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


An organization’s ability to successfully grow and compete over the long term hinges on leaders having the ability to coach others for improved performance and engage the people they lead in driving results. Leaders who engage their team members through coaching are able to build commitment to the organization’s goal, invite team members to participate as partners in the business, help maintain competitive advantage, and transform the organization in a way that is truly sustainable over the long term. CMOE’s Coaching TIPS2 Workshop is designed to help participants develop the fundamental skills needed to coach others in a way that will drive organizational results. The workshop is based on The Coaching TIPS2 Model, a practical process that leaders can apply to all coaching situations, including improving team member performance, supporting growth and development, and increasing engagement. The Coaching TIPS2 Model is an easyto-understand-and-apply communication road map for leaders at all levels that is backed by extensive and ongoing research. During the workshop, participants carefully examine their current coaching skills and practices so they can understand how to improve and change for the better. Using customized in-class practice opportunities and the Coaching TIPS2 Model, participants learn how to coach to a variety of workplace situations and work on one of their own coaching situations so they can immediately apply the skills learned. The cutting-edge design of the Coaching TIPS2 Workshop gives participants the confidence to use and sustain the skills and principles.

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.

• Apply the Coaching TIPS2 Model and skills to initiate all types of coaching situations. • Coach average performers on opportunities for improvement, resulting in improved bottom-line results. • Coach high performers on growth and development opportunities, sparking creative thinking and acknowledging strengths. • Conduct other developmental and non-performance-related coaching sessions. • Coach in the moment, as well as during formal discussions. • Address performance problems with confidence and improve accountability for performance expectations. • Resolve differences, handle resistance, and minimize defensiveness. • Build a coaching culture with positive and supportive relationships. • Collaborate with and guide coaches in setting goals and creating action plans. • Develop talent by helping others achieve their full potential.
