Coaching Skills for Effective Leadership

Engaging the best in people to achieve results
 
Effective leaders know that the way to get exceptional results, consistently over time, is by connecting people with their talents, interests and potential. That’s where coaching comes in. Coaching expands capacity and confidence, while driving greater commitment to organizations and their goals. But by “coaching” we’re not talking about the twice a year “performance review”. True coaching is about how you work with and through people every day to inspire better performance. If you want to learn to do this more effectively, this course is for you.

  • "  I was able to develop an action plan to deal with two coaching situations specific to my needs. This will help me put the training to use as soon as I get back into the office.  "

  • "  Small class was definitely advantageous. I learned much more than anticipated as we had one-on-one training with only three in the class.  "

  • "  Good balance of theory, role playing, video learning and opportunity to discuss real life scenarios in context of the course.  "

  • "  I thought the course was very good because it covered a relevant, hands-on approach to coaching. There were a wide variety of tools and approaches you could use for various situations. I especially appreciated the "I Speak" self-evaluation which will be useful in managing up, down and laterally.  "

  • "  I found several areas which I could incorporate into my current coaching sessions.  "

  • "  It reinforced previous management skills and by Day 2 the theory started matching up with practical situations, which made it very relevant.  "

  • "  I liked the fact that all the topics flowed into the next. It was organized and well presented. The presenter was very knowledgeable in the subject area.  "
