Developing coaching skills for today’s time-crunched leaders is a big challenge. As we’ve delivered The Extraordinary Coach workshop over the past few years we’ve been very impressed by how quickly participants shift their thinking about coaching and pick up new skills. A big part of the reason is the 4 Step FUEL model.
This spring we started delivering the newly revised and updated version of The Extraordinary Coach. It’s proving to be even more powerful. A major improvement comes from the new video clips in the program. They provide entertaining and engaging illustrations of key points in the program — especially the FUEL model.
In the few months they’ve been available, these videos have captured an unprecedented number of awards and recognitions. The program features several video vignettes that model the critical coaching skills and tools needed to be a more impactful leader/coach. These videos have caught the attention of the leadership community and have been recognized with six different industry awards honoring their quality. These include top honors from the Stevie Awards, the Telly Awards, and the Videographer Awards.
The coaching video received a Gold Stevie Award, the highest honor in the training category. The Stevie Awards, created in 2002, honor top achievements and positive contributions of organizations globally. The awards are reviewed by over 200 judges that are some of the world’s most respected entrepreneurs, innovators, and business educators.
In addition, The Extraordinary Coach was honored with a Bronze Telly Award. The Telly Awards annually recognize superior film and video productions, groundbreaking online video content, and outstanding local, regional, and cable TV commercials/programs.
Four of the new coaching videos were also honored in the Videographer Awards. Two videos received The Award of Excellence, the highest honor. Another video received the Award of Distinction and a fourth video was recognized with the Honorable Mention Award. The Videographer Awards are among the oldest and most respected awards in the industry.
