Pair Coaching

The Rewire Leadership approach to working with pairs is unique in that it uses interpersonal, intrapersonal, and systemic perspectives. We utilize the FIRO Theory Profiling to develop self-awareness and awareness of the other, and the PeRL approach to help pairs deepen their ability to do long-lasting problem solving on their own.

Professional pairs who work with RL become stronger, more productive, and more collaborative, resulting in leaders capable of supporting other pairs in resolving conflicts.

Team Coaching

Whether you are involved in strategic planning, problem solving, implementation, or culture change, we help team members gain self-awareness and mastery so that the interpersonal relationships on the team improve. By the conclusion of our coaching engagement, your team will have rewired itself to realize more of its potential.

Our unique approach to team coaching includes pre-meeting phone, Skype, or videocom interviews with team members to uncover the important issues that block greater productivity. We listen deeply during these interviews, respond to your specific situation, and drill down to the root of the issues faced by the team.

There is a direct link between our ability to uncover the "elephants in the room" prior to our initial meeting, and being able to address the issues in a constructive manner during the meeting while supporting the team members in finding solutions. We provide team members with a tailored skillset that helps them communicate well and solve problems effectively. Further, we provide the team with best practices to solve future issues before they turn into intractable problems.

Rewire Leadership (RL) Team Coaching goes beyond the traditional notions of team coaching. Our approach helps people develop deeper self-awareness, greater openness, and full accountability. This helps team members be more innovative, collaborative, and compassionate. From a business perspective, this model provides an excellent blueprint for executive teams, management teams and work teams to increase their current performance level. Teams identify sources of creativity and empowerment that enable them to address perceived limitations, carry out strategic plans creatively, and achieve goals with maximum ease. With RL Team Coaching, teams are able to make a more vital contribution to their organizations and the community.

When desired, to promote self-awareness in every member of the team, we use FIRO theory based assessment tools. Knowing that it is equally important to handle oneself effectively during the complex interactions of both in-person and virtual teams, we support teams in developing best practices to suit their situations.

Assessments

We all have blind spots. Assessments shine a light into the areas that are invisible to us. The assessments we use vary for individuals, pairs, and teams. Along with many other well-known assessment tools, RL coaches, steeped in the FIRO Theory, use the Schutz Elements of Awareness inclusive of our exclusive FIRO Theory Profile and other FIRO Theory based instruments.

For individuals, pairs, and teams: Self-awareness is the most important attribute of an authentic leader, whether a senior leader, mid-level manager, or individual contributor. RL provides self-assessments that enable individuals, pairs, and teams to learn about themselves and the others. We also provide 360o assessment web-based tools, phone interviews, and face-to-face interviews that leaders, managers, and teams receive feedback from their team members, supervisors, upper management, and stakeholders.

For teams and organizations: Acquiring and monitoring information regarding the health of a team or organization provides leaders and team members with vital feedback that is critical to their well-being. This knowledge is indispensable for any team or organization that aspires to excellence, strives to refine and evolve as external and internal shifts occur, or has gone through significant change. RL tailors our approach to the team or organization using web-based tools, phone interviews, and face-to-face interviews. Our confidential conversations reveal crucial information that provides us with knowledge of the team and organizational dynamics. This insight contributes to our in-depth debrief regarding the health of the team or organization.
