The benefits of coaching are undeniable. Yet individuals avoid coaching because they don’t think they have the time and because they fear they don’t have the answers. However, the truth is you don’t need lengthy, pre-scheduled sessions to coach effectively. And you don’t need to have all the answers. In fact, it’s better if you don’t! Neuroscience tells us that if employees have their own insights, they’ll change their behavior in a more sustainable way, than if the manager tells them the answer. By harnessing the power of positive psychology and identifying coachable moments everyday it is possible to completely change the coaching paradigm, and begin to create the coaching culture that most organizations want. Moving away from a rigid, model-based, sit-down discussion, in favor of a flexible, nimble, everyday approach creates an environment in which people feel good about themselves, the decisions they make, and their opportunities to be successful. And, it drives business results.
During this session, we will:
- Share research and our point of view on the benefits and obstacles to coaching
- Explore the trends that point to the need for a coaching culture
- Understand the connection between positive psychology and everyday coaching
- Explore how neuroscience, emotional intelligence and mindfulness come together to create – and leverage – coachable moments
