Workplace Coaching: Turning Talent Into Strength

When we think of the leaders who inspire us most, we often describe them as mentors. Coaching gives them this status. A mentor is just someone who has taken a personal interest in us; someone who is willing to pass on what he or she has learned. This is what make workplace coaching such an essential and powerful leadership practice.

People, and the way they perform, lift or limit leaders, success rests on their skills and motivations. Leaders who are not coaching are missing one of their most powerful team building opportunities. During this half-day workshop, participants discover how coaching turns talent into strength as it builds relationships.

"The Heart & Hands Leadership workshops are the most practical, readily applicable and inspiring pieces of leadership training I've ever had the privilege of attending. To put this in context, I started leadership training 45 years ago at a military academy, put it into practice first in the Vietnam war zone, and then for the next 40 years I've applied what I've learned in the business & local government realms. Looking back, I wish I had Dan as my instructor in that first leadership course."
