Coaching with Work Expectations
Work Expectations Profile

Ever wondered what makes a good company great?

It's the people. Committed, productive employees are key to organizational success and a healthy bottom line. The challenge, then, is retaining and developing satisfied, committed employees. The solution is the Work Expectations Profile. Why? This engaging, self-directed learning instrument helps your employees understand and manage their work expectations. Research has shown that people who have clearly defined, well-communicated expectations have better attitudes and enjoy greater job satisfaction than people whose expectations go unspoken or unrealized. And companies that employ satisfied, successful people reap the rewards of increased productivity and reduced turnover.


Explore 10 Key Expectations through Coaching:

In a typical employment situation, certain expectations, such as salary, hours, and job duties, are clearly understood by both employer and employee. Other expectations, however, are so intimately linked to an individual's concept of work that they often go unspoken or unacknowledged. The Work Expectations Profile helps people explore 10 work expectations that affect today's employment relationships:

  • Structure
  • Environment
  • Balance
  • Autonomy
  • Stability
  • Recognition
  • Teamwork
  • Diversity
  • Expression
  • Career Growth
The Work Expectations Profile provides a framework to help employees and managers understand and discuss the "psychological contract" that affects job satisfaction and performance with the added measurement of met and unmet expectations. As a follow up to having each employee complete the profile, we recommend reviewing it in a one hour coaching session with each employee's direct supervisor. A great first step in the coaching process.
