WORKSHOPS AND COACHING
Capacity Building for Teams and Leaders
Our workplaces are really communities of people who want to use their skills and abilities to work together effectively.
Using models such as Emotional Intelligence (EQ-i 2.0 and EQ360), Gallup Strengths®, Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)®, and Intercultural Development (IDI)®, I will create a customized program to met the needs of your workplace.
How We Get There
The first step will be for Sidney to meet with key people to learn about your vision and your goals. The next step might be to engage a group to discuss what’s working well or what challenges you face. This may take the form of a focus group, needs assessment, or a collaborative group process like Appreciative Inquiry, ProAction Café, or an Open Space conversation.
It is also quite possible that you have already identified that your team will benefit from a workshop on:
Leading a Team 101
Managers as Coaches
Feedback that Inspires Growth and Trust
Understanding AND Managing Conflict
Communicating Clearly for Results
I will work closely with you to design and facilitate a custom workshop that will address your organization’s learning and development goals. At the end of the workshop, participants will have a clear direction on their next steps and a sense of renewed purpose in their work together.
COACHING FOR TEAMS AND LEADERS
A Trusted Partnership to Advance your Goals
Professional coaching helps people discover brand new ways to reach their professional goals. Coaching is focused on outcomes that you or your team designs and your coach helps you achieve. It is a partnership that inspires people to discover greater possibilities and opportunities. Sidney is an ICF Professional Coach (PCC), a Certified Mentor Coach, and is also certified in several coaching models, including NeuroLeadership Coaching, Presence-Based Coaching, Gallup Strengths®, Intercultural Development (IDI), and Team Coaching International.
Our first session may begin by exploring why you or your team are interested in coaching. You may already be clear on your starting place, like your own leadership development, team development, managing conflict, strategic direction, or improved communication.
In any of these situations, we may decide to begin with a team or leadership assessment and I will have some good ideas on which will work best for you.
