How does one hold people accountable for results while still motivating them to give their best? The consistent answer is that by far the largest factor is the behaviour of the manager and more specifically, coaching behaviours.

Engaged employees frequently report that they understand what is expected of them, are empowered to make decisions as their skills improve, and receive feedback when they have done a good job and when they have not. Just as importantly, when they face barriers on the job, the manager makes an honest attempt to understand and problem solve in a constructive way.

This program provides the core management skills that maximize employee performance and engagement. It makes extensive use of skills practice using actual participant case studies in order to ensure relevance and prepare participants for critical conversations back on the job.
