Who should attend

This program is designed for anyone in a management role, including those new to managing within virtual / work-from-home settings, as well as leaders hoping to boost performance within established virtual teams.

About the course

During the early days of the pandemic, it was hard enough to simply "manage" people remotely. As we settle in for the long haul, it’s not enough to manage. We need to coach - to help people grow and develop into their new roles, new expectations and the ’new normal’. Growth gives meaning to pressure, and a sense of progress is essential if our people are going to stay engaged over the long-term under uncertainty.

In this highly practical half-day program, you will explore the three plays that great coaches consistently execute using four skills, and how to execute this "3x4 Coaching" model in a remote environment.

In this program you will learn:

  • How to build coaching relationships remotely
  • The key elements required to inspire peak performance
  • Communication skills of top coaches
  • How to uncover coachable challenges, issues and goals
  • A variety of coaching styles to meet the needs of staff as they adjust to new contexts and roles

You'll leave with highly practical tools – including models for feedback and a bank of coaching questions - to execute the 3 plays of coaching in a remote environment.

Personal benefits

This program will help you become a better coach when you can't be face-to-face (and, incidentally, it will also help when you're face-to-face too!). You’ll be better equipped to:

  • Give star performers the feedback, recognition and growth opportunities that keep them motivated
  • Address blocks to performance in a constructive and productive way that doesn’t sap engagement
  • Maintain motivation through a period of change and uncertainty
  • Consistently deliver results while building engagement

Organizational benefits

Organizations will benefit from facilitating their leaders' development. They will:

  • Improve employee productivity and the ability to adapt to the 'new normal'
  • Build stronger loyalty among key talent to an organization and manager who is invested in their growth and development during a challenging time
  • Maintain momentum on the development of key talent in the midst of disruption
  • Improve employee engagement


The program covers the following curriculum:

  • The principles of building coaching relationships remotely
  • The three core things coaches need to focus on: clarity, competence and recognition
  • The four communication skills that allow you to coach remotely: questions, listening, feedback, and confronting
  • How to build clarity around expectations and values when remote
  • How to ask effective questions to uncover the information and root issues that you need to coach to
  • How to adjust your coaching style based on where people are at as they adjust to new responsibilities
