A Senior Program Manager of the company was transitioning to a global role. His new reporting manager articulated the following areas of development for the leader in preparation for this role:

- Balancing his extrovert and introvert sides
Meeraq matched the Executive with an ICF Professional Certified Coach having extensive experience of coaching and consulting in the manufacturing industry.
Before beginning the coaching sessions, the executive took the MBTI Personality Assessment instrument. The coach gave him a 1 : 1 debrief to help understand what the assessment report meant for him and how he could use this data to work on his development journey.
The coaching journey had the following components: Triparty Meeting; Goal Setting; Six Coaching Sessions; Mid and End Review; Closure Session
The executive was given access to CaaS – Meeraq’s proprietary coaching management platform for easy scheduling, tracking, and management of the coaching intervention.
Meeraq’s Program Management team ensured a seamless experience for the client and provided administrative support and frequent reporting on the intervention status.
