The Houston office of Career Partners International is featuring a timely presentation: “Developing a Coaching Culture for Engagement & Retention” at the 2013 Gulf Coast Symposium on May 15 – 16, 2013.

With the maturing and diversified workforce globally, companies are confronted with workforce planning issues that impact their ability to execute on business strategy…among them addressing engagement and retention.

Human Resource professionals attending the Gulf Coast Symposium on Human Resource issues will hear about and see the latest resources and best practices for optimizing human resource management. The Houston office of Career Partners International, the world’s fastest growing talent management firm, is presenting and exhibiting at the annual HR Houston Symposium on May 15 - 16, 2013 at Reliant Center. Sheryl Dawson, President, and Merilyn Fance, Senior Consultant, of Career Partners International - Houston are presenting “Developing a Coaching Culture for Engagement & Retention.”

Dawson shared, “With the maturing and diversified workforce affecting organizations across industries globally, companies are confronted with a host of workforce planning issues that directly impact their ability to execute on business strategy. Among the most immediate concerns are how to address the challenges of engagement and retention of all generations and backgrounds globally.”

“Our clients who have implemented programs for developing a coaching culture and enabling leaders to be effective coaches have experienced significant positive bottom line impact,” Dawson continued. “For example, our Manager As Coach Learning Series has enabled one client to achieve a 71% increase in alignment of goals to strategic plan, improve engagement of employees by 23% and 30% for managers, and help 92% of employees gain new skills.”

Fance commented, “Corporations who want to keep their competitive edge need to address performance issues with a new mind set. Rather than directing, advising and teaching or training employees, leaders who gain and utilize true coaching skills are able to dramatically increase their impact on performance. This mind shift empowers employees to think and behave in new ways that also increases their engagement and retention. When a coaching mindset is adapted from the top of the organization to all levels of leadership, the impact on the culture and performance is significant.”

The presentation, “Developing a Coaching Culture for Engagement & Retention,” provides the rationale for developing a coaching culture, validation of the ROI, a process for culture change, successful coaching models, and resources for implementation. Highlighted case studies and research on coaching cultures demonstrate its effectiveness for positively impacting three key leadership development agendas for successful organizations: 1) A focus on utilizing, engaging, and developing employee skills; 2) The importance of emphasizing and rewarding trustworthy leaders; 3) The value of effective and transparent communication to increase trust, job satisfaction and retention.

Dawson concluded, “HR professionals who want to be on the forefront of strategic performance management, learn about effective solutions and tools, and be able to justify their ROI, will benefit from this timely presentation.”

Career Partners International – Houston will feature best-in-class talent management services and products in the exhibition center at the symposium.
