Online Workshop

Fundamentals of Transformative Mentoring and Coaching

About this Online Workshop

This program will enable leaders to develop the interpersonal and transformative skills needed to successfully leverage the talents of staff. In addition, leaders will gain greater insights into what actions they can take to position their organization as an attractive employer, empower and motivate their teams, promote a learning culture, and build effective relationships with their employees.

The primary way that leaders effect transformation is through the people they manage. Transformative coaching and mentoring are two important proactive tools leaders can deploy to achieve organizational goals and personal growth. Coaching is an interactive process through which managers and employees work together to develop employee capabilities or solve performance problems. Mentoring is a deliberate and voluntary relationship where a trusted counsellor or guide passes on knowledge and experience that enable the person being mentored to use his/her traits and skills effectively.

Both coaching and mentoring therefore balance employee and corporate goals that encourage employees to take ownership of their performance and development plans.

This program explores the various interactional modes, challenges and benefits that best promote corporate transformation and cultural re-design.

NOTE: This is an interactive, virtual training session, which is different from a webinar. Participants will be expected to participate through voice and video, and to engage with each other and the facilitator in large and small group discussions, to learn from each other and practice skill development.
