Your team desires a healthy coaching relationship with you, the manager. They are interested in career growth and development and are looking to you for help. It’s imperative that you get on board and not miss the opportunity to influence the next generation.
What exactly is coaching? Simply put, it is a more effective delivery system for training that helps managers make behavioral changes needed for growth. In coaching, you are not bringing the answer, you are using a system (a process) for helping your employees discover the answers. In order to be an effective coach you must be clear on the competencies that have impact on your organization’s bottom line. Measure them, provide support for growth and change, and then measure again.
Remember this… you are a change agent within your organization. You have the opportunity to provide the leadership needed influence long-term success in your organization, rather than an obstacle to progress.
As a result of this session, you will:
Learn the characteristics of an effective coach.
Identify coaching opportunities in your organization.
Identify five coaching techniques.
Identify questions to use when coaching.
Discuss the importance of positive reinforcement.
Leading With Emotional Intelligence
Emotional Intelligence is the ability or capacity to perceive, assess, and manage the emotions of one's self, and of others. EQ, or Emotional Quotient, is how Emotional Intelligence is measured. Emotions have the potential to get in the way of our most important business and personal relationships. According to John Kotter of Harvard Business School: “Because of the furious pace of change in business today, difficult to manage relationships sabotage more business than anything else - it is not a question of strategy that gets us into trouble; it is a question of emotions.”
Leadership success does not happen by accident. It is a process that occurs as we choose how to deal with events and circumstances placed in front of us. Each moment of our life provides an opportunity to work toward victory by expanding our visions, “stretching out” to accomplish our goals and assuming full responsibility for living, growing and contributing.
Leading with Emotional Intelligence is a workshop focused on helping managers increase their level of Emotional Intelligence so they may increase their capacity to deal with stressful situations in a calm and confident manner. In addition, they will learn to build strong lines of communication with their subordinates and coach them to be optimistic problem solvers.
During this session participants will learn to:
Identify the top 10 leadership mistakes managers make.
Enhance competencies necessary for being a successful leader.
Identify individual strengths and opportunities for improvement.
Develop an action plan for success.
Leading in the "New Normal"
Leadership is a rich and meaningful word. It stirs up a sense of idealism, excitement, hope and courage. It is a word that inspires us to be our best, a word that we associate with those who have made the greatest difference in our lives. In short, leadership has always been a significant part of the answer to whatever challenges we may face.
These are unprecedented times and leaders everywhere are being challenged to lead in the “new normal.” This is a time when:
Technology challenges our productivity
Globalization affects even the smallest domestic organizations
Individualism exists without a safety net
Time, our greatest asset, doesn’t seem to be on our side anymore
Leading in the “New Normal” is a workshop focused on helping you and your organization:
Understand the nature of this new reality
Learn the importance of aligning your organization to this new reality
Accept some of the difficult realities of your organization
Learn to succeed in the here and now
The Trust Imperative
When trust is absent, relationships are characterized by an adversarial attitude: me vs. you; us vs. them. Rather than goodwill, there are deep and hidden animosities. Respect is lost and our performance is compromised as our energies go into manipulation and protection rather than working together towards a shared vision. We believe that the most successful organizations of the 21st century will be those that know how to create a climate of trust and goodwill among their employees.
Appreciate the need for a collaboration in our interdependent society.
Learn the definition and key elements of trust.
Evaluate the consequences of high and low trust within an organization.

Emotional Intelligence: Lead with Intregrity
Masters are the victors of life, those who step up to the challenges and opportunities of life with the courage, determination and wisdom to win the private and public victories. Mastery does not happen by accident. It is a process that occurs as we interact effectively with the events and circumstances of our lives. Each moment of our lives provides an opportunity to practice mastery by expanding our visions, awakening the faculties of our minds and our hearts, and assuming full responsibility for living, growing and contributing.

Harnessing Harmful Behavior
In this workshop, you will discover that harmful behavior is not a subjective matter; it is objective. When trust is absent, managing harmful behavior can create adversarial attitudes, and rather than goodwill being created, deep and hidden animosities flourish. In addition, respect is lost and performance is compromised as our energies go into manipulation and protection rather than working together towards a shared vision. We believe that the most successful organizations of the 21st century will be those that know how to create a climate of trust and goodwill among their employees.
Learn to confront behavior that fails to meet your expectations.
