Session Description: As we face the post-pandemic workplace realities, such as hybrid work, creating more inclusive teams, addressing employee mental health and burnout, and overcoming talent shortages (to name a few), there has been a significant shift in the skills organizations need from their managers. To fully leverage the power of managers, it is critical to amplify their skills to inspire and motivate the best from their employees.
The research is clear – the best way to drive real, sustainable changes in your managers’ behaviors is through coaching. Coaching is not only an extremely effective method for ACCELERATING growth and improving performance, but studies suggest organizations can expect as much as a 788 times ROI (Metrix Global Study). And research has shown that the combination of coaching with training increases productivity and performance 4X more than training alone.
During this interactive session, Jamie Lewis Smith, PhD will provide attendees with an overview and understanding of what leadership coaching is, the situations in which it is most impactful and when it is not, things to consider when enlisting the support of a coach for your managers, and the steps you can take to harness the power of this developmental tool. Attendees will have the opportunity to assess their own organization’s practices and leave with actions they can take to leverage coaching to transform their managers into talent maximizers.
