Our Coaching Philosopy

We recently completed a coaching series for Brian Moore, IT Manager at Pierce County Public Health. He worked with our team and professional coach, Janaki Severy, for seven months focused on professional development and growth.

“I very much appreciate the work that Janaki Severy conducted with me during our Leadership Development sessions.  She was a pleasure to work with and brought many ideas, method and learning tools to the table.

It has been quite a while since I have invested this type of effort into self development and I was very pleased with the results.  Many times in the past, I have pushed for staff to conduct self improvement, but always neglected myself due to budgetary constraints. In this case I was very happy with the results and look forward to results in my contributions to this organization.” – Brian Moore IT Manager at Pierce County Public Health

Coaching is the most individually tailored practice in talent development, involving a close relationship between the coach and the person(s) being coached. The International Coach Federation defines coaching as “a professional partnership between a qualified coach and an individual or team that supports the achievement of extraordinary results, based on goals set by the individual or team. Through the process of coaching, individuals focus on the skills and actions needed to successfully produce their personally relevant results.”

Invista Performance Solutions recruits and maintains a pool of talented professional coaches with a variety of backgrounds and experiences. To ensure best fit, we will work with your organization and the coachee to select the professional coach. A range of criteria is considered including: the coaching program goals, the coach’s business background, certification level, coaching style and personality fit, as well as your organization’s specifications. The ultimate goal is to find a coach with whom the coachee can build a long-term trusting relationship focused on personal and professional development.

Our coaching programs are fully integrated into the management structure and departmental goals of our clients.  To set up a coaching program, IPS works with the individual(s) being coached and their manager to identify specific objectives for the coaching. Each coaching session is private and all discussions are held in confidence. Because our coaches are external to your organization, they are able to remain unbiased and can focus wholly on the coachee’s success. Top management support is vital to the success of a coaching program. This includes manager input and direction in the coaching objectives, funding of the program, and permission for time away from the job for the coachee to meet with and form a relationship with their coach.
