What does 'Stevig in de Steigers' look like?
'Stevig in de Steigers' consists of a box containing the following items:
1. The instrument itself. ‘Stevig in de Steigers’ comes in a digital version (on a USB-stick), as well as in a physical version. This way, the instrument can be used in every work setting.
2. Manual for the coach. This manual consists of two parts:
- In very clear language, the first part familiarises internal coaches with the practice of coaching: what coaching is, what it is not, what the advantages of coaching in the workplace are, and what supervisors must pay attention to when coaching. In addition, concrete tips & tricks are provided, and everything is illustrated by real-life examples.
- The second part is a walkthrough of the instrument itself. The coach is guided step-by-step throughout the entire instrument, and each step is illustrated by tips and examples. In addition, a few Frequently Asked Questions on coaching are addressed. Separate versions of the manual – digital and physical – are provided.
3. Support for implementation.
In addition, a few things are included to help organisations implement ‘Stevig in de Steigers’:
- A guide for HR, which contains practical advice on the way in which the instrument can be introduced and implemented in the organisation. Concrete tips are provided to make ‘Stevig in de Steigers’ a successful project in your organisation. In addition, this guide provides answers to a few technical Frequently Asked Questions: for instance, how to install and distribute the instrument in the organisation, typical errors, how to add a custom set of skills, and so on.
- A trainer set, containing a set of exercises that organisations can use to independently organise a short ‘coach the coach’ session for their internal coaches. This trainer set consists of a PowerPoint presentation and a roadmap with step-by-step explanations and debriefs of the different exercises. These exercises help coaches with little or no coaching experience to understand what coaching is (is not), the basic attitudes and skills of a good coach, and how coaching differs from their day-to-day job as a supervisor. The purpose of this trainer set is not to provide a theoretical training on coaching models or techniques, but to let supervisors really experience what it is like to act as a coach. By doing so, they will be better equipped to work with ‘Stevig in de Steigers’!
