Invest In A Coaching Skills Workshop

What is coaching?

Coaching is the ongoing process of building partnerships aimed at continuous improvement. It is a two-way communication process between members of the organization (e.g. leaders and team members, peer-to-peer), and is designed to develop and enhance hard and soft skills, motivation, attitude, judgment, and the ability to perform and contribute to an organization’s strategic objectives.

The global economy has changed. Today’s leaders must be able to do more with less. Leaders who possess coaching skills directly impact current and future employee performance in numerous ways. Leaders who acquire active coaching skills:

  • Promote a highly engaged work environment, a culture of trust, enhanced performance, and improved productivity
  • Actively give team members needed feedback on their performance and development
  • Coach team members to achieve their full potential and drive bottom-line results
  • Bring any change resistance to the surface and discuss obstacles (hidden or not) that may impede change
  • Develop and enhance execution skills to drive strategic priorities
  • Confront and resolve performance problems by enhancing individual and team accountability
  • Develop future leadership talent by increasing innovation, commitment, and ownership
  • Develop respect and trust among team members

Sales Coaching

“On one hand, organizations strive to do more with delivery, enhance service, and improve quality and productivity. On the other hand, organizations have to compete for talented people and keep them motivated, focused, and challenged. Leaders need the knowledge and skills to balance these competing needs.”

“The goal is to enhance growth and performance, promote individual responsibility, and encourage accountability. Coaching is not discipline, soft management, or manipulation.”

~ Cherissa S. Newton, M.Ed.

“Opportunities for coaching abound in the professional world, presenting themselves during more formal situations, as well as in unscheduled, unanticipated, and spontaneous ways. Leaders have to be prepared to seize the opportunity to coach whenever they can.”

~ Steven J. Stowell, Ph.D.
