Coach More, Manage Less    
CLICK HERE TO REGISTER
The best leaders not only coach more and manage less but co-create a coaching culture with their staff and board that genuinely shares leadership.  We have all been managed - “told” what to do, how to do it and criticized for not doing it the “right way”.  This workshop will focus on creating a coaching framework that emphasizes listening to the great ideas of colleagues, challenging staff to learn, asking powerful questions, and serving as a sounding board.  A coaching culture not only results in higher staff satisfaction and retention but better outcomes.
