Coaching Skills for Leaders

1 Full Day  |  .6 CEUs

The Challenge

Coaching Skills for Leaders is for busy leaders and managers who are increasing their leadership skills through coaching those issues related to individual and team performance. Leaders who practice the skills of coaching realize dependably higher levels of performance for themselves and their teams than those who do not. They learn principles that increase their ability to make better decisions develop their leadership and influence others for effectiveness.

Being able to listen deeply, ask powerful questions (rather than telling), and provide effective, authentic feedback enables leaders to drive performance and have a more fulfilled, productive staff.

The Solution

Coaching Skills for Leaders™ is a highly interactive, one-day intensive program that adds valuable coaching skills to enhance the leadership skills of participants.

In this one-day training participants will:

  1. Participate in a Coaching Self-Assessment
  2. Gain an understanding of what coaching is and is not
  3. Receive a tool for determining if a person is coachable
  4. Learn coaching practices:
    • Active Listening
    • Asking, Not Telling
    • Reframe the Situation
    • Effective Feedback Across Generations

Participants receive immediate feedback from each other and the workshop leader.

During the program participants learn to have effective conversations focusing on issues related to individual and team performance, growth, and development. They learn quick, effective, and reliable approaches to build their ability to engage in coaching with direct reports, peers and managers.

Coaching Skills for Leaders™ - participants practice coaching with real life scenarios using a four-phase coaching model that provides a structure for coaching conversations. In round-table rehearsals, participants practice and receive feedback on what worked, what was challenging, and receive reinforcement of key learnings.

The Results

Those who complete the program will:

~  Know when to coach and when not to coach
~  Drive performance through giving and getting direct feedback
~  Increase the chances that their team members will "own" their actions and results
~  Experience increased confidence in direct conversations
~  Communicate more openly and effectively
~  Retain key individuals by developing and supporting them


This program is designed for anyone who has direct reports; anyone who wants to work better with their peers; and anyone who wants to see better performance in others
