be a role for micro-credentials in some Co=Gen modules for some people. These are specific mini-qualifications which recognise smaller, more discrete sets of skills and knowledge than a degree or diploma.

Micro-credentials are enjoying an international resurgence, both in response to time and money, costly traditional qualifications, and to meet employer demand for training that meets specific work needs at a time of rapid technological and social change.
