Write a consulting proposal for a prospective client for a pilot program to develop 10 coach-managers in the organization.
The proposal should include:
a general statement of the problem or opportunity (this can be a hypothetical case);
background on coach-managing;
the skill set (knowledge, skills, and attitudes) needed to be an effective coach-manager;
description of the proposed steps in a pilot program to develop 10 coach-managers;
a process or method for evaluating the results of the pilot.
Support each element of your proposal with references to knowledge in the academic literature on coach-managing.
Include a minimum of 10 references — 5 can be drawn from the required reading for this course and another 5 should be selected from the Reading for the Course Project (or scholarly articles you find in the library).
Paper should employ APA style, not exceed 10 pages of double-spaced lines.
Je nai fait celle-ci plus longue que parce que je nai pas eu le loisir de la faire plus courte. Blaise Pascal
I have made this [letter] longer than usual because I have not had time to make it shorter.
The secret of good academic writing is rewriting. Scholarly papers go through a process of drafting and redrafting. If the goal is to produce a 10 page academic paper, the first draft could well be 15-20 pages. In subsequent drafts, the writer refines the work to improve clarity, insure precision, and eliminate wordiness. Please budget time for multiple drafts and submit your best work.
Here is another tale:
Woodrow Wilson was asked by a member of his cabinet about the amount of time he spent preparing speeches [RQWW]:
It depends. If I am to speak ten minutes, I need a week for preparation; if fifteen minutes, three days; if half an hour, two days; if an hour, I am ready now.
