We are living in an era of unprecedented disruption and change. Companies are becoming increasingly aware that managers that top-down, command-and-control leadership is no longer a sustainable leadership approach. In an effort to flatten organizations and empower those individuals who are closest to a problem to also be closest to the solution, many organizations are moving toward a coaching model in which the managers’ role is to facilitate problem solving rather than be the problem-solver. In doing so, managers are learning new skills designed to encourage employees’ development by asking questions and offering support and guidance rather than giving orders and making judgments.

In the Leaders as Coaches webinar, you will learn …

● The different types of coaching — directive, non-directive, and situational

● Scenarios for when to step into a manager role and when to step into the role of coach

● How to become more skilled at listening, questioning, and drawing insights from people

In addition to the GROW model presented in the webinar, leaders will also benefit by growing their proficiency in Social & Emotional Intelligence and Dignity Intelligence. Explore more leadership courses here.
