Learn How a Coaching Leadership Style Can Result in Engaged Employees

Coaching Your Way to Engaged Employees presents the benefits of a coaching leadership style and offers strategies to implement coaching with their teams. Coaching leadership style can be described as creating a strong partnership with employees resulting in high engagement and results. This leadership style is based around finding each employee’s strengths, spots of weakness, growth opportunities and goals. When employees are a part of this process they are invested in the goals of self-improvement and growth on their teams. 

This online program will discuss diversity in the workplace, including generational differences. Regardless of generation, all employees share the need for appreciation, clear vision, communication, and feedback. Coaching leadership will help remove stereotypes and encourage communication between leaders and employees. Participants will have the opportunity to practice the essential skills of designing alliance, active listening, and asking thoughtful questions. 

Participants can expect to:

  • Define what coaching is and how it is different from training, mentoring, and counseling.
  • Identify situations where coaching can be used and effective
  • Practice coaching skills and identify when to use each skill
  • Evaluate coaching skills and the coaching skills of others
  • Design their coach approach for employees and direct reports
