What's Next

Leaders as Coaches

Join ASTD of Southwest Florida on Wednesday,
April 16th at Keiser University from 11:30am-1:00pm for a unique learning event.

Leaders at all levels are under pressure these days to meet aggressive organizational goals and objectives. 

Many recent studies point to recruiting, training, and developing human capital as the core of an organization’s success. Coaching is now a priority for leaders at all levels within an organization, thus enabling their employees to achieve organizational goals. 

In our discussion with members of the Southwest Florida Chapter of ASTD, we will explore coaching techniques that employ conversations such as:

  • Ask, Don’t Tell
  • Truth Talk
  • In the Moment Feedback
  • Reframing the Picture

Attendees are encouraged to share “stories” of how they have applied some of these conversations within their organization.

Join Us, Won't You?
