Spotlight: Coaching Skills for Managers

Are you interested in applying principles of coaching in your interactions with your employees? Why coaching? In the Harvard Business Review, Herminia Ibarra and Anne Scoular write that in a time of rapid and disruptive change, organizations need to move toward a model in which “managers give support and guidance rather than instructions, and employees learn how to adapt to constantly changing environments in ways that unleash fresh energy, innovation, and commitment.” That model iscoaching: the art of asking key questions and giving focused feedback, while encouraging employees totake ownership of their progress.

Join JPro and Catherine Bell, Professional Certified Coach and nonprofit consultant, for an interactive Spotlight Master Class to level-up your coaching skills, within the context of your role as a manager. This workshop will introduce you core principles of coaching and will explore how you can use coaching techniques to bring out the best in your employees. Participants will identify and build on their existing strengths as managers and will practice key coaching skills in a supportive setting. No previous training in coaching is required.

This class is for you if:

  • You directly supervise at least one person within your organization.
  • You want to improve both morale and results on your team.
  • You are unsure about how to best support your high performing staff members.
  • You want help addressing performance problems on your team.

This class is not for you if:

  • You don’t currently have any direct reports.      
  • You are already a trained and certified coach.

By the end of this class you will:

  • Understand the core principles of coaching.
  • Be able to distinguish coaching from other modalities (such as therapy, mentorship, and instruction).
  • Identify situations when a coaching approach would be advantageous.
  • Respond to common challenges that come up in coaching.
  • Have the opportunity to practice coaching with peers.
