Coaching Conversations-A New Approach to Communicating in the Workplace

This skills-based training program is designed to equip leaders and managers to become more self-aware with core coaching skills and a framework to have coaching conversations in the workplace. Many organizations, researchers, and professionals have identified coaching as a critical leadership and management competency. Leaders who learn the foundation, fundamentals and framework of professional coaches can shift from a traditional managing mindset to a coaching mindset. As a result, trust strengthens, performance improves, and employee engagement increases.
