Course Description: 

Executive coaching is now recognized by a large number of Fortune 500 companies as the preferred method for leadership training and organizational culture development. More importantly, coaching has enabled leaders to establish strong cultures that have a very high level of team commitment with a significant reduction in staff turnover; all of which serve to increase profitability.

A new and trending concept in the coaching industry is one of a "Coaching Culture" in which the leader acquires skills that make him/her more coach-like. With this set of basic skills, leaders are able to coach their staff in ways that lead to enhanced motivation, proficiency, and accountability. Coaching in this manner is accomplished quickly and in normal daily conversation, yet, it has been found to be very effective in achieving desired results.

At the conclusion, participants should be able to:

  • Perform basic coaching skills within their own clinical practice.
  • Describe the advantages of establishing a coaching culture in their practice.
  • List the four pillars that support personal and organizational change.
