with Jeb Bates, Executive Coach from ThoughtAction, LLC

Who It’s For

Mid-to-upper-level managers who want to know how to creatively coach and manage their teams and get the most from their people.

Why this course?

Do you know what each of your employees’ core needs are and how to coach them in a way that drives performance and job satisfaction?

Leaders in organizations are always talking about employee engagement and how it relates to productivity, execution, and retention. However, most organizations miss the boat when it comes to engagement because they focus on the wrong things. It’s not about the Gallup results, benefits, nap pods, or free food. It’s about how well the employee’s core needs are met by their role, their organization, and their boss. If all three are not aligned, then dissatisfaction and disengagement are the result.

Learning Outcomes

  • Expand emotional intelligence to understand personal drivers of satisfaction and the core needs of your employees
  • Grow your capability to coach employees for improved performance and greater job satisfaction
  • Learn a method of creatively working with employees to engage them as they deliver results in their roles
  • Develop a deeper understanding of your own motivating needs and how to make the most of them in your leadership
