Leader As Coach

Effective interactions between managers and direct reports is a critical linchpin to shifting from a performance management to a performance development culture. This program develops the enabling skillset for managers to create a performance development culture where high impact daily developmental Coaching Conversations  
take place. 

Benefits that will come from activating this skillset and behavior shift in managers include:

  • The creation of a supportive, healthy culture that attracts and retains talent.
  • A culture that will promote the improvement of productivity and innovation.
  • Reflective and self-aware leaders that seek help from others in situations where their natural tendencies won’t serve them well.
  • A coaching style of leadership that strengthens and supports coherence, communication, collaboration and change.
  • Leaders who unleash talent, plan for succession and help to create a strong and ready-now pipeline of next generation leaders.

 

Learning Objectives

Specifically, by the end of the session, attendees will be better able to:

  • Use a variety of listening and speaking skills to improve the outcomes of daily conversations with direct reports and other colleagues.
  • Coach someone through a problem-solving conversation in a way that increases the person’s ability to take initiative and resolve the issue.
