Coaching Remotely - Virtual

About the program

During the early days of the pandemic, it was hard enough to simply "manage" people remotely. As we settle in for the long haul, it’s not enough to manage. We need to coach - to help people grow and develop into their new roles, new expectations and the ’new normal’. Growth gives meaning to pressure, and a sense of progress is essential if our people are going to stay engaged over the long-term under uncertainty.

In this highly practical half-day program, you will explore the three plays that great coaches consistently execute using four skills, and how to execute this "3x4 Coaching" model in a remote environment.

In this program you will learn:

  • How to build coaching relationships remotely
  • The key elements required to inspire peak performance
  • Communication skills of top coaches
  • How to uncover coachable challenges, issues and goals
  • A variety of coaching styles to meet the needs of staff as they adjust to new contexts and roles

You'll leave with highly practical tools – including models for feedback and a bank of coaching questions - to execute the 3 plays of coaching in a remote environment.
