"Daphne, all I know about leadership I learned from the Boy Scouts.

 Coaching Techniques for Team Performance

Aristotle is attributed to saying: "The whole is greater than the sum of its parts." In other words, when individual parts are connected together to form one entity, they are worth more than if the parts were in silos (adapted from astute solutions).

The Coaching Techniques for Team Performance Lab focuses on how to better coach employees to higher performance through connecting the importance of their role to that of the larger team. Coaching is a process of relationship building and setting goals. How well you coach is related directly to how well you are able to foster a great working relationship with your employees through understanding them and strategic goal setting:

  • The importance of coaching conversations
  • Connect individual performance to team performance
  • Identify collaboration drivers
  • Manage poor performers
  • Setting metrics that matter

Methodology: Our interactive lab will include the following: Lecture, Case Studies, Scenarios, Small-Group Breakout Sessions, and Pre- and Post-Lab Activities.

 Virtual Team Building and Management

Leadership is a skill and while some have a natural tendency towards leadership, the impetus may lie within the development of critical executive function skills. The advantage of learning your effective leadership style is that it enables you to understand your character strengths and develop your weaknesses.

This creates a paradigm shift in how we build and manage the remote workforce. Issues, such as totally remote vs a hybrid approach of on-site and remote workers, require an agile and equitable management solution.

The Virtual Team Building and Management Lab is designed to provide participants with the knowledge to:

  • Establish norms and expectations
  • Build trust
  • Define communication channels
  • Incorporating your strengths into your Leadership
  • Understanding the Executive Functioning Skills

Methodology: Our interactive lab will include the following: Lecture, Case Studies, Scenarios, Small-Group Breakout Sessions, and Pre- and Post-Lab Activities.
