SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Highly effective coaches have the potential to significantly increase the productivity and effectiveness of those they coach. Zenger Folkman’s updated version of The Extraordinary Coach Workshop will help participants gain the critical coaching skills and tools they need to maximize their leadership effectiveness and coach others to perform at their peak. The outcome is more motivated, committed and engaged employees.
Zenger Folkman is dedicated to ongoing research and regularly updates their programs based on the latest data. This new version of The Extraordinary Coach includes new world-class video segments that follow a story through an organization. These videos present participants with both receiver initiated and coach initiated examples, as well as examples of Laissez-faire verses and Autocratic coaching styles.
“We understand that many people today are visual learners,” said Jack Zenger, CEO of Zenger Folkman. “Reading and talking about coaching skills is helpful; however, being able to see and analyze different situations on screen is much more impactful.”
Along with a newly modernized look and feel, participants have an improved development plan that focuses on both coaching skills and coaching conversations. The workshop covers not only how to improve individual coaching skills, but how to build a coaching culture within an organization.
“We know that one of the most important parts of this workshop is the time participants have to practice,” said Joe Folkman, president of Zenger Folkman. “The new version includes fun and engaging activities with time to practice and receive feedback from our world-class coaches. We believe that by providing leaders with new skills and frameworks for growing and developing others, leaders can expect profound improvement and results in their organization.”
The Extraordinary Coach Workshop will be available for organizations on March 6, 2015. The first public debut of this new offering will be in Chicago, IL on April 7. To register for this or other upcoming public events, go to www.zengerfolkman.com/events.
