Goal: Developing Leaders into High Potentials Who Can Stretch from Tactical to the Strategic
“Your 24®” was a concept developed specifically to meet the needs of high potential leaders valued by the organization. Progression Partners understands the demands of leaders and thus, the program focuses on immediate “traction” within a “24 hour” developmental experience. Leaders leave with a better understanding of their importance to the organization, their team and their individual contributions. Additionally, each leader creates their “Your 24®” action and developmental plan aligned with company strategy and focus. Three to four months of follow up coaching holds the candidate accountable to their developmental areas and action plans.
Goal: Develop a solid foundation for managers of tomorrow
Your Potential is a half-day immersion experience that creates immediate awareness of personal strengths, needs and stress behaviors with application to role, team, and leadership brand. Candidates leave with several development areas identified and suggestions for action plans. We assist in establishing the leadership foundation for future growth.
If you are looking for a way to boost your organizational or professional productivity, a Coaching Circle might be just the answer! Coaching Circles are led by a Progression Partners coach. The facilitator keeps the conversation on track, manages how the time is spent and ensures all participants give and receive value from time spent in the Coaching Circle. Each Circle member commits to action and everyone is held accountable and holds others accountable. The facilitator is the ‘glue’ that ensures follow up is taken, success is obtained and metrics are met. A Circle meets over a period of months, with a cadence suited to the needs of the individuals/group. Circles usually have 4-8 people and meet once or twice monthly for 60-90 minutes and can be held virtually or in-person. Progression Partners customizes Circles based on the goals and type of Circle established.
Here’s an overview of common approaches to holding a Coaching Circle:
Within the Business Coaching Circles
Option 1: Corporate Challenge Focus A team of people are brought together to focus on a specific challenge your organization is facing, providing diversity to create ideas and fresh perspectives. The team offers their findings and recommendations in a presentation to senior executives.
Option 2: Team Challenge Focus An in-tact work group meets together to address specific challenges facing their department/business unit.
Option 3: Professional Development Focus High potentials from throughout the organization or an in-tact team meet together, each individual bringing a personal challenge they would like to address with the support and suggestions of colleagues.
Option 4: Leaning Focus Key topics of interest to the organization and the group are the focal point for each circle meeting. Content may come from a book that everyone reads and prepares to discuss at Circles, or it could come from speakers or reading articles.
Open Forum Coaching Circles
An open Coaching Circle is made up from individuals from various organizations. This offering allows individuals to proactively manage their own career needs and not ‘wait’ for an organization to provide a forum. Participants benefit from hearing ideas from those outside of their own organization.
Option 1: Professional Development Focus Each individual bringing a personal challenge they would like to address with the support and suggestions of colleagues.
Option 2: Learning Focus Key topics of interest to the organization and the group are the focal point for each Circle meeting. Content may come from a book that everyone reads and prepares to discuss at Circles, or it could come from speakers or reading articles.

Goal: Establishes a solid foundation for teams to increase their emotional intelligence and productivity.
One of the biggest challenges in life is getting along and effectively communicating with others. Since we all behave and perceive the world differently, there isn’t a single how-to guide for dealing with the people we work with every day. Team Birkman creates a common language for communication and enables individuals to understand their own personality strengths.
Through the power of “The Birkman Method®, Team Birkman is designed to gain the ability to embrace the differences that make us unique, instead of seeing differences as potential liabilities or areas of conflict. Through a series of structured activities using participant’s Birkman data, participants will leave knowing each employees outward behaviors and inward motivations. These insights are discussed together so team members appreciate, communicate, and leverage each other’s strengths.
