Overview: 

Leadership involves giving both support and challenging opportunities to employees. Knowing how and when to be a leader is an essential skill that can benefit both you and your organization. During this three- day workshop, you will deep dive the value of leadership, including the principles of a coaching model and techniques to develop performing teams. You will have the opportunity to hone your leadership coaching skills, and discover a common language and overarching processes to help you move to the next level!

Topics: 

Creating the Foundation for being a Successful Coach
Coaching is a proven Leadership Model that will provide significant support to you as a leader and will also support you in driving results through your team(s). We will first examine the foundations and critical success factors of teams and organizations that leverage the Leadership Coaching Model. As well, we will identify “highly effective bahaviours” needed to coach performing and sucessful teams.

Strengthening Communication Skills
Effective communications is a key aspect of successful coaching. Participants will review coaching best practices, explore different communication skills and create their own action plan for success. We will also examine two key coaching tools: asking powerful and probing questions, and listening.

Looking at Self-Disclosure
As a coach, we need to develop the skills and competencies of our teams. As such, we need to embrace the leadership skills that we can be even better at. Hence, we will look at our own leadership competencies and develop action plans for individual growth and development.
Developing Critical Coaching Skills
Participants will examine case studies and have the opportunity to practice important coaching skills in small groups. They will also be able to see demonstrations and examples of effective coaching in various interesting and difficult situations.

Developing a Performing Team
As leaders, many of us have our “Go-To” people and we often rely on a small percentage of our team to achieve much of the results. As we continue to refine our leadership coaching skills, we will learn how to expand our number of “Go-To” people and work with ALL our employees to improve their performance.
Leaders often go home at the end of the day exhausted by the number of emergencies and problems they had to manage, and frustrated that they were not able to find time to work on THEIR OWN top priorities. Through the leadership coaching model, we will deep dive the skills of empowerment and accountability, and examine tools and processes that coaches can use to help gain buy- in for change from employees.

Providing Performance Feedback
As leaders, some of the most difficult conversations we have (and sometimes avoid) with our employees, are the ones that involve “Feedback for Improvement”. We will explore how to provide such feedback in a much more effective way, by leveraging the model of leadership coaching skills. We will also have an opportunity to discuss types of feedback, learn some useful tips and to practice these skills is a safe learning environment.
