Coaching Skills for Effective Leadership

  • Course Code: 32506

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. 

For organizations, this course supports the Employee Engagement Impact Area - enhancing collaboration, connection and culture.

Course Reviews

  • Melissa Trapani, Central Administration Supervisor, Liebherr-Canada Ltd. Nov 15, 2021

    The course was not at the level I had hoped.

  • Sylvain Bastiera, Safran Landing Systems Aug 12, 2019

    There should be more participation from attendees. Like sharing their thoughts or experience about how to handle situations

  • Past Participant, Grain Farmers Of Ontario Nov 19, 2019

    Better engaging and connecting participants on day 1 would help get more out of it, and more clarity around some day 1 scenarios. Day 2 was much better overall - very good.Day 1 was a bit harder to follow - instructions not always clear. Day two was much better.
