Building Partnerships in the Workplace
Sooner or later, people have to start doing something differently—they have to start communicating like a coach


An ever-changing global economy presents the leaders of today with countless opportunities to coach for performance and results. Effective coaches in the workforce can directly impact the current and future performance of their team members through enhanced growth and development, promoting individual responsibility, and encouraging accountability. CMOE’s Suite of Coaching Workshops are designed to help participants develop the necessary skills to effectively coach others. Our Suite of products and services allows us to work with clients to identify the optimal coaching solution for their unique needs. The workshops are trusted and used by over a million coaches around the globe and after 35 years, continue to be the gold-standard training programs for coaches in all types of industries, and at all levels within leading organizations. CMOE’s goal is to provide your organization with the latest and greatest participant materials, workshop experience, and sustainability tools in order to increase the coaching and performance of team members and leaders within your organization. All of our coaching workshops are based on proven models which are backed by extensive and ongoing research. These models are flexible and dynamic communication “road maps” that coaches use to interact more effectively and produce results in a coaching situation.

Coaching Defined
Coaching is the ongoing process of building partnerships aimed at continuous improvement. It is a two-way communication process between members of the organization, and is designed to develop and enhance hard and soft skills, motivation, attitude, judgment, and the ability to perform and contribute to an organization’s strategic objectives.

Participants develop a number of critical coaching competencies during our coaching workshops that are practical and immediately applicable on the job. • Maximize on-the-job performance by helping team members to make improvements and positive changes. • Motivate others to actively seek out opportunities to contribute more of themselves to the business. • Help others to develop the behaviors and competencies needed to achieve desired business results. • Help people accept, adjust to, and acquire ownership of organizational change. • Resolve differences, handle team-member resistance, and confront excuses. • Conduct developmental discussions and non-performance related coaching conversations with confidence. • Build positive and supportive relationships with team members.

• Utilizes The Coaching TIPS2 Model. This Model features 5 steps, or behaviors, that are common to all world-class coaches. • Typically delivered in a One-Day Workshop Format (see Learning Methods for other options). • Focuses on the fundamental skills and principles of coaching. • Recommended for leaders and managers at all levels of the business who are looking for a training and coaching process.

• Utilizes The Eight-Step Coaching Model. This Model features additional steps, or behaviors, over the Coaching TIPS2 Model that are common to all world-class coaches. • Typically delivered in a Two-Day Workshop Format (see Learning Methods for other options). • Recommended for participants with some experience with or training in coaching skills, or those who are very experienced but need to refresh their knowledge and improve upon their current ability to coach others.

The Continuous Improvement Coaching Workshop is directed toward organizations that are highly involved in the continuous-improvement process. Team Leaders, Coordinators, or Facilitators learn to interact with team members and other stakeholders in the team process. While team leaders in these organizations may not have formal authority or fill official leadership roles within the team structure, they must manage both the team’s activities, processes, and relationships with people in order to facilitate a successful, collaborative team effort.
