Let’s reduce the too often “fire-fighting” method of risk management.

We’ll focus on the 10 empirical, simple rules of risk management.

Yet the challenge of creating and maintaining a high functioning team is getting progressively more difficult. We are tasked with different work styles, different cultures, and even different generations.

We’ll review myth of management verses secrets of leadership.

Tired of the command and control style of management?

So, stop managing and start coaching! Coaching is the ability to bring out the best in people.

It is the ability to work with a diverse set of team members to help them be creative, empowered and motivated. Coaching is not “command and control”, it is not acting as the benevolent dictator (haven’t we all worked for someone like that?).

Rather, it is the art of asking powerful questions and using powerful language so that the person being coached will come up with answers for him or herself.

The focus is on helping your team members to be resourceful and accountable while getting the job done. Join us for an engaging and interactive presentation.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Discover the difference between traditional management and coaching
  • Find out how and why coaching works
  • Learn how to develop powerful questions and how to hold people accountable
  • Building rapport, a key to developing strong relationships
  • Tips on how to develop a group into a team
