About the course

The old ways of leading people are over. A "command and control" approach to leadership results in lack of alignment, conflict, low commitment, low accountability, lack of harmony and low profitability. Top performing managers know that a coaching approach to management yields greater results and yet, creating the time to coach is a major obstacle for many leaders. This program focuses on how to coach in a time-efficient manner that creates incredible buy-in and performance. In this highly interactive program participants will: learn how to create ownership and urgency from those they lead; practice specific coaching skills and tools to bring out the best in others; learn keys and a format to managing their coaching time; explore a 12-minute coaching model that creates positive accountability and results; coach each other on real issues that impact their business; work with specific tools to help blocked or stuck employees; and learn how to coach different personalities on their team. Participants will leave this session with the skills and processes necessary to create accountability, positive morale and phenomenal results in a time-efficient format.
