The Coach Approach to Managing Your Team: A 21st Century Skill for Success

Friday, June 17, 2016


If your employees are disengaged and this is causing your organization to lose money, you’re not alone.

A recent Gallop poll found that “almost 90% of workers were either not engaged” with or “actively disengaged” from their jobs.

JLL, a real estate service firm, did a study entitled “Fully Engaged” and found that an employee who has no sense of purpose in the workplace, causes up to $500 billion in lost revenue in the U.S. each year.  Firms that embrace employee engagement…can be about 500% more profitable. 

This interactive, experiential workshop draws on the extensive experience of both presenters as coaches and business women in the corporate and non-profit sectors.  These leaders enabled their teams to achieve success for their respective organizations and themselves. They will share this expertise with you so that you can begin to alter the structure of work in your organization and attain better business results for you and your company by enabling your team members to connect to a deeper sense of purpose in their work.

Through discussion and exercises, you will learn:

  • How to ask your employees the right questions so that they become involved in the process and buy into the solution
  • Define clear expectations and objectives for each of your team members
  • Learn to listen to your team members closely and then provide useful feedback to them
  • Help your team to set meaningful goals and the steps to achieve them
