Program Description

Highlights

This dynamic two-and-a-half-day program uses Positive Organizational Scholarship (POS) concepts to offer a fresh approach to coach your people to be the best they can be, to reach outstanding competency and deliver extraordinary results for your organization.



Who Should Attend

Operating managers and other executives who are charged with developing their staff--and whose own performance evaluation includes employee development benchmarks--will find this program invaluable. This is not a typical coaching program on how to deal with performance deficits; instead, it shows how to work one-to-one with employees to build on their individual strengths and create a team of high-performance members.



Learning Objectives

Extraordinary performance can be nurtured, developed, facilitated--in a word, coached. This unique program uses Positive Organizational Scholarship (POS) concepts to offer a fresh approach to becoming an exceptional coach for your people and your organization. Rather than the traditional coaching emphasis on problems and deficiencies, this program focuses on the positive - the abilities, vitality and successes of your employees--and utilizes positive themes such as appreciation, recognition and high-quality relationship building to expand on employees' strengths and help them be the best they can be.



Unique Features

A unique post-program follow-up and support process helps reinforce the learning and successful application of the program concepts. For six weeks following the class, faculty is available for personalized coaching consultation. After six weeks, a one-hour group conference call will be held to share participant experiences and continue building a network of POS-committed coaches. Participants will be teamed-up to facilitate ongoing POS network building and skills development. Team members will draw upon each other for support, ideas, and feedback as they practice their skills back at work.
