  • Program Background

    This program is radically different to all other offerings in this space.

    The carrot and stick approach may get employee compliance, but that is no longer sufficient to manage and lead today’s highly educated workforce. Providing managers and leaders with the skills to create an environment where employees volunteer their best contribution is what’s required to consistently win on a global basis. This experiential workshop demonstrates in a highly effective way the coaching skills needed by managers and leaders to create such a highly productive working environment.

    Managers and leaders who acquire the coaching skills offered during this workshop will have the ability to coach their employee to a significantly higher level of performance. Also, by integrating these coaching skills into their own management style, the managers and leaders will have the ability to interact in a significantly more effective way with their peers and their senior management colleagues.

    This program begins by outlining the benefits of adopting a coaching approach to managing people and why leading organizations are transitioning to this more effective approach to raising the performance of their teams. The program will also explore the significantly different attitude that “Manager as Coaches” bring to their workplace and the competencies needed to take a coaching approach to managing and leading people.
