The Four Phase SystemEdit

The four phase system developed by Malinaccier is designed to maximize the benefits of admin coaching by discovering strengths and weaknesses more efficiently and effectively.

  • Phase one deals with questions designed to let the coach know what the coachee's best contributions are, and what their general strengths and weaknesses are. This phase is also very important in developing a nomination statement.
  • Phase two is all about policy. The admin coach will ask several series of questions dealing with policy, or questions that often come up in RFA's. They will then critique the coachee's responses and provide help in areas where the coachee needs it as shown by the responses
  • Phase three has to do with Wikiphilosophy (inclusionism/deletionism, orthodoxy on Wikipedia, etc.). The coach will ask several questions about Wikiphilosophies and controversial areas of Wikipedia policy.
  • Phase four is a mop up phase. The coach and coachee will work on whatever weak areas still need to be addressed.
