As organizations look for ways to maintain a strategic advantage in a quickly changing world, masterful coaching has become a critical tool. Today’s managers must inspire, motivate, and effectively train employees to realize their optimal potential. A leader who is an excellent coach achieves results – and helps today’s employees grow to be tomorrow’s leaders.
What to Expect:
This two-day workshop focuses on the art and practice of coaching others to continually perform at higher levels. We integrate instruction on the latest coaching practices with extensive practice and video feedback.
In this workshop, you’ll learn three foundational concepts that a coach can provide: assessment, challenge, and support. It is designed to increase your skills and effectiveness as a developer of people.
In this workshop, you’ll learn to:
- Determine whether a person is open to coaching and willing to work hard on their own development
- Build trust in the coaching relationship
- Deliver “tough” news effectively
- Ask the right questions at the right time
- Support an individual in clarifying their goals
- Listen actively in collaborative conversations
- Offer constructive, productive feedback
- Match your coaching style to an employee’s needs
- Improve your own “emotional intelligence” and help your “coachee” to do the same
This workshop equips you with the skills to constantly raise the bar on your team’s performance and draw out their best abilities.
