Orem, Utah (PRWEB) December 3, 2009
In modern business, it is a given that the best managers are effective “leaders” in every aspect of the word. They expect peak performance from their people, and they don’t leave their people to fend for themselves; they help them achieve results by coaching them to success. But, while this concept is gaining increasing acceptance in the business world, there is a great inconsistency in the quality and effectiveness of these leaders as coaches.
“Until recently, most coaching has happened somewhat informally. Before that, some organizations offered more formal coaching to those leaders who needed ‘fixing.’ … As the practice of coaching continues to grow, more and more organizations are attempting to measure the benefits of coaching and calibrate their return on investment. This leads to a heightened interest in improving the process and making results more predictable,” commented Zenger.
Join us on Dec. 9 for the complimentary webinar, “Bringing Science to the Art of Coaching.” Zenger will base his presentation on research gathered from more than 200,000 leaders across thousands of industries. The webinar is designed to help organizations understand how coaching can increase revenue, build employee engagement and retain top talent.
Additionally, Zenger will share useful tips on how to make a coaching session more effective, as well as how much change organizations can expect from a coaching session.
The webinar will address the following questions:
1. To what degree does coaching really pay off? Is this just one more in a long line of management fads?
2. How can we increase the effectiveness of each coaching session?
3. How can the process of coaching be made more consistent?
4. What is the appropriate goal for coaching, and how much change can we expect?
5. What is it about the coach’s personality or behavior that makes the most positive impact?
Join us at 1 p.m. EST on Dec. 9 for our exclusive webinar. Click here to register today for Zenger’s “Bringing Science to the Art of Coaching” and learn coaching tips that can strengthen your employee commitment and engagement.
