Lisa - you might want to consider a focus on both contracting process phases (such as pre-award, negotiations, post-award) and contracting skills (such as change management, communications, managing stakeholders). In other words, coach the Junior Contract Manager through the steps of the process - but also coach them on how to elevate their various relevant skills in each of the process steps.

I agree with Lisa. But I would focus more on contracting skills as this is the important part to get results.
