Master Basic Coaching Skills

Presented By:

Cheryl Jekiel


  • Are some of your leadership team members overwhelmed or stressed by their responsibilities related to people?
  • Are your supervisors in need of learning the basics of coaching their work teams?

We all know that telling people what to do and how to solve their problems doesn’t work.   Participants will practice daily coaching skills related to performance management using contemporary practices that yield a highly engaged workforce. The session includes techniques that can be applied to each participant’s environment using the takeaway tools from the session.  The coaching model presented reflects a positive approach to leading teams that delivers better results and reduces time spent managing performance problems.

Learning Objectives:

  • Solidify daily coaching habits that support key goals using approaches that foster trust and engagement.
  • Implement a coaching model for performance improvement that includes setting expectations, providing effective training and delivering different types of feedback.
  • Based on self-assessment, participants will leave with an effective action plan to build stronger leadership habits.
