About this Event

That's why we're bringing you Coaching Fundamentals: a Communitech Academy program where you'll focus on the techniques and conversations that will help you build productive and trusting relationships with your employees. Polish up on or advance your coaching skills as we go through examples of formal and informal ways to help your employees and in turn, help your organization succeed.

Learning outcomes:

By the end of the program, participants will be set to adopt a coach approach and:

  • Identify how coaching helps employees develop and find their own solutions and helps organizations.
  • Describe barriers to coaching and ways to overcome them.
  • Understand how coaching helps managers shift efforts to higher-value activities.
  • Develop coaching skills (active listening, acknowledging, asking questions) to be better equipped to have coaching conversations.
  • Practice having an informal coaching conversation.
  • Practice having a formal coaching conversation.

This program is best for*:

  • Individuals new to people leadership or looking to adopt a coach approach.
  • Leaders with at least one direct report.
  • HR leaders and business partners.

We have an awesome community, and we're learning how to support it virtually.

As we adapt to a new normal, please be advised that our Communitech virtual sessions will be recorded for a) use by the Communitech Academy team to review virtual delivery procedures in support of our commitment to provide an outstanding program experience, and b) for limited-time review by program participants when extenuating circumstances prevent a participant from attending a session. Virtual recordings of instructor-led sessions are not a substitute for attending the session. By attending this program, you consent to be recorded.

Communitech Academy is pleased to facilitate many of its programs virtually, now and after social distancing regulations are lifted.
