Coaching Conversations

This On-Demand event was originally presented on October 30, 2018 (60 min)


Today, many organizations are moving towards creating what is known as a coaching culture. The goal is to help empower, encourage and teach through an open conversation between managers and employees. Through coaching, you help people become more self-aware. You turn experiences into learning opportunities. You reinforce strengths and explore challenges. You help people take responsibility for their actions and their development. And, it all starts with effective coaching conversations.

It is thought that when enough people within an organization learn to hold coaching conversations, the entire organizational culture begins to shift. As a result, an environment is created where people are willing to share their ideas and suggestions for improvement more freely. In turn, raising morale across the entire organization.

Whether you’re a professional coach, employee, or manager anyone can benefit from learning basic coaching skills. In this session, participants examine a four-step strategy for leading impactful coaching conversations. This four-step strategy is designed to be effective in a variety of contexts, including performance improvement, career development, specific skill development, and overall team performance.

Attendees will learn

  • How to set the stage for an impactful coaching conversation.
  • To identify the coaching opportunity.
  • How to analyze available options for improvement or change.
  • Ways to develop an action plan.
  • How to navigate tough conversations.
