From Boss to Coach
Driving employee engagement and accountability starts with learning how to coach employees, using a business coaching model. Once you learn how to coach and ask “Power Questions” it will change the way you lead forever. Coaching increases employee engagement, productivity, and self-problem solving, while reducing stress and conflict conversations. The old-school management approach no longer works. Today’s employees respond to a “partner and Influence” management style, and learning non-directive coaching techniques is the key. This highly interactive program is based on Deanne’s Coaching Clinic which was recognized by Training Magazine’s Top 100.
Once the workshop is over, Deanne offers several options for a followup to drive the message deep into the organization or specific team. Please call the office to discuss a unique program for your team or organization. Please call 708-836-0118 for more information.

I felt your management skills workshop was excellent; it was very well written per our conversation of expectations and very well presented. A perfect starting point to our management development. Many managers told me how much they liked the presentation and it definitely has them thinking of ways to improve their communication/management skills, me included. I hope we can have you come back again!
