Coaching for Peak Performance
Nothing is more important to becoming a more effective manager than the ability to be a successful COACH. The training/development process in “Coaching for Peak Performance” has proven over and over again to be valuable in helping one become more skilled at coaching. Each participant leaves the workshop with three Workshop Outcomes:
- A specific, accurate assessment of their Coaching Skills. In addition to assessing their coaching skills, the Job Relations Inventory (distributed in advance to each direct report) provides an in-depth motivational analysis of their direct reports.
- Practical strategies for better employee retention and increased employee motivation. The take away here is a personalized coaching game plan for each workshop participant.
- Hands-on skill development and real world practice sessions that go far beyond the normal training process for contributing to each participant’s being a better coach. Includes three private video recorded skill development practices – with self discovery by each participant of what they can do better and quality feedback from a small group of others in the workshop.
Video Recorded Practice And Feedback
This two-day workshop gives participants several opportunities to practice developing their coaching and feedback skills. Acclaimed worldwide as the premier coaching process and workshop, over 160,000 people have been trained in coaching and management skills using a video recorded process that many say is the “real thing.”
- The Manager/Leader as a Coach
- Results of the Participant’s Personal Coaching Assessment (JRI) Including Complete Motivational Profile of Employees
- Developing the Participant’s Personal Coaching Game Plan
- The Coach as Motivator
- Coaching through Improved Communication and Participation
- Coaching by Providing Clear Direction
- Goal Clarity and Objective Setting
- Coaching through Positive Expectations and Recognition
- Coaching through Developmental Feedback
- Performance Improvement
This day is almost entirely dedicated to “Learning through Doing,” with each participant practicing two different coaching skills. The two coaching skills the participant chooses to practice are identified through the summary report (Coaching Playbook) and determined by the JRI assessment on what is identified as improvement needs. Special focus is given to what the employees’ motivation profiles revealed they needed from their manager in order to be even more motivated. Each person uses his/her own real world situations for the practice sessions. These sessions include private video recorded sessions with small group playback and analysis. The trainer-to-participant ratio in the skill practice groups is 1 to 5.
“ I attended the Hayes Group Coaching for Peak Performance in February. The instructors, content, class size, and classmates made it, by far, the best such training I have had in more than 14 years in management. Mike Comer and Marge Hayes provided an enjoyable and comfortable atmosphere in which to coach us on how to handle not so enjoyable or comfortable situations in our work places. The small class size and our individual work groups allowed each of us to share our observations with one another in a very relaxed and collaborative way. As I watched myself on video handle various leadership situations on TV with Mike’s role-play deserving of an Emmy, it was very clear what my strengths and areas for improvement were. I finally saw myself as others do. I still replay my CD from time to time as a reminder. I left the class with an increased self-awareness, fully energized, and anxious to apply what I had learned with the confidence and skills to be a much better leader and coach.”
