Coaching for Results

Discover one of the best ways of achieving results while building relationships - a coaching approach to holding conversations. More than just a way of improving a specific technical or leadership skill, coaching is a way for an organization to increase critical thinking skills in everyone and generate more innovative approaches to solving problems. Learn the underpinnings of a 'coaching mind set' and the fundamental coaching skills needed to implement a coaching culture. You will develop a coaching framework that you can integrate into your current role and demonstrate consistently to others. Increase your ability to ask powerful questions and work collaboratively with others: direct reports, colleagues or more senior managers. Learn how to increase your ability to listen, paraphrase and get information from others that is critical for change and growth, and to ask questions that help others develop a variety of perspectives and the ability to choose new and different solutions and action steps.
