Managing and motivating an increasingly diverse workforce, along with a blend of virtual, hybrid and distributed teams, poses unique challenges. To meet these challenges and positively influence employee performance, today’s managers must shift from traditional management approaches to more of a coaching role. When managers provide guidance and support through coaching, teams are more high-performing, collaborative, and engaged.
This session will highlight practical tips and resources to help you and your managers build the kind of coaching capabilities needed for team and organizational success.
Why you should Attend
A coaching style of management improves performance, engagement, collaboration and innovation. It creates an environment where people feel able to speak up, learn, develop and contribute. It also helps to encourage clarity, focus, effective problem solving and decision-making.
