The mye-coach helps DCC refine their coaching practice

The mye-coach helped DCC track the number of relationships that are in place at any one time. They were able to run reports; see how many coaching relationships they had at any one time; how many hours were being spent on coaching; log coaching interactions, as well as provide a forum for open discussion.
