Overview of Keynote
Coaching in the workplace is one of the many practices leaders need to learn and master to support their teams. It’s not how good you are that matters, it’s how good your employees can be, and how well you can unleash their potential, that counts. Coaching is increasingly relevant to developing people and to organizations as a whole. It can provide a new way to understand and assess people’s behaviours, leadership styles, attitudes, social skills, and their performance potential.
The advantages of coaching can be broken down into the following five categories:
Perspective: Coaching provides an opportunity to experience fresh perspectives on personal and professional challenges.
Accountability: Participating in ongoing coaching conversations with your employees will ensure they are held accountable for their actions.
Integral: Integral means leaving nothing out; taking a holistic view. It is critical to remember that an employee brings their entire self to work, not just their career persona. Coaching allows for an opportunity to mitigate inappropriate reactions to potential triggers they may not be aware of.
Progress: Coaching helps transition an employee into a high level of management by providing them with the tools and techniques they need to improve.
Confidence: Regular coaching provides an invaluable space for personal development and increases the employees’ confidence in their abilities.

WHY SHOULD YOUR LEADERS KNOW HOW TO COACH?
Managing people is no longer just about supervision, and “resting on your laurels” of being a productivity expert. Managing others is about being a leader that develops others and coaches for success. However, all too many times it’s too easy to get stuck and to lose that leading edge. How can you be an effective leader that people will want to learn from?
Coaching provides an opportunity for your employees to experience fresh perspectives on organizational challenges and opportunities, improved thinking and decision-making skills, enhanced interpersonal effectiveness, better communication, and increased employee engagement. Emotional Intelligence is the foundation for our coaching sessions, whether it be individual or group coaching. We show you how emotional intelligence will help to develop the leadership skills that will take you and your teams further.
People want to accomplish great things often get stuck along the way. Many leaders seem to know intuitively what they need to do to move forward, but few of them actually stop doing it themselves and teach others to succeed. Great leaders take the time to ask questions so their employees can unearth a vast array of solutions for themselves, empowering their teams to learn how to enhance their own effectiveness and team success.
