Our change leadership roadmap and collaborative support process will provide you with a customized vehicle to define, lead, and succeed at necessary change.

Overview

Supervisors, front-line leaders, and leaders in the trenches become great, in part, because of great coaching. Steady, regular, strategic coaching. It is perhaps the most valuable type of development a supervisor can receive. And, although it can come from various sources, we believe that it comes best when it comes from the supervisor’s direct boss. That’s right, the person to whom that front-line leader reports.

We also recognize that the “boss” is not always fully WILLING or ABLE to provide great coaching. That is why the Strategic Coaching Method is such a crucial part of the Strategic Supervision process.

Our STRATEGIC COACHING WORKSHOP is typically a two-day learning experience that provides a practical roadmap and set of proven tools for coaching workplace leaders in an ongoing, intentional, and strategic manner.

Through a variety of hands-on exercises participants will practice a five-step coaching method that can be applied immediately on the job. The Strategic Coaching Method is NOT something the coach does to the coachee. It is a process that the coach and coachee work through together. The outcome is an increase in both operating RESULTS and leadership CAPACITY.
