Maximizing Employee Development and Performance

what you will DISCOVER
This experiential workshop will teach you how to apply coaching techniques that will foster increased collaboration, and augment employee engagement and alignment in your organization. Learn how to coach to drive performance. When you choose to lead and embrace a non-directional coaching approach, you will find that you will need to talk less, listen more and give fewer orders.

At the base of non-directive coaching is the skill of asking powerful questions which serve to raise the coachee's own awareness of the topic under discussion. For example, questions which encourage the coachee to consider and analyze all options, or questions, which challenge the coachee to dispute their own opinions, assumptions or views.
