Dave Wilkins will present on the Coaching process in this presentation and how leaders can approach guiding their team members. Dave, a former CEO and certified executive coach, will cover:
• Objectives of coaching-- why would you coach versus train employees?
• The process - how a coach establishes trust and the next steps.
• Tips for a beneficial coaching process - do you want to utilize an outside or inside coach
• The role of assessments or other tools - how are these used properly and to benefit both the coach and coachee?
Possible outcomes and stories - some people leave their jobs after a single coaching session, while others become great leaders in their organizations. It all depends on the fit of the person and the willingness to work to improve.
