"Daphne, all I know about leadership I learned from the Boy Scouts.
I am not equipped for this job!"

It was this statement that compelled me to ensure that front-line leaders and mid-level managers had the necessary tools to be highly effective managers and ultimately organizational leaders.

We continue on this mission with our newest program, Leadership Development Labs, which are designed to create a space to learn, practice, and transfer management behaviors into effective leadership practices for Human Resources Practitioners, Front- Line Leaders, and Mid-level Managers.  Our Labs are delivered virtually.

Methodology: We couple context, capabilities, and coaching to create and develop transferable and actionable leadership competencies with the precision of management skills to create highly effective leaders. 

Participants in the Virtual Labs will experience the following:

  • Enhanced leadership capabilities focused on core leadership competencies
  • Learn practical leadership applications
  • Increased understanding and development of their unique leadership styles

 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.
