Empower those you lead to be self-reliant problem solvers.

Developing Coaching Leaders

This 3-day training will help leaders see the difference between managing employees and being a coaching leader.

What Is Developing Coaching Leaders?

In today’s world, the strongest and most effective leaders know they have the responsibility to develop their people to bring out their best. When leaders have the mindset and skill set to develop, inspire, and unlock their people’s potential – teams and organizations have higher engagement, better retention, and overall healthier culture. Taking a coaching perspective in leadership helps not only develop their people but also helps them take ownership, responsibility and accountability.

This 3-day training will help leaders see the difference between the preconceived notions of managing others and the benefits of being a coaching leader by learning skills and using tools to work with their people more effectively. After each session, participants will be responsible to coach one peer for a total of 4 hours to put into practice what they learned in the classroom training. This training is highly activity-based with many options to practice the skills learned. Developing Coaching Leaders was designed to take the leader to the next level in developing their people.

Developing Coaching Leaders is available in person at our training facility in Grand Rapids, Michigan, in a virtual training format, or onsite at your company anywhere in the country.
