Coaching for Results:
How Leaders Turn Difficult Conversations into Breakthroughs
December 12, 2017 with Dr. Marcia Reynolds
Leaders routinely face the challenge of helping employees see things differently. Helping others see their blind spots, gaps in logic, and barriers to change means you have to challenge how they think. You can’t tell them to think differently and expect results. Rather, you have to listen in a specific way to know what questions to ask in order to break through their mental frames. If done properly, there is a moment in the conversation that changes everything. This powerful session will help leaders create breakthrough moments in their performance and development conversations, opening the minds of the people they work with.
