Sprint Coaching

A Highly Effective, Short-Term and Focused Coaching Approach

About Sprint Coaching

As we enter the post-pandemic era, companies need leaders who can tolerate ambiguity, manage change, and lead teams in a hybrid work environment. CPI Twin Cities explored how companies can best assist leaders challenged by constant uncertainty and disruption and created a short-term Sprint Coaching program. In a condensed 3-month timeframe, a certified CPI Coach provides targeted coaching intended to help leaders maintain focus, remain calm and confident, and be especially mindful of their leadership intent and impact while effectively managing change and leading diverse and geographically distributed teams. Sprint Coaching is intended to quickly increase self-awareness, create a pragmatic development plan, and provide laser-like focus on a specific learning objective.
