Course Detail: P_LEADCOACHCHANGE - Leading and Coaching Through Change: Navigating the New Work Setting - Online

Contact Hrs/CEUs: 15/1.5


To say that the way we work has changed seems like an understatement.  And, we still have a future of uncertainty in front of us.  Whether the transitions that you and your workforce have experienced occurred virtually overnight or are still ongoing, working and leading remotely is not a new idea.  Many organizations already had started to make this switch with the advent of flexible working arrangements, yet some businesses have made the change more effectively than others.  Even more virtual work appears to be in our future.


So, what is the difference between those managers who are leading through a somewhat seamless shift from those leaders still learning how to prepare themselves and their team members for success? The ability to help ourselves and others to adapt, bounce back, and stay focused on business objectives makes the difference. This opportunity focuses on managers reskilling and upskilling in three areas: Outcomes, others, and ourselves.


Through self-assessments, peer coaching / mentoring, action planning, and group discussions, this highly interactive experience brings business professionals together to collaboratively expand their expertise and organizational capacity to successfully face current business challenges and to be prepared for future change. Our team will gather for a series of practical learning sessions, each individually followed by a take-away assignment and peer coaching by fellow team members, creating an ongoing, local network of supportive business professionals. This shared learning experience includes the following areas:
