In this workshop we'll explore leaders must shift their thinking when exploring how they would get something done, when trying to coach someone else in getting it done. Topics explored include:
- How our styles may unconsciously influence our coaching approach
- Picking the right coaching approach based on the individual's competence and motivation
- Noticing and calling out good performance effectively
- A simple structure for setting people up for success with a task/responsibility
Why you should Attend
One of the biggest thing's leaders find challenging when they move from an individual contributor to a manager is learning how to effectively "coach others up". Suddenly the things that got you promoted to manager (technical competence) don't matter as much as what is needed when coaching people on your team. This workshop focuses on the skills and thinking that go into coaching people to develop.
Areas Covered in the Session
- The four style domains and how they interact
- How to approach an employee who knows how to do the work, but for some reason is not engaging
- Structures for reinforcing good behavior and confronting unhelpful behavior
- The importance of explaining the "why"
