Evolution’s executive coaching process is designed to change behaviors through deep self-awareness and shifts in beliefs. Through coaching, our clients explore and reach meaningful goals, while receiving confidential support and honest feedback that reveals personal and interpersonal blind spots. Our experienced team of coaches allows clients to select a coach who has both extensive training and fits the client’s unique needs. Coaching is typically done weekly or bi-weekly, primarily by phone and Zoom. Evolution offers an "always-on" approach, where the coach sits in our client's Slack workspace and is available anytime for support, whether a call or review of materials and the like. Coaching is often paired with a 360 review process for optimal effect.
Evolution’s 360 review process is designed to provide a comprehensive picture of a leader’s strengths and opportunities from all degrees of interaction in their role. A coach from Evolution conducts this review through confidential interviews with a list of stakeholders, that is a mix of board members and/or supervisors, peers, and direct reports and can even include partners and close personal relationships to add dimensionality. The feedback is aggregated into a report which is shared during a live, deep dive read out session. The deep dive includes a comprehensive self assessment as well as personality instrument and ends with development goals that drive coaching success.

It’s not just the foosball tables and free food, culture is all of the subtle interactions, structures, roles, and values that guide how people work.At Evolution, we work with companies through a process of “Be – Do – Have” to discover what makes them unique and what triggers behaviors and performance.
