An action-learning workshop focusing on the art and practice of coaching others so that they continually perform at higher levels.
Are you a referee? Or do you know how to actively coach and develop your people?
Becoming a masterful coach is a leadership skill that is becoming increasingly important as organizations look for ways to maintain a strategic advantage in a quickly changing world. Today’s managers must be able to inspire, motivate, and train employees so that they can perform optimally. Today’s leaders need this skill if they are to achieve needed results, and so that they can grow today’s employees’ into tomorrow’s leaders.
This workshop focuses on the art and practice of coaching. We integrate extensive practice and video feedback with the latest coaching practices.
You’ll learn how to apply the three foundational concepts that a coach can provide: assessment, challenge, and support. You’ll also learn how to determine whether the person you need to coach is open to change and is prepared to work hard. You’ll come away with the skills needed to help your people perform to the very best of their abilities – and to constantly raise the bar on their performance.
This workshop is designed to increase your skills and effectiveness as a developer of people. You’ll learn how to:
- Build trust in the coaching relationship
- Deliver “tough” news effectively
- Ask the right questions at the right time
- Support an individual in clarifying 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
Feedback from workshop participants
“The video portion made me very conscious of the subtleties of how my responses can be perceived.”
“I think it made me more comfortable addressing concerns early and directly; I realized that I have to change my style to suit the need of the person I am coaching.”
“I have used the skills, particularly with younger reports, and have seen excellent progress in their development and contribution to our business, particularly with project work!”
The workshop fee of $1,395, includes all materials, course instruction, and lunches. Enrollment is limited.
