A Coaching Culture’s Foundation Is Better Conversations
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.
