Understanding and Practicing Coaching

More and more organizations are turning their attention towards employee engagement and development. Coaching is a key skill in creating a fully engaged workforce and productive culture that empowers employees to excel. 

Join us for an interactive workshop on everything about coaching. We will start by differentiating the roles of managing, coaching, mentoring and therapy, then move to highlighting the role of coaching in developing future leaders in an organization. 

We will use the GROW model to define necessary stages in a coaching session. This is not going to be one of those “death by PowerPoint” workshops, instead, attendants will participate in multiple exercises as well as practice peer and/or group coaching using the techniques discussed.
