What is QwikCoach?
QwikCoach is a new virtual performance support tool designed to help people maximize their potential and ability to contribute to overall organizational success.
Why is QwikCoach needed?
Today most organizations are more concerned than ever with managing cost and maximizing performance. QwikCoach provides a way to address both of these important concerns. The best way to improve performance is with coaching, and QwikCoach will dramatically improve the ability of managers and leaders at all levels to coach. It’s also useful for any individual who doesn’t have a coach. The only way to provide coaching for everyone at a reasonable price is to leverage technology in new and innovative ways. That’s what you get with QwikCoach.
Our company has a competency Model. Can QwikCoach be used to support and significantly enhance its use?
Yes! Many organizations spend considerable amounts of time, energy, and financial resources designing and building a model but falter when it comes to implementing it. Defining your organization’s competencies is important but helping people master competencies and put them into practice is a key differentiator when it comes to achieving organizational excellence. With our Competency Modeling solution you’ll have everything you’ll need to operationalize your organization’s Competency Model and maximize its beneficial impacts.
Our organization has a competency model. Will using QwikCoach conflict with it or can our model be used with QwikCoach?
Using QwikCoach will not cause a conflict! In fact, QwikCoach can be used to encourage widespread use and acceptance of your competencies. To accomplish this important objective (and to reinforce the answer provided to the question immediately above), we can easily create a customized web page that shows the relationship between your competency model and the modules in QwikCoach and provide direct links to coaching support to help operationalize your Competency Model. It’s the most cost-effective way to put your competency into effect and get real value from your competency model development effort.
Does QwikCoach come with real coaching content?
Yes! QwikCoach comes loaded with coaching advice, guidance, and insights all designed to address real performance challenges – the types faced by most people every day – and reinforce any training or learning an organization has presented around three areas of core business competencies: People Smarts, Personal Savvy, and Business Sense. All content is based on decades of coaching interactions and reflects what we’ve helped people discover as we’ve worked with them to improve their ability to perform and contribute to workplace success.
Can you provide examples of how people are using QwikCoach?
Yes! Just take a look at this video . . .

It can be used by members of any of these groups to address performance improvements opportunities. In addition, personnel in supervisory, management, or leadership positions can use QwikCoach as an indispensable tool when providing coaching support to others.
