Coaching is a unique skill that helps leaders unlock potential in their team. It's a softer, gentler, way to open up a meaningful dialog with others. Participants will learn the foundational steps to coaching (versus dictating, managing, etc.). They will have an opportunity to practice coaching skills in class and build their own set of coaching questions to connect in a more relevant way with their team.
What we will cover:
- What is coaching anyway? Learn how to unlock potential in your team by using coaching.
- Discover when to use coaching as a strategy and when it's not appropriate
- Learn to set the tone for a coaching conversation
- Gain an understanding of the foundations for a strong coaching question
- Participants will practice using coaching skills
Note: This is a boutique training opportunity with a small class. Participants will have the value of listening to other's as well as sharing their own stories. Past clients have connected to this class synergy and felt that the opportunity to share + cross-pollinate ideas among other SMB (small medium business) leaders is immeasurable.
Lunch: A catered lunch is included with registration. The roundtable lunch discussion will be facilitated from 12-1pm.
Here is what participants in the 2017 Manager Training Series had to say:
Loved the class! It was great and it kept me engaged the entire program.
I thought the training provided valuable information. I liked the small group format with people from a variety of businesses. This allowed for good discussions. I came away with lots of new tools and resources for my toolbelt!
Very pleased! The group was diverse, had a lot to offer, questions & comments; material and references were current/timely.
It was very well organized, planned, and executed. I walked away with so much information, ideas and a long "to do" list! I already shared some of the ideas with my management team and will start to implement some of them. I also am thankful for the additional resources so I can continue to expand my knowledge. The activities were useful, relevant and pertinent.
