Online Coaching Software

Prepare for Success with Coaching Software

Coaching programs are beneficial to an organization when they are planned, implemented, and managed correctly. As your coaching program begins to grow, how can you ensure that all stakeholders are following the correct coaching process? How can you keep track of all your program's coaching engagements while measuring the success of each coaching partnership?

These are only a few of the administrative activities needed to manage the success of your organization's coaching program. Additionally, the complexity of a coaching program increases with the inclusion of internal and external coaches, and with partnerships maintained in dispersed locations.

Manage, Track, and Report

Our comprehensive coaching software solutions are designed to enable program administrators to proficiently manage and track any number of coaching programs, allow internal and external coaches to participate and follow an approved process, provide coachees the tools they need to succeed in the program, and enable the organization to track and report on the original goals agreed upon for the coaching initiative.

Seamless Coaching Software and Program Implementation

Our coaching software has been successfully implemented by many coaching firms and HR departments around the globe. We understand that every organization has a different coaching process, and we configure our software to fit yours seamlessly. All our solutions are delivered by consultants who, having worked with many organizations that have implemented coaching initiatives, can advise on best practices for your own coaching program.

Coaching Software: Features and Benefits

For Program Administrators

  • Matching - First, determine your matching criteria for coaching partnerships within each program. Using our coaching matching tool, empower program administrators to match coachees with the most qualified coaches (optionally, coachees may self-match with coaches). Coaching partnerships are more successful, and administration time is dramatically reduced.

  • Tracking - Track coach-coachee interaction as well as each participant's individual activity.

  • Communication - Send emails and automated alerts prompted by events such as first login, account inactivity, approaching end-date, and goal due-dates.

  • Assessment - Send feedback surveys to individual coachees, and build customized ad-hoc reports at any time.

  • Management - Manage multiple coaching initiatives simultaneously.

  • Process Integration - Enforce your coaching program's guidelines by easily uploading your approved coaching process for coaches and coachees to follow.

  • Mentoring Integration - When mentoring is needed for certain individuals, this software solution can be easily configured to assist in managing integrated coaching/mentoring programs. See our mentoring solutions for more information.

For Coaches

  • Communication and Integration - Provide a social networking framework that provides coaches and coachees with interactive tools for profile creation and relationship management (LinkedIn integration optional), and upload documents related to coach-coachee engagement.

  • Assessment - Initiate LES (Leadership Effectiveness Survey) sessions for coachees as often as needed or desired, and make interaction notes available for review.

  • Management - View and manage all active coaching engagements, track coach-coachee relationships with interaction notes, flag interactions for follow-up, and enter feedback providers for the integrated 360 feedback surveys.

For Coachees

  • Career Development Tools - Enrich career-focused coaching engagements with development tools that include a learning and development plan for goal-setting and tracking, integrated career exercises and assessments, and our support for integration of third-party provider assessments.

  • Goal Tracking and Reporting - View coachee summary status, details of last coach-coachee interaction, and coach-coachee engagements filtered by active or inactive status. Easily access links to coach profiles, deliverables checklists, and report documents via the coachee dashboard. Easily print reports and enable automated report generation. (Learn more.)

  • Communication - Use our social framework to create coach and coachee profiles, facilitate coach-coachee communication and relationship management, and access coach profiles and contact information.

Success Stories

Insala helped address some of the key challenges we faced at Unilever, which is virtual mentoring, as many of our mentees and mentors are not in the same geographic location. Insala's mentoring consultant, Judy Corner, is a true mentoring specialist and a highly engaging individual.

At BPI, we pride ourselves on our responsiveness to the needs of both existing and potential customers. Insala's fast and reliable customer service and support have enabled us to do just that.

The Insala team were able to translate the BPI France website into British English and launch the website in record time. As a result, we were able to deliver our career center services to the customer with timescales that exceeded their expectations.

I worked with Judy Corner of Insala to develop a customized mentoring program for International Paper. Judy provided a degree of confidence to the Chairman's Diversity Council as she presented a pragmatic, visionary, long term perspective on the benefits to be gained from Insala's program. Following the M.O.R.E. workshop, participants were surveyed on session effectiveness and Insala received a 100% favorable rating on the value of the day. I highly recommend Insala and believe they offer a distinct advantage to companies looking to advance their position in the ongoing war for talent.

This past winter was definitely remarkable. We found that the E-mail Broadcaster function is the easiest and fastest way to reach all our candidates to inform them of any changes in our office hours - including having to close due to inclement weather, delayed openings, or early closure. Additionally, we use this function to promote our seminars and workshops, and the career coaches can reach all of their candidates in one simple email. This tool is a tremendous asset.

Antoinette Murray

We first started using EmploymentTalk™ in our practice in 2001, and have stuck with it ever since.

It gives us a big sales and marketing advantage.
