Talent Coaching: 2022 Learning Series

Presented by Progress Coaching

The pandemic has had a profound impact on all of us, and the shift from in-person to remote environments has blurred the lines between our work and personal lives, creating challenges for leaders and employees alike. According to The Harris Poll, more than three quarters (76%) of employed Americans report they are currently experiencing worker burnout, and organizations are facing the challenge of adapting their existing learning and development programs to the new virtual environment.

So how do we go from simply surviving to THRIVING? What can organizations do to nurture a positive workplace culture where employees are thriving? What can leaders do to leverage the conversations they are having to develop, motivate, and inspire their people? And what role do employees play in all of this?

Join us for three exclusive events in December 2021, January 2022, and June 2022, where we'll be bringing talent development leaders from across the country together for a week-long summit of learning!

Innovative Leadership Mindset and Behaviors Proven for Leading During Disruption

Show more

Presentation Overview

With global issues such as Covid, and national concerns such as social unrest and government instability, with elections and technology disruptors such as machine learning impacting our businesses, we face significant challenges and opportunities to move our organizations, industries, and communities forward. Leadership must change in response to these changes. Each of us is invited into a new world requiring new skills and new ways of being. In leadership roles, we must respond to this invitation quickly. Our near-term success, as well as long-term success, is counting on it.

We are seeing significant cases of previously successful leaders and organizations faltering. Organizations are at risk of not meeting the essential missions they intend to serve. Faltering organizations can mean an interruption in the supply chain for crucial products, loss of livelihood, disruptions in children’s education, disruptions in medical treatment, etc. Leaders and leadership are pivotal in helping us navigate our challenging times. The best leaders will help us define a future that can improve our current reality and help us navigate the challenges to accomplish that future.

 

Learning Objectives

During this session, you will learn about Innovative Leadership, the type of leadership required to thrive during a disruption. Participants will leave the session with a clear understanding of the concepts of Innovative Leadership mindsets and behaviors, and recommendations to develop these mindsets and actions.

Conflict is a necessary part of innovation, agility, and collaboration. Associated with a negative connotation as something to be avoided, at its core, conflict is about the passionate collaboration toward the best possible outcome.

Learning Objectives

How our unmet needs for safety, security, and belonging can trigger feelings that drive unproductive conflict or peace-faking behaviors.

Identify core needs, emotional triggers, and the behaviors that challenge our ability to work towards the best possible results.

How to Create an Executive Development Program For Your Organization

Show more

Presentation Overview

By the time your high potential talent is approaching senior level leadership positions, they have been through a considerable amount of formal schooling and supplemental training. When you invest in your future executives and send them to a development program, do they return saying it was “life changing”? Are they are moved to tears because their experience was so powerful? If you answered no, you are not alone.

It is more common to hear little if anything about what someone learned and how they will use it to benefit your business. When this happens, it puts your future development dollars at risk and can hurt the performance of your organization in the long run. 

Join me as I share the secrets to creating and delivering an experience for high potential leaders that is so powerful it creates lasting behavior change and achieves benefits that far eclipses your investment!

With global issues such as Covid, and national concerns such as social unrest and government instability, with elections and technology disruptors such as machine learning impacting our businesses, we face significant challenges and opportunities to move our organizations, industries, and communities forward. Leadership must change in response to these changes. Each of us is invited into a new world requiring new skills and new ways of being. In leadership roles, we must respond to this invitation quickly. Our near-term success, as well as long-term success, is counting on it.

We are seeing significant cases of previously successful leaders and organizations faltering. Organizations are at risk of not meeting the essential missions they intend to serve. Faltering organizations can mean an interruption in the supply chain for crucial products, loss of livelihood, disruptions in children’s education, disruptions in medical treatment, etc. Leaders and leadership are pivotal in helping us navigate our challenging times. The best leaders will help us define a future that can improve our current reality and help us navigate the challenges to accomplish that future.

 

Learning Objectives

During this session, you will learn about Innovative Leadership, the type of leadership required to thrive during a disruption. Participants will leave the session with a clear understanding of the concepts of Innovative Leadership mindsets and behaviors, and recommendations to develop these mindsets and actions.

Using Conscious Communication to Turn Toxic Conflict into Collaborative Gold

Conflict is a necessary part of innovation, agility, and collaboration. Associated with a negative connotation as something to be avoided, at its core, conflict is about the passionate collaboration toward the best possible outcome.

Learning Objectives

How our unmet needs for safety, security, and belonging can trigger feelings that drive unproductive conflict or peace-faking behaviors.

Identify core needs, emotional triggers, and the behaviors that challenge our ability to work towards the best possible results.

Winning Difficult Conversations: Skills to Give You Confidence and Competence

Show more

Presentation Overview

Most days we find ourselves navigating challenging conversations in both our professional and personal lives. You may be interacting with an employee who is performing below expectations, avoiding that tough talk with a peer, or dealing with a variety of other topics.

Sometimes the conversation seems to “go just fine” but we don’t see any real change that comes out of it. This workshop will provide an interactive learning experience with a practical five-step model and time to apply it, so that you can raise your competence and confidence when engaging others in difficult conversations and enhance the quality of your relationships!

How to Create an Executive Development Program For Your Organization

Show more

Presentation Overview

By the time your high potential talent is approaching senior level leadership positions, they have been through a considerable amount of formal schooling and supplemental training. When you invest in your future executives and send them to a development program, do they return saying it was “life changing”? Are they are moved to tears because their experience was so powerful? If you answered no, you are not alone.

It is more common to hear little if anything about what someone learned and how they will use it to benefit your business. When this happens, it puts your future development dollars at risk and can hurt the performance of your organization in the long run. 

Join me as I share the secrets to creating and delivering an experience for high potential leaders that is so powerful it creates lasting behavior change and achieves benefits that far eclipses your investment! 

 

Learning Objectives

During this presentation you will learn: 

  • The business case for creating an executive education program.
  • Key decision points in the design phase.
  • Aligning program content to meet the needs of your organization.
  • When to bring in external partners.
  • Important program delivery considerations.
  • How to achieve a true return on investment (ROI).
