Presentation Description

As HR professionals, we influence corporate culture in many ways.  Culture consists of the unwritten rules we live by, the traditions we uphold, the beliefs, values and assumptions that shape the way we live and work together.  It is reinforced through various HR systems we implement (e.g., talent management, incentives/rewards, team development, and performance management). 

Your organization feels it would be a competitive advantage to build more of a “coaching culture.”  Talent development is considered a strategic imperative and coaching from the C-Suite to the frontline is an important part of that.  It is on your plate to champion the effort; but, you have a sense that there is a wide gulf between the current culture and the ideal “coaching culture.”

This highly interactive session examines the importance of organizational culture and its effect on the achievement of organizational strategies and goals.  We’ll define what a “coaching culture” looks like and examine the important role coaching plays in talent development and high performance.  We will provide specific ideas for developing a coaching culture and challenge participants to model the skills and behaviors essential for success.

Attendees will:

1. Examine the importance of organizational culture and its affect on the achievement of organizational strategies and goals.
2. Discuss the impact HR professionals have on creating a coaching culture.
3. Define what a “coaching culture” looks like; identify specific ideas for developing a coaching culture; and, determine how to model the skills and behaviors necessary for success.
