MEET YOUR COACH
Hi! I'm Susan Power
I understand how frustrating it can be to receive work from employees that is half complete, and low quality.
Sometimes it seems easier to do the work yourself rather than delegate it and not get the product that you are looking for. There is a better way to build a team and remove yourself as the bottleneck in the process, it is through coaching.
Over the past ten years I have worked with hundreds of managers to coach them on coaching. As an International Coaching Federation, Professional Certified Coach, I have over 2500 hours of coaching experience with managers as well as executives at Fortune 500 organizations.
Our team has created and tested out several coaching frameworks with our private coaching clients and seen the results firsthand. These same frameworks are the ones we have built into this program.
This program includes proven coaching methods so your managers can grow their team, and trust them to deliver high quality work. Your managers will feel confident that their team will be successful doing the work they give them, with their coaching.
By the end of this program, your managers will know how to build a team environment where their employees feel safe seeking out coaching. Your managers will learn how to create a coaching culture.
Frequently Asked Questions
All the training sessions will be recorded and uploaded within the same business day that the session was held for you to review. The group coaching circles are not recorded to create a safe space to practice coaching. To receive the certificate of completion, we allow for one missed group coaching session and one missed training session, maximum. We require your live participation for the majority of the program as it is highly interactive, and you need to practice coaching to learn how to do it effectively. At least two of the training sessions, one group coaching call, all of the individual coaching sessions (scheduled at a time that works best for you and your coach), the coaching diagnostic, and the DiSC assessment must be completed within the six-week program window to receive the certification. If you do not require the certification, you are welcome to attend the portions of the program that are most relevant to you.
The feedback we have received from past participants is that they wish they had signed up for this training earlier as it has saved them significant time and money. You can also experience increased team productivity, reduced turnover, higher quality teamwork deliverables, and a phenomenal employee experience by coaching your team. Once you adopt a coaching approach, your team will accelerate their pace and become a better functioning team. All our trainers and coaches are International Coaching Federation credentialed coaches, as we are dedicated to an exceptional quality program that has a high ROI for all managers who complete it. We feel the program is excellent value based on everything that is included (see above).
We understand that public speaking is out of some managers comfort zone, and it is an area that we do a lot of private coaching on as well (insider tip: feel free to ask us about that) This is why we have designed the Coaching Skills for Manager program to include private one-on-one coaching with the credentialed coach as well as the group coaching. However, we encourage you to push yourself outside of your comfort zone to get the most learning out of the program. Our coaches will not put you on the spot to require you to coach in front of the full group if you choose not to. We do have partner breakout rooms where you can also practice on the group calls in more intimate spaces without a full audience.
If you are unavailable for the upcoming public offering, we would be pleased to register you today for the next available program offering to hold you a spot and get you started on the pre learning materials and diagnostic assessment. These programs run multiple times a year so if you pre-register we will reach out with scheduling details once finalized with the coaches and trainers for that cohort. If you just want access to the training recordings and are uninterested in the certification or practice coaching components, we are finalizing a self-directed pre-recorded online only option, and can provide details upon request. However, we strongly recommend you consider the full program as that is truly the only way to really learn how to coach effectively by practicing and receiving feedback from your peers and an ICF coach. Like riding a bike, you cannot learn by video only, you really do need to experience coaching to fully learn how to coach effectively.
By the end of this program, your managers will have a deep understanding of coaching frameworks and skills, having practiced proven coaching techniques, enabling them to feel comfortable embracing coachable moments. Your managers will increase their confidence on effectively coaching their team.
Join today and start creating a positive work environment, fostering strong relationships, and empowering managers to coach their team to reach their full potential with coaching. Your managers will be more engaged coaching their team to find their own answers, rather than just telling them what to do.
