Leadership Training

Many of our organizational clients have requested we bring training in-house to teach leaders, managers, executives and supervisors how to coach their employees. These organizations are interested in creating a “coaching culture” – a culture that favors:

  • Empowerment over micro-management and controlpagePicLeadershipCoaching
  • A focus on employee strengths rather than weaknesses
  • Clarity of expectations and accountability rather than assigning blame
  • Collaborative problem-solving rather than interdepartmental competition
  • Exploration, discovery and excitement rather than fear

Our highly-interactive training program gets your leaders practicing the essential skills of coaching immediately, including respectful listening, asking powerful questions, providing honest, constructive feedback, evoking excellence and accountability,
challenging for results, goal-setting and action planning. Participants learn the highly-effective Coaching Conversation a structured, 8-step process that stimulates employees to step up to the challenges of problem-solving, generates new thinking, innovative solutions and ownership for taking action.

If you are considering developing an internal coaching program utilizing in-house coaches, this unique two-day program is ideal for building the skills of your internal coaches. They will learn both the basics of coaching (and confidentiality and ethics), as well as advanced coaching skills and tools and techniques for rapidly accelerating the growth, development, progress and results of your workforce.

Our Leader as Coach course was originally developed as a graduate course for the University of Denver, and is taught at a level that respects the intelligence and talents of your executives.

People join organizations and leave bosses. Don’t let high turnover impact your bottom line. Teach all your executives how to take more of a coach approach to leadership. Help them learn a process designed to help individual employees and teams achieve and sustain top performance in ways that are linked to the organization’s goals.
