Workshops

The ACS Leadership Institute will offer Coaching and Feedback  CANCELED

Sunday, October 23, 2016

1:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Most managers will tell you that coaching is important, and yet they avoid actually coaching anyone. Some who try find it harder than expected. The reason? Most managers lack the skills and confidence to be effective in the coaching role. Yet, good coaching is central to your success as a leader, and the success of your team members, employees and volunteers on ACS committees. Coaching will help you increase performance, expand your team's capabilities, and improve relationships and morale. This course provides leaders with a proven process, practical tools, and a hands‐on opportunity to coach volunteers and employees more effectively.
