About the Webinar

In today’s hybrid world of work, where teams and organizations are spread out physically and often geographically, conversations are truly the foundation of culture. Conversations are how managers build trust, resilience, psychological safety, engagement, inclusion, and agility. That’s why better conversations are the foundation of a coaching culture.

At CCL, our research has found that leaders who practice 4 core conversational skills — listening to understand, asking powerful questions, challenging and supporting, and establishing accountability — are rated as more effective by their superiors than those who don’t.

Watch this webinar for specific stories and practical examples of how these 4 behaviors can serve as a foundation for scaling an enterprise-wide change towards a more effective coaching culture.

What You’ll Learn

In this webinar, you’ll learn how to:

  • Break down silos and communication barriers by addressing issues with openness and respect
  • Develop a common language for cultivating and accelerating coaching skills at every level
  • Establish a framework for using coaching as an organization-wide culture change initiative
  • Foster a coaching culture through a foundation of better conversations
