Executive Coaching for A Technical Account Manager At Amazon Web Services Usa Using The DiSC Assessment Tool
I had the privilege of Coaching a TECHNICAL ACCOUNT MANAGER working at AMAZON WEB SERVICES USA over a period of 3 months from February 2023.
DiSC is a personal assessment tool used by more than one million people every year to help improve teamwork, communication, and productivity in the workplace. The DiSC model provides a common language people can use to better understand themselves and those they interact with—and then use this knowledge to reduce conflict and improve working relationships.
DiSC is an acronym that stands for the four main personality profiles described in the DiSC model: (D)ominance, (i)nfluence, (S)teadiness and (C)onscientiousness. DiSC assessments are used in thousands of organizations around the world, from sprawling government agencies and Fortune 500 companies to nonprofits and small businesses.
Working through the comprehensive report which is assessment-generated, makes the coaching process data-based and quite objective, eliminating the need to ask hundreds of exploratory questions. The report gives an accurate description of both the coachee’s personal behavior style as well as their adapted behavior responding to their perceived current environment.
This is what the coachee said after going through this process:
“These sessions have helped me develop my skills and be successful in my current work role. Paul has had a positive impact on my professional development and has given me confidence in working with different people and building healthy working relationships.My coach helped me navigate through my report and help me break it down into small chunks. We had several hourly sessions every few months where he helped me focus on a fewer areas, following up with one on one sessions to learn about my progress. Paul also provided additional resources to help me in my progress: these were blogs, videos and other tools on building healthy relationships in my workplace. Paul has excellent communication skills, works with you to set realistic goals, and sets reasonable deadlines for milestones and follow-up.”
