Coaching Methodology and Working Together with GautamManthan


Our Coaching Methodology

Coaching is about enabling business leaders and core teams to unlock and unleash their full potential. Effective Coaching Methodology enables them to bring greater value to themselves as well as to the organization. However, Business or Executive/Leadership Coaching can be effective only if it is specifically designed for the organization and each participant.

One size does not fit all. Thus, GautamManthan develops customized and carefully nurtured coaching modules for every client and each participant.

Our D.A.R.T.S. Coaching Methodology involves discovery, conceptualization, designing, execution, long-term action plans, implementation and monitoring. That is the strong fundamental that ensures our clients get excellent results from such exercises. It is about building the businesses of tomorrow.


  • Developing bespoke curriculum for your organization starts with Discovery Sessions early in the engagement.
  • Discovery sessions are conducted with business leaders and the core team members to audit current processes in the organization.
  • This detailed process helps in discovering and understanding realistic coaching needs.
  • Discovery includes one-on-one sessions, with basic research in place.


  • Based on the discovery sessions, we create detailed assessment of your organization.
  • We supplemented it with relevant information on your industry, environment and key competition.
  • Assessment is research-oriented and conducted to benchmark your organization vis-à-vis the wider business environment.
  • This assessment facilitates fundamental understanding of your business to identify core coaching needs, specific to your organization and people.


  • This is another important step to confirm and soundboard findings to create excellence in coaching modules.
  • Reviews comprise detailed discussions with the business leaders to fine-tune findings of the assessment.
  • By taking a consultative approach in the review process we ensure to arrive at an optimal coaching plan specifically tailored to suit your organization.


  • Our team analyzes findings and develops customized program outlines.
  • Team of subject-matter experts prepares and finalizes the coaching sessions for your organization.
  • Expert Coaches finalize the most effective delivery methodology.
  • We assign the most suited coaches for each session.
  • Final agenda is created and shared with the stakeholders in your organization.


  • We work with the respective teams to schedule the workshops keeping in mind their availability.
  • Workshops are conducted as per schedule to maximize achievement of desired results.
  • While we provide an indicative workshop duration, each workshop has in-built flexibility to suit varying requirements of the teams.
