TV HeadCoach™

Newsroom Coaching Software for
Television News Managers

If you’re going to win consistently, you have to coach consistently.  I designed TV HeadCoach™ to help you and your management team get the best possible performance out of everyone in your newsroom. 
– Barry Nash

TV HeadCoach™ has everything you need to organize and manage the newsroom coaching process.

What You Can Do With TV HeadCoach

Organize so your culture is relentlessly focused on getting better.

With our Coaching Calendar, it’s easy to plan and manage coaching for everyone on your team who’s critical to your success. You just add a session to the calendar and assign a coach. The system takes it from there, automatically notifying both the manager/coach and team member being coached, briefing the coach on your priorities for the session, and scheduling follow-up sessions on whatever timetable you choose.

Create a written, customized Coaching Plan for each member of your team.

Effective goal setting begins with writing things down, so every member of your team has their own page, where you and your management team can customize a written development plan for each of them.

Challenge and inspire your talent with recommendations from our Best Practices Library.

TV HeadCoach™ includes the Best Practices library we use in our own work with talent. It features tips your team can put to immediate use, all organized into easy-to access categories.

Use our Prompter to keep the newsroom focused on your goals and priorities.

Change can be difficult, especially when it involves breaking old habits and creating new ones. TV HeadCoach™ ups your odds of coaching real change by reminding team members of the goals and priorities you want top-of-mind — so that they will know how you want them to focus until the focus you want becomes second nature to them.

Use our FastTrack feature to help your talent get better faster.

When you’re working with talent, our FastTrack feature will generate a list of recommendations based on critical performance goals. Select the ones you want your team member to master, and a quick click automatically adds those recommendations to their customized coaching page.

Put access to Feedback at everyone’s fingertips.

Feedback is the lifeblood of real and lasting change, and TV HeadCoach™ is built to support a culture of feedback in your newsroom. Followup coaching sessions can be scheduled on whatever frequency and timetable you want. Members of your management team can add general critiques or feedback on specific objectives. And team members can easily request feedback when they want to know how they are doing.

Build a Coaching History that keeps track of it all.

As coaching sessions progress, TV HeadCoach™ builds a history that keeps track of what’s been recommended to your team, when each recommendation was made and who made it. That’s good for lots more than improving performance. From a human relations standpoint, it means you always have a record of the attention you and your staff have given to each member of your team — just in case there is ever any question about your commitment and time invested in them.

Keep track of Prospective Hires, so you never miss an opportunity to upgrade your team.

TV HeadCoach™ will store pertinent contact information, links to prospects’ recent work, and make it easy for you to solicit feedback from other stakeholders in your decision-making chain. And it will automatically remind you when contract dates are approaching, so you never risk missing an opportunity because you were late to reach out.

Access TV HeadCoach™ anytime, anywhere, from any device
