As a learning and development professional, a large percentage of your time is spent coaching and developing others. Your role as coach is an important part of your day-to-day responsibilities. It might be in the classroom; the hallway; in a team meeting; or, on a conference call, the coaching skills needed to be successful in today’s challenging workplaces are crucial. In addition, L&D professionals serve as models of the behavior expected throughout the organization. Like it or not, others look to you to demonstrate coaching at its finest!
This highly interactive session will examine the important role coaching plays in our organizations and challenge participants to examine and develop their own coaching skills and behaviors.
