Why should you Attend:
Research and experience shows that employees perform better when positively coached, rather than being constantly evaluated. Researchers have also seen that people with more positive attitudes are more likely to succeed in their jobs and careers. Coaching fosters more positive employee attitude as a key component of development and enhances positive attitude through positive support.
Executive development is a critical aspect of all organizations. In 1996, training and education efforts aimed at managers totaled $14.5 billion in the U.S. (Vicere, 1998). Successful organizations have also discovered that on-going training of the workforce is necessary to remain competitive. However, without coaching, training loses its effectiveness rapidly, and often fails to achieve the lasting behavioral changes needed. While training is an “event”, coaching is a process, which is a valuable next step to training to insure that the new knowledge imparted, actually becomes learned behavior.
Moving forwards change will be the norm and individual resilience and performance will be crucial to team and organizational success. Coaching leverages individual strengths and abilities for maximum performance.
In this session we will discuss how adults get better at something that is important to them, and the 5 key approaches they can take. This includes career, home life, community relationships, parenting all of the above. Lots of people hope for improvement in their situations, yet hope is neither a strategy nor an action plan.
During the session, the speaker will discuss how people get stuck, how to get out of one’s own comfort zone, make meaningful progress towards goals that are important to the listener.
Self-help has been around for a very long time. Walk into any major book store and you will see an entire section devoted to self-help. The key word is “self”. If you are able to read a book, and take control of your own change process and achieve your goals, good for you. Statistically, you probably won’t, or you will start to make progress and then fall back to old ways. A more predictable way to achieve your goals is to have an accountability partner, someone who is dedicated to you and your achievement of your goals, whatever those goals may be. This session will help you sort out how you can get better, faster.
