Peter Senge and others have persuaded thousands of companies to become "learning organizations" — companies that constantly measure feedback and learn from that process.
To enhance corporate learning, many are now developing their own internal coaching and mentoring programs. Executives, managers, and frontline supervisors are being encouraged to lead through coaching and mentoring.
Good leaders, however — even great ones — are not necessarily great coaches. Most of them must master the art. They face a number of challenges in making that transition because of the kinds of experiences that have marked their careers:
This sounds like a tall order for people who still have a business to run or a division to manage. They need coaching on how to be a better coach themselves.
We provide this basic training in our course on Coaching and Mentoring Skills for Executives.
Dr. Mike Armour, who facilitates this training, is an ideal coach's coach. Not only has he coached almost 600 executives and entrepreneurs himself, he has also taught MBA courses on coaching and mentoring skills.
As a crisis counselor for many years, he truly knows "how people tick." In addition he is a credentialed trainer in business applications of neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), one of the most effective tools for internalizing new skills and capabilities.
Moreover, Mike excels at teaching people how to build effective rapport and to maintain the trust of those they coach. And equally important, he is an experienced specialist in ethics, with the insights to help coaches and mentors work through difficult ethical issues that often arise in their work.
If your company does not have an internal coaching or mentoring program, Mike Armour and his colleagues can help you establish one. Mike and his SLDI associates will help your organization
