About the course

Successful coaching is challenging and rewarding—but coaching remotely or in a virtual environment demands all-new rules.

The countless ways in which professionals now communicate means business can be conducted almost anywhere. This has introduced the element of distance (both real and virtual) between coach and subject. Coaching skills that once worked so effectively face-to-face won’t get the job done today. For a remote or virtual environment, coaches must develop an entirely new battery of skills—from innovative ways of listening to new measures of coaching success. This new Live Online Seminar covers it all in four dynamic lessons, with a sharp focus on skill-building and modeling techniques that will enable coaches to move their teams to the next level of professional development regardless of distance.
