Course Description

Most leaders fundamentally misunderstand what coaching is.

The most important thing to understand about coaching is that it isn’t about giving advice or telling someone what to do. It’s about helping the person being coached to find their own answers and solutions.

When employees feel supported in their work and are given the opportunity to grow and develop, they are more likely to be satisfied and engaged in their work. This can lead to increased productivity, creativity, and innovation. 

Workplace coaching can help to reduce stress and improve communication among employees. Employers who invest in workplace coaching can create a positive and productive work environment that leads to happier and more engaged employees.

There are very few businesses that work with a one-size-fits-all approach. Most businesses are individualized to the needs of the many people they serve. What works well with one person may not work as well with another.

Disengaged employees can have a negative impact on a company. Re-engaging employees who have become disengaged can be difficult. With the skills you’ll learn in this course, you’ll have new tools to reach out to disengaged employees.

Coaching is an excellent way to help employees identify new solutions, remediate negative behaviors, and increase organizational effectiveness. And it’s all the rage right now. 

But what does organizational coaching look like in practice?

This course explores the skills necessary for volunteer coaches to gain the confidence to benefit younger leaders with a mix of coaching skills: diagnostic listening, strategic questioning, gap planning, wisdom sharing, and giving productive feedback. This foundational training serves as a basis for effective leadership.

Highlights the objectives to true leadership versus just being in charge!

by Jesus Brito July 28, 2022

Learned a couple of great practical insights directly applicable to my organization, e.g. understanding the difference between mentoring, life coaching, counseling, therapy and coaching applicable to our organizational goals essential for me to provide an employee with an appropriate referral in instances that an employee requires expertise outside of my knowledge, skills or abilities in order to become a high performing member of the organization wherever that may be. The approximately 38 minute modules make for better grasping and testing ones comprehension in the quizzes built into the computer based training while still affording a live streamed kick-off and close out sessions to share thoughts, perspectives and major takeaways.

The Coaching Skills for Leaders course is a very good and informative series of sessions which help to show what is involved with coaching and the different aspects of it to include about Active Listening and Asking Questions to help bring out the best in people and overcome obstacles being faced. The need to share insights, encourage your employees and clarify the next steps in their process is so useful in several aspects of good leadership. Dr. Arrington pointed out about how to develop your own style of coaching using several different methods out there and most importantly to be patient as this will not happen overnight.

I highly recommend that supervisors take this course! Supervisors and managers should be actively coaching their employees and/or teams to ensure that they have high performing teams that are motivated and happy and completing tasks in a timely manner. Otherwise, employees may be under performing or unhappy and could be forced to leave or choose to leave for another job, which could leave the team short handed. I think that using the weekly group meetings or 1 on 1 meetings as formal coaching sessions is a great idea to bring underperforming employees up to speed and encourage high performing employees to keep up the good work. And supervisors should practice active listening during these meetings and not do all of the talking and then wait until the end to ask if there are any questions. So thank you, the course was very informative!

Coaching Skills for Leaders was an exceptional course. This course was relatable on a personal and professional level, I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to improve their leadership skills.

by Karin (Jo) Sholtis May 2, 2022

I really appreciated the deal world examples of all the different situations that might be encountered when coaching. I find it difficult to engage with someone who is uninterested or unwilling to initially participate. The practical techniques of how to engage someone despite those circumstances were very relevant and feasible. Also, I love the term “mlrale vampire”.

David Arrington is a very insightful and professional Leadership Coach. His Leadership methodologies can be easily be applied to a manager’s daily workforce operations in order to augment their teams performance and production. Additionally, his Leadership techniques and logical processes are complementary to the skills that many managers already have acquired. I highly recommend taking one of his courses.
