Coaching is foundational to strong leadership. Empowering employees to be engaged in your organization’s vision and strategic goals while being accountable for contributing to results is a key executive responsibility.

Through “Essential Coaching Skills for Results” you will build your coaching competence by learning about powerful coaching principles, theory and skills. Participants will be able to immediately apply the skills they learn in engaging both individuals and teams to maximize performance and create a coaching culture that supports rapid change and creates growth in organizational results.

This program is designed for Executives, Leaders, senior HR Professionals, and Entrepreneurs, in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors who want to create a more collaborative work culture that is focused on accountability for results.

A case study of coaching at a national telecommunications company in Canada will be shared to demonstrate how creating a coaching culture can build and sustain organizational change and generate customer and employee retention and revenue growth.

Through theory and practical, hands-on learning, you will be exposed to core coaching skills. Be prepared to both be coached and to coach in this experiential learning environment.

To further your learning and application of coaching skills into your workplace we also offer four one-on-one executive coaching sessions from a credentialed coach, for an additional fee.

The critical thinking that it enables in people is inspiring.”

Optional Mentor Coaching

Participants who wish to become credentialed by the ICF require 10 mentor coaching hours.

The focus of Mentor Coaching is to enhance learning and implementation of coaching through being coached by a professional certified coach, and through demonstrating coaching, usually a peer or direct report, and receiving feedback.

Coaching can be done in a group setting or one-to-one. Both options take place after the 3-day training. One-to-one training can be booked right away with a coach you select. The group sessions will take place over a 7 week period, with the start date TBD.
