Supporters are people who will provide ongoing pulse feedback to the Participant about the progress of their behaviors in their action plan. We generally recommend 5 Supporters per goal – people who observe the Participant in action and are willing to spend a few minutes each pulse feedback round to provide comments and help the leader improve his/her effectiveness.
To add a Supporter, first encourage Participants to speak with their Supporters verbally, asking them to participate as a Supporter throughout their coaching and/or leadership development experience. It's helpful to let the Supporters know the process and set expectations.
Either the Coach or the Participant can add a Supporter. From the Participant’s main page, scroll down to Supporters and click “+”.
Add the Supporter’s name and email address. (Note: there is no limit to the number of supporters on a project. )
To include a welcome message, click the check box at the bottom of the form. A welcome message can also be sent at a later time.
A standard welcome message will be displayed. The text can be edited to personalize the message. Once the supporters are added to the system, they will receive an email.
To submit, click the green “Add Supporters” button at the bottom of the form.
