Build Coaching Skills to Tap Potential

Discount Available for Groups

This is an online course, offered via Zoom. It will be held for two days, July 16 and July 23, from 9am-12pm.

A successful supervisor is one who can effectively coach and develop staff to take initiative, resolve conflict, develop productive working relationships, and reach their highest potential.   While most supervisors can master the technical aspects of their job, the harder part is knowing how to help others develop and flourish, solve their own problems and have the tough conversations when things are not going well.  This interactive workshop will allow participants an opportunity to practice keys skills that will assist the participants in learning:

  • The differences between being a coach and being a manager
  • How to develop a coach-like leadership mindset that will help to create a more collaborative work environment
  • A framework for identifying who owns the problem and specific steps and skills for coaching conversations based on this model. 
  • How to ask the powerful questions and make the shift from being a “know-it-all” to a “learn-it-all” leader.
  • Tips for having the tough performance conversations and coaching for improved performance.
  • The GROW coaching model and how to apply it when coaching others towards success.
