How do managers/sponsors get involved in the coaching engagement? 

Managers play a key role during and after the coaching engagement.

Managers/sponsors join a 20-30 minute coaching alignment call with the executive and the Fast Forward coach at the beginning of coaching. If this isn’t possible, managers should ask the coachee to share their objectives for coaching and how they would like to be supported.

The coachee is encouraged to share their coaching objectives with their manager and to communicate the ways in which the manager can support their coaching goals.
