Give Your Leaders and Managers the Best Practices in Coaching Skills

Introducing…

The Leader’s Coaching Toolkit:

Practical coaching methods for leaders to develop people, strengthen the organization, and achieve stretch performance goals

Available via online learning, distance learning, and in-person seminars

Organizations are increasingly discovering the benefits of training managers and leaders in coaching skills. Used at the right time and in the right way, coaching is an effective approach for managers and leaders to develop their employees, increase engagement, and create a culture of leadership and success.

The Center for Executive Coaching offers you the most practical, effective way to bring coaching skills to your leaders and managers. Unlike other coach training programs, our program emphasizes performance, accountability, and results – all in the context of developing employees and managers for the future. That way, you continue to develop a pipeline of leaders in the organization while also setting higher and higher standards for improved performance.

Also, while your managers and leaders complete our training and learn to coach their own people, they also develop their own leadership abilities. That’s because they look at their own leadership style and opportunities for improvement. In that way, our programs provide a triple benefit: The leader/coach develops new skills, the people whom the leader coaches improve skills and performance, and the organization as a whole gets stronger.

The advantages of our program include:

  • Practical. The program is practical. Many coach training programs come out of a life coaching model. Our program is grounded in organizational coaching, and what it takes to succeed in an organizational and leadership setting.
     
  • Results-driven. Coaching is meant to improve performance in measurable, significant ways. It is about getting results. Our training is designed to teach coaching methodologies, tools, and conversations that get results.

  • Step-by-step process. The training leads participants step-by-step through how to use coaching to make a difference and have impact. It is easy to learn and apply what we teach.
     
  • Ongoing support. We stay available for ongoing support.

The content in our program can be customized to meet your needs, and typically includes the following:

Foundations of coaching for managers and leaders. The program begins with an overview of what coaching is, its benefits, and when managers should and should not coach employees. From there, we cover the key coaching conversations, the coaching process, how to set scope and boundaries, how to assess the situation as a coach, how to set goals and track progress, how to establish a coaching plan when appropriate, how to lead a coaching session, how to conclude a coaching session, and how to follow up.

Specific situations. From there, the program covers specific, pressing challenges that come up between leader/manager and employee again and again. For each of these, we provide specific approaches, methodologies, and toolkits that guide participants in how to coach towards a favorable outcome and better results. Situations can include:

  • Engage and mobilize employees, from setting expectations to acknowledging employees and adjusting one’s leadership style to the right situation.
  • Create and follow a development plan.
  • The leader’s dashboard.
  • Career planning.
  • Think comprehensively about complex issues.

  • Develop one’s powerbase of professional relationships in the organization.
  • Lead change.
