CMOE’s Coaching TIPS²™

Course Description

An organization’s ability to successfully grow and compete over the long term hinges on leaders having the ability to coach others for improved performance and engage the people they lead in driving results. Leaders who engage their team members through coaching are able to build commitment to the organization’s goal, invite team members to participate as partners in the business, help maintain competitive advantage, and transform the organization in a way that is truly sustainable over the long term.

CMOE’s Coaching TIPS²™ Workshop is designed to help participants develop the fundamental skills needed to coach others in a way that will drive organizational results. The workshop is based on The Coaching TIPS²™ Model, a practical process that leaders can apply to all coaching situations, including improving team member performance, supporting growth and development, and increasing engagement. The Coaching TIPS²™ Model is an easy-to-understand-and-apply communication road map for leaders at all levels that is backed by extensive and ongoing research.
