The Fastlead coaching process challenges every participant to create a personal growth plan

Making theory practical: the benefits of episodic learning

Participants mix coaching, learning from frontline leader peers, with concise, challenging pre- and post- work exercises that embed their learning.

Between coaching sessions, they try out the new techniques they’ve learned in their day-to-day work.

Learn, embed, apply: the personal growth plan

Every Fastlead participant creates a Personal Growth Plan in collaboration with their manager and coach. Through the program, it’s continually updated with real-life actions the participant will take to take to embed their learning.

Concise learning for busy leaders

Pre- and post-work is always concise, achiveable exercises that embed learning. For instance, pre-work may ask the participant to spend a maximum of 20 minutes reflecting on how they personally delegate, or manage upward - then to add ideas for improvement to their action plan.

We ask managers to get and stay involved

Fastlead features regular three-way check ins and debriefs for the manager, coach, and participant.

There’s two benefits: participants don’t forget what their manager asked them to achieve - and managers are reminded to offer the participant lots of opportunity to embed new skills.

Quickly, efficiently organised - with no extra work for you.

Don’t worry, our program management team and automated systems do all the logistics work of keeping sessions and pre/post work in sync.

Our client portal keeps you updated about the learning progress of your small groups, and their participants and action plans.

"Thank you for investing in us".

Fastlead is often the first intensive coaching a frontline leader has had. So they’re flattered, inspired and challenged.

Their confidence and decision making benefit enormously from honest discussion with peers of their fears and expectations.
