This course builds on the coaching tools and concepts introduced during Part 1. The Part 2 workshop gives you more time to practice and receive feedback on your coaching skills in a guided and safe environment. Additionally, you will gain a better understanding of how to navigate through some of the more challenging issues that many new and experienced supervisors face when taking a coaching approach.
Attendees will learn and practice:
- Four key coaching skills
- Techniques for using coaching for performance empowerment, enhancement, and improvement through on the job development
- Ways to move people through challenges, decisions, lack of motivation, or confidence to higher levels of performance
- Tools to leave conversations with clarity and agreement
- A solid four-point framework for all coaching conversations
- Stategies and practices to continue to create all-round better organizational communication
This course is part of a 2-workshop series. We recommend you take the Part 1 session before taking this course. This session is also appropriate for anyone who has participated in previous years’ Coaching Skills for Leaders and Managers training and wants to go further with mastering their skills.
