Coaching for High Performance - Virtual

About the program

Designed to equip managers with the tools, skills, and mindset of world-class coaches, Coaching for High Performance will help you empower the people you coach, increasing their commitment and improving their performance.

Coaches are leaders who do all they can to help people improve and succeed. Through the integration of examples from the sports and business worlds, you’ll work with an innovative framework to create a clear picture of what great coaches can achieve—and how they manage to achieve it.

In this virtual program, individuals learn the concepts and skills of a coaching style of management that builds commitment, drives employee engagement, gets results, and can be integrated into their existing repertoire of leadership skills.

Enrollment for this program is limited to maintain low student-facilitator ratios.

This program is dedicated to four overarching themes:

  • Mindset & Feedback (Live, instructor-led): The experiences that lead to becoming a manager rarely prepare people to be an effective coach. With this in mind, participants will lay a foundation for coaching that begins with defining coaching and understanding the mindset of a coach. This developmental bias allows a coach to encourage their people to see what they are capable of, figure out their next step and help them achieve their personal best. Using their own real workplace situations, participants are involved in a series of large group, small group, and triad exercises designed to demonstrate the impact of competent relevant feedback. Participants learn and practice using a feedback tool called BID to deliver reinforcing and corrective feedback that inspires commitment and a growth mindset in the people they are leading.
  • Recognition (Asynchronous): This self-directed module explores how recognition is instrumental in building relationships, maintaining motivation, and providing clarity on what drives high performance. Participants are challenged to consider how different people need to be recognized in different ways and will be inspired with new ways to give effective recognition in their environment.
  • Questioning & Listening & GROW (Live, instructor-led): Often individuals find themselves in leadership roles on the basis of their functional expertise and problem-solving abilities. This can lead to a common leadership challenge known as the “curse of knowledge”. Participants will identify key areas where their people require clarity in order to be committed and perform at the highest levels. Activities and skills are brought together in a culminating pairs exercise that provides an opportunity for participants to experience, first hand, how truly effective questions can allow people to solve their own challenges and how difficult but powerful respectful listening can be. Each participant has the opportunity to coach a colleague and be coached by a colleague on a coaching challenge they choose that is important to them using the GROW model - a simple map to guide your coaching discussions and GROW your people. Asking these questions and actively listening to the responses will unlock solutions and build commitment to follow-through.
  • Confronting (Asynchronous)Participants learn how to effectively prepare themselves and the opening statement of a challenging conversation building on the skills developed throughout the program. They explore how requiring a change in another individual triggers resistance and they identify different forms that resistance can take and how to move through the resistance to address the change that is required.
