Since 2013, over 1,000 emerging and frontline leaders have experienced FASTLEAD. So what does this group like about the program? Well, to start with, the small group coaching design was their idea.
What follows are comments from FASTLEAD graduates themselves when asked what they enjoyed most about FASTLEAD. You’ll see participants refer to “pods”, which are the central design (one coach, three frontline leaders in 6 x 2 hour sessions).
Enjoy #1 “Interactive discussions and shared experiences”
Participants love the central reason small coaching groups (“pods”) were designed into this program: they enable interactive discussion and learning from peers.
Enjoy #2 “Directly work related”
Participants love the fact that real work issues and challenges can be discussed privately, and that solutions can be developed and tested. There is nothing “generic” or “theoretical” about FASTLEAD – it is practical news they can use.
Enjoy #3 “Small groups make it personal”
With only three participants in each coaching group, participants tell us it feels personal, and they get personal time with the coach in such a small group.
Enjoy #4 “Episodic”
Participants love that they learn leadership skills one at a time, and over time - rather than cramming multiple topics into a couple of days.
