This workshop is part of our Leadership program. It can also be taken stand-alone.

Command-and-control leadership is a relic of the past. In modern organizations, a leader's default approach must be to provide context and then to coach their colleagues as they reach their own conclusions.

This workshop celebrates the effectiveness and kindness of coaching as a set of tools that empower others to do their best thinking.

In this workshop, you will...

  • Explore how to effectively build rapport and trust
  • Gain an understanding of the mentoring spectrum
  • Learn how to default to coaching
  • Explore and practice deep listening skills
  • Practice constructing coaching questions to engage and empower others
  • Learn how to convert mediocre questions into great questions
  • Learn a well-established model for structuring coaching conversations
  • Coach another participant through a real-world work challenge and receive feedback on your coaching skills
  • Learn how to improve your remote coaching

I have improved my listening skills, my ability to pick up on body language, and how to adapt my approach to fit the group of people that I'm interacting with.

I really appreciate the way our training class is structured, in that I am able to get introduced to a skill, practice it, and discuss how it can be applied to me professional (and personal!) life.

The workshop helped me understand that sometimes my coworkers may speak words, but if I'm really *listening*, a lot of times there is a fundamental thought behind what they're saying that can help me to understand what they mean / want better. That has had a real impact on my interactions.

This was an excellent workshop. I found the specific examples of the best way to handle specific scenarios really valuable. The re-wording of the questions to better coaching questions was great. The accountabilities piece was much needed. I loved the frameworks on how to handle 1:1s too.

This was great coaching training for leaders. I particularly liked the ability to look at scenarios and then discuss them afterwards.

There was a lot of detailed information...for me I'm taking away several key points that may seem obvious but helpful to be reminded about them - do check-ins regularly, let the team member do most of the talking, focus on the connection/relationship.

To get the best out of people, we have to believe the best is in there – but how do we know it is, how much is there, and how do we get it out?
