Coaching Skills

"I do a lot to motivate the team to meet our department’s quarterly targets, but is that really job-focused coaching?"

Managers are responsible for so much these days – hiring staff, meeting budget targets, and achieving department goals. It would be easy to simply ignore individual job task coaching. Shouldn’t managers spend their time driving team performance and not developing individual performers?


Managers and team leaders will be able to:

Understand what coaching is, why it is important, and how it supports individual and company goals.

Prepare for a coaching session by using observation and analysis to build a plan for a successful dialogue.

Hold a coaching conversation that improves an individual’s performance and increases productivity.

Use coaching as a way to build a valuable sense of teamwork between the team leader and team member through communication, shared goals, and collaboration.

For over 20 years, Lifetime Learning has used the Leadership Essentials program to help equip managers with the skills they need to succeed. Our experience is that a manager’s coaching skills have a direct impact on business results. Managers who care enough to both help and train their team members elicit cooperation, win team member confidence, create more successful business units, and ultimately impact an entire organization’s success.

Coaching Job Skills provides the tools necessary to successfully coach individuals to perform a job, a task, or a skill. In order to achieve results, coaching must go beyond just showing how to do something. Coaching involves observing, analyzing, demonstrating, and giving feedback. It’s a process of developing relationships with team members - relationships that ultimately can build the trust and respect that are the foundation of successful organizations.

Program Description

Coaching Job Skills helps managers learn how to effectively coach individuals through a process of observation, analysis, and communication. By carefully planning one-on-one discussions, managers can have the greatest impact and gain individual commitment to achieving results. Throughout the workshop, managers will review video presentations and case studies, participate in group discussions, practice new skills and receive immediate feedback.
