Presentation Description

Employee engagement is critical to every organization’s success, and it is one of the toughest issues employers face as they strive to develop and retain a strong workforce. Coaching is an approach to management—that is, how one carries out the role of being a manager by challenging and developing employees' skills and abilities. This dynamic workshop explores the different management styles and core principles of coaching as an effective management style that leads to more engaged employees and greater results.

Participants will:         

  • Understand the coaching core beliefs and how coaching differs from mentoring, therapy, and consulting
  • Learn how to use a coaching management approach to create a healthy organization and positive culture
  • Understand your personal management style and how to shift it to coaching as a management style for greater results
  • Gain an understanding of essential coaching skills such as: designing the alliance, powerful questions, active listening, breaking resistance, strategizing, and accountability
