The ability to embrace all three of these things is a key requirement of our current and future leaders.”

  • Benchmarking of position to assess where gaps may exist between talent and job for accurate targeting of development actions (see sample), (see Tri-Gap Sample)
  • Utilization of comprehensive TriMetrix Personal Talent and Coaching Reports (see sample)
  • Generation of professional strategic action plan that merges with performance mandate – arising from discussions in coaching sessions
  • Participation in follow up coaching sessions focused on specific issues/concerns/areas of interest identified by participant and finalization and implementation support of measurable action plans and upcoming 90 day performance activities – clarity…focus…accountability
  • Measurement of resulting progress and /or areas still needing improvement through utilization of a 360 assessment (see sample), direct observation, informal feedback from others

“Over the past two years I have witnessed the significant transformation that Cec Hanec has been able to generate in the organization I work for in her role as our leadership coach. The organization is large and complex, and in many ways was hidebound in a counterproductive culture. Cec Hanec applied her truly creative solutions for the ‘people side’ of business to lead the Executives and Management to more effective and fruitful working relationships. Today, thanks to Cec Hanec, our organization has knowledge, awareness and real tools to pull in the same direction – towards success!”
