Event overview

Learn more about our team

Coaching skills can be applied to a variety of situations. Common coaching situations involve the "big picture” view of identifying a satisfying life path, or a more detailed view of improving performance in specific areas. In all situations, coaching is about tapping into a potential that would otherwise be idle, and using it for the benefit of the employee and the company. According to the International Coach Foundation, coaching improves work performance by 70 percent time management by 57 percent, and team effectiveness by 51 percent.

This course reviews some basic coaching situations and expands upon them to give participants a chance to practice applying the skills in different situations. This course will establish the context of a situation, then allow the participants a chance to practice or evaluate a portion of a coaching session. As a result you will be able to target specific areas for improvement, motivate and inspire individuals, communicate more effectively as a coach, and increase job satisfaction for your employees and yourself.
