How It Works
Coaching Programs Contracted by Corporations
Specific skill building is the hallmark of the Darius coaching approach. Most programs are conducted one-on-one and customized to meet the needs of the individual. In some cases, customized coaching may be designed for small groups.
Program Goals and Objectives
Goals and objectives for programs are a combination of input from an HR professional and/or a manager, the coachee and the coach. Programs are based on recommendations for areas of development and needs for improvement.
Prior to program design and engagement, an initial consultation with the coachee is conducted in-person or by phone at no charge. The purpose of the consultation is to finalize goals and determine the length and format of the program.
Depending on the type of program, the scope of work and availability of the client, programs are conducted in the following formats:
1. A series of one or two hour sessions (average is 10 hours)
2. Three 3-hour sessions
3. Two or three 4-hour sessions
4. One or more full days
Following the initial consultation, a Letter of Agreement is drafted which states specific goals for improvement, the program format, location and fee.
Upon program completion, recommendations are made for further coaching if needed.
Location of Programs/Fees
Programs are usually conducted at Darius Communications offices, however they may be conducted at the client’s office. Fees for services at Darius Communications include videos, facilities and any related equipment. Time and travel fees may apply to sessions conducted on-site depending on location. Corporate programs are invoiced or payable by credit card.
All sessions (excluding store or salon visits) are digitally taped for feedback during training and post-program review. Session content is considered confidential. Videos become the property of the coachee.
Follow-Up With Management
A phone conversation or brief email communication with the coachee’s manager regarding progress is provided at no charge, during the course of the program and upon completion, if requested.
It is not the policy of Darius Communications to provide lengthy written assessments of progress during or upon completion. Extrensive written reports are an additional charge.
Measurement of progress is usually observable within reasonable time. Programs are intensive and therefore generally yield visible results before program completion.
Coaching Programs for Individual Consumers
Darius Communications provides services for Individual consumers (paying for themselves).
Programs are customized to the needs of the individual as determined in an initial phone consultation. Goals are discussed and the number of hours/sessions are estimated to accomplish the goals.
Programs for individuals paying for themselves are conducted at Darius Communications offices, by phone, or Skype. Fees may be paid by cash, check or credit card.
