  • Developing Coaching Leaders

    In today's world, the strongest and most effective leaders know they have the responsibility to develop their people to bring out their best. When leaders have the mindset and skill set to develop, inspire and unlock their people's potential - teams and organizations have higher engagement, better retention and overall healthier culture. The coaching perspective in leadership ensures not only developing their people but helping them take ownership, responsibility and be accountable. 

    This 3-day training will help leaders see the difference between the preconceived notions of managing others and the benefits of being a coaching leader by learning skills and using tools to work with their people more effectively. After each session, participants will be responsible to coach one peer for a total of 4 hours each to put into practice what they learned in the classroom training. This training is highly activity-based with many options to practice the skills learned. Developing Coaching Leaders was designed to take the leader to the next level in developing their people.
