Gaining Successful Mentorship Tools

A 2-Day Short Course

This course focuses on the keys to achieving positive measurable, long-term change in behavior for yourself, your people, and your team. Learn the mindsets and characteristics of successful people and how these characteristics can sometimes become impediments to greater success.

In this experiential workshop, you practice the skills of a behavioral coach, including goal setting, action planning, story telling, rehearsal, after action assessment, and reinforcement. Finally, an 8-step process encouraging development, which was created by Marshall Goldsmith, noted by such publications as Forbes and the Wall Street Journal as among the top executive coaches, is taught as the methodology to the development of oneself and others.

Learn how to create an environment where people can effectively improve their behavior and increase your organization’s overall productivity.
