The Coaching Imperative

We are pleased to announce a three-part webinar series that will explore one of the most important questions facing organizations today: What do leaders need to do to move beyond being performance assessors to become true catalysts of high performance and career acceleration for their team members? 

In this very relevant, timely and practical educational series, Gregg Thompson, President of Bluepoint Leadership Development, will draw upon the firm’s many years of experience delivering the highly-regarded Leader as Coach Workshop  to thousands of leaders each year to provide the latest insights, ideas and research in this most critical area of leadership development.

1.February 15: Beyond the Performance Appraisal – making the difficult shift to becoming a true coach

This opening webinar is designed to help leaders answer the vexing question, “What now?” With the near-universal abandonment of performance appraisal systems, supervisors have been left with little more than their day-to-day conversations to effectively manage their team members. Done well, these conversations are sufficient. In this fast-paced, highly-practical webinar, leaders will be introduced to the qualities they need to exhibit, the relationships they need to build and the conversations they need to have in order to move beyond being performance assessors to becoming true catalysts of high performance for their team members.


2.March 15: Creating a Coaching Culture - Making it Stick

Many progressive organizations are making significant investments in training managers, supervisors and even individual contributors at all levels to become better coaches, but then what? How can senior leaders create cultures in which coaching for high performance and career acceleration is the norm? How can they create a true coaching culture? This webinar will explore The 7 Key Characteristics of a Coaching Culture and will challenge senior leaders to set personal agendas and exemplify the behaviors that will have the most immediate and sustained impact on their organizations.


3.April 19: Developing Master Coaches – building internal experts to guide the way

While the judicious use of external trainers, facilitators and coaches can be very helpful in equipping leaders to be more coach-like in their interactions with others, the most progressive and future-looking organizations recognize that they are best served by building an internal cohort of coaching experts who can both provide high levels of coaching as well as teach and mentor leaders throughout the organization. Participants in this webinar will be introduced to a highly effective framework that any organization can use to select, develop and utilize an internal cadre of Master Coaches.
