Leadership Coaching: Supportive and Directive Approaches Workshop
Coaching associates to help them achieve their goals and adhere to company directives are primary responsibilities of a manager, and some of the most challenging. To coach to specific behaviors or actions, managers will use either supportive or directive techniques. By evaluating their team members’ individual strengths and opportunities, a strong leader will know which technique to use and when.
In this workshop, you analyze the difference between supportive and directive coaching. You explore supportive coaching to help encourage associates to adapt to alternate ideas or processes, and directive coaching to modify behavior. How to anticipate and address different responses to coaching is covered to ensure coaching sessions are constructive and respectful.
Coaching is a major responsibility of every manager, and for many people it can be a challenge. Managers need to be able to maintain performance standards, be certain people are following policies and procedures and hit individual and team targets. And we have to do all of this through other people.
You will be able to evaluate and prepare for how different people will respond to coaching. You will apply directive coaching to modify behavior and apply supportive coaching to persuade associates to consider other options.
