Employee Engagement Employee Recognition

How to stop fixing and start coaching

November 8, 2023 at 11:00 AM PST/ 2.00 PM EST


Does your company solve problems for employees, or give them the skills to solve problems themselves? 

It’s an important distinction, and one that can be the difference between companies whose employees truly grow and develop, and those who either stay at the same level or look elsewhere for opportunities. 

In this webinar, Anita Hossain Choudhry, CEO & Co-founder of The Grand, will speak to our Head of People Noah Warder about how to make coaching a key part of your organizational culture.

The session will cover the following:

  • What is coaching?
  • Why it's a critical skill to improve an organization
  • The default mode of fixing
  • A better alternative: coaching
  • Two coaching frameworks
  • Fixing versus coaching
  • How to apply coaching right away

Participants will also take part in an interactive exercise designed to demonstrate Outcome Shift, one of the coaching frameworks outlined in the webinar.
