According to Integral, and in our experience of working with key organisations worldwide, there is a sense that the traditional “command and control” style of management is no longer effective. Today’s environment requires rapid response, leveraged creativity, resilience, and individual effort and performance in order to remain competitive. 

Retention is critical, and coaching supports employee career/professional development and satisfaction, which keeps valued staff  and reduces churn. 

Employees who are coached rather than managed to performance are more committed to and invested in the outcomes of their work and achievement of organizational goals. 

Coaching also has a significant impact on culture. As Barbara Greene of Career Partners International says, “Aligned business strategy, optimal people performance, and knowledge management all come together in a coaching culture and result in better communication, conflict resolution, trust and engagement”. 

During this practical webinar, you will learn four key strategies to help you develop and implement Coaching and Mentoring with your teams and within your organisation. You will also understand how to apply a coaching technique to your own personal/professional development to accelerate performance and self-awareness, and the value and benefits of doing so.  

Who should attend?

Engineering Managers and Leaders who understand that the shifting global landscape calls for a different, levelled-up approach in order to get the best from themselves and their teams.

Also welcome are aspiring managers and those leading without formal authority who want to develop their management and communication skills so that both they and their teams can maximise their effectiveness and productivity.

Lastly, engineers who are currently coaching and mentoring will gain valuable insights and practical tips to apply to their own development.
