A Professional Development Workshop for Manager-Coaches
About the Workshop
This two-day program (four half-days if held virtually) is for managers who influence or coach others. This is for technical leaders (e.g., engineers) who regularly delegate, provide feedback and/or coach others (e.g., help others learn to solve problems).
It builds on the foundation laid in Leadership and the Middle Path and helps participants develop one-to-one helping/coaching skills.
The program helps participants…
Recognize, understand, and work effectively with others who have different work styles. (Participants complete a DiSC inventory and receive a comprehensive DiSC profile and job-aid to help them gain insights in this area.)
Coach in long-game situations (e.g., career development conversations)
Help others develop skills taught in Leadership and the Middle Path (e.g., how to think systemically, get out of common mental “traps,” solve knotty problems, have better difficult conversations, make better decisions, balance inquiry and advocacy)
As in the previous program, participants bring real-life situations/issues they are working on to the program. We apply the concepts, principles and frameworks taught in the class to those situations—we do that in class and then again, four- to six-weeks later, in follow-up practice sessions.
