The Hogan Coaching Network (HCN)
is a group of highly professional, well credentialed, broadly experienced consultants who are carefully screened to ensure that they are experts not only in the Hogan inventories, but in coaching and consulting as well, especially at senior management and executive levels.

All coaches employ the Hogan results-oriented approach of connecting what participants learns about themselves from the assessment results (strategic self-awareness) to their key business goals.  We view the assessment results as the “what,” and the feedback session with the coach as the “so what” (i.e., so what does this mean to me?). We then help the participants with the “now what” (i.e., now what do I do to be more effective?). Within this framework, the coaches tailor their approach to best reach the participants so the feedback session has maximum impact.
