The Expedition Coaching program is a fantastic program which is easily understood and embraced at all levels within an organization. Shana Ring of Destination Leadership has done a brilliant job bringing together the key aspects of the coaching including questioning and listening, with powerful founding principles of trust, intention, and agenda.

As a certified executive coach and the author of a thesis based on organizational coaching, I have seen a lot of coaching models. Although most models lead you in the same general direction, the Expedition GUIDE coaching model is the best I’ve seen. It’s easy to understand, and the supporting materials which have been developed are fantastic. The video series that has been developed to support the learning is excellent.
After a thorough comparison of all of the coaching programs on the market, Expedition Coaching was an easy choice for the First Group of Companies for a variety of reasons including the easy to understand GUIDE and DIRECT models, well designed support materials, professional video’s, professional support and price.
Last year (spring 2012) we introduced the senior leadership team of First and managers to Expedition Coaching. The engagement and learning was fantastic. Since then we have introduced it to almost all of the 140 employees of our organization. We chose to introduce the program as a communication tool they could use in any aspect of their life. All employees loved the program and are asking for more, and many have indicated that they would like to volunteer their time to learn more. Front line staff were able to make an immediate connection as to how the Expedition Coaching model is applicable to sales and have already begun planning the next training sessions for the spring of 2013.
