Most great leadership doesn’t happen during boardroom presentations or at annual meetings. It happens in hallways and on telephone calls. It happens in cubicles and over lunch. It happens in project status meetings and in routine one-on-one discussions. In fact several authors assert that “most leadership happens one conversation at a time.” This highly-experiential workshop is designed to help the participants enhance the quality of their day-to-day conversations by equipping them to be coach-like in all of their interactions with others. They will learn potent, practical skills they can use immediately to make all of their conversations more impactful. This is a hands-on, practical development experience during which participants will be introduced to the key principles upon which all great coaching conversations are based, learn The Three Coaching Power Tools and be provided an opportunity to experiment with these tools in a real-time Coaching Experiential.
This workshop has been designed to help participants increase their ability to engage in coaching conversations that have a significant, positive impact on others. An important theme of this workshop is that leaders need to move beyond simply giving counsel, advice and direction in their conversations if they want to help others perform at their best and accelerate their career development. Participants will study the three key phases of a great coaching conversation (Discovery, Creation and Commitment) as well as to learn and practice The Three Core Coaching Skills necessary to excel in these conversations:
The Coaching Experiential and the Coach-Like Conversation are key learning elements in the workshop. These elements provide the participants opportunities to experiment with and practice the skills approaches and concepts that are introduced in the workshop. This workshop can serve as a continuation of The Powerful Coaching Conversation I or can be delivered as a stand- alone learning event.
