We use a variety of methods to train people in evaluation methods and techniques. Coaching, on either a stand-alone basis or as part of a programme, has proved a very successful way of helping a coachee understand the impact of evaluation and how to start building strategies for change.
Our experienced evaluation coaches deploy both a directive and non-directive approach depending upon what is required, and will share their experience and knowledge of working.
We build on:
- Good practice in evaluation, including exposure to new ideas and the building of commercial acumen
- Developing internal processes, ranging from process creation to continuous improvement and reporting, focused around the needs of your organisation as defined by you and your team

If you want to help your team develop their evaluation skills, this coaching workshop scenario will help your team identify and develop strategies and processes to allow your evaluation to drive your learning.
Our team coaching process is a highly interactive workshop. We blend together action learning, situational input and team coaching to create a practical and useful event with a tangible outcome. The workshop can be a one-off or a continuing process to build capability, mindset and process. We can also combine this with a ‘performance clinic’ to diagnose and resolve specific issues.
