Dear Leader,

Have you been thinking about optimizing your management skills?

Coaching techniques provide a specific way of communicating that can support you in working better with your team and being more productive in your job.

In our experience as executive coaches, managers who utilize coaching skills report higher productivity and retention among their direct reports.

You know you are ready to become trained in coaching techniques for managers and leaders if you are a:

  • manager who wants to lead a team or company to be more productive and profitable
  • successful professional who wants to mentor others in an inspiring way
  • business leader who wants to inspire others
  • sales person who wants to improve your rapport and questioning skills

Because you are a successful professional, it is highly probable that you are already using coaching skills.  It is just a matter of incorporating them into a specific methodology.

Think about a master carpenter.  He has a set of tools that he uses.  Some of these tools are the very same tools that anyone would have in his garage.  And some are more advanced.  All of them together create furniture masterpieces in the hands of a master carpenter.

In your training, you’ll learn to become a master leader. You already have some of these tools, such as the ability to listen, ask questions, and praise others. You’ll learn how to use these tools with more mastery, And you’ll also receive more advanced tools to enhance your ability to manage and communicate even more effectively.

I understand what you need to make this happen. You want to be able to learn these skills quickly and easily, and begin to implement coaching in your business life.  You need a program that you can take in a couple of days; and one that does not take a year or two to complete.  You already have much of what it takes to become skilled at using coaching techniques; you simply want to learn how to put this all together.

I never cease to be amazed at the power of the coaching process to draw out the skills or talent that was previously hidden within an individual, and which invariably finds a way to solve a problem previously thought unsolvable.
– John Russell, Managing Director, Harley-Davidson Europe Ltd.

In research conducted over the past three years we’ve found that leaders who have the best coaching skills have better business results.
– VP of Global Executive & Organizational Development at IBM

Many of the world’s most admired corporations, from GE to Goldman Sachs, invest in coaching. Annual spending on coaching in the US is estimated at roughly $1 Billion Dollars.

Introducing the Leverage for Leaders Management Coach Training Program

The L4L Management Coach Training Program is designed to take the skills you already have, and integrate them using a specific methodology, to support you in being able to elicit the most creative ideas from others. Whether you are working with your team, or your clients, you will know what to do to empower others to bring their best self to the table.

As a leader, you will enhance the abilities of your people to take initiative, work together more smoothly and increase their productivity. You will inspire others to bring their best selves to their work. If you use your coach training in your business, you will be able to support your clients to increase their impact, effectiveness and profits.

For the sales person (and doesn’t everyone need sales skills?), you will learn a new way of questioning and listening that goes way beyond simply establishing rapport. You will learn to connect with others at a level of understanding that you have not previously experienced.

One of the most valuable investments in myself ever

I took the Leverage for Leaders training because I wanted to add coaching skills to the “toolbox” of techniques that I use every day as a lawyer, arbitrator, mediator and advisor.

It wasn’t until after I had completed the course and began working with my first coaching clients that I fully realized how fundamentally different coaching is from any of these other disciplines. Yet at the same time, coaching techniques and practices have made every aspect of my professional and personal life easier and more joyful.

I work with dozens of individuals and organizations daily and whether they are my law firm clients, fellow non-profit board members or just personal friends, I use my coaching skills and coaching principles to develop and nurture positive relationships that help others reach their goals while I reach mine.

This training has been one of the most valuable investments in myself that I have ever made.

– Sandy Froman, J.D., Tucson, Arizona

Changed every relationship in my life for the better

I took this course because I was told that it would change every relationship in my life for the better.  It did that!  A highlight of the event is that it changed my relationship with myself, and also the relationship with my sons.

I found that the course allowed everyone the ability to be honest and commit to their own growth and learning. It was very refreshing and expanding for my mind.

While I highly recommend this course for personal development, I have also been able to begin a private coaching business because of it.  Even though I have been a successful businessman my whole life, I am now able to do a better job of listening and mentoring.

Thank you to Karen and all of the rest of the class members for an extraordinary experience!
