Once the context is set for a deep dive into leadership effectiveness, the four specific leadership necessities are explored:

Two Leadership Conversations every Manager must have
Developmental Coaching – helping your team members grow into future improvement. Performance Coaching – helping your team members move out of past poor performance. Both of these conversations go to the core of what turns a manager into a leader.
In this half-day workshop, Dr. Neillie first introduces the FAAST Developmental Coaching Model to equip managers with a simple, repeatable approach to grow their team members. After practicing this FAAST conversation in an industry-specific case study, workshop participants will join Dr. Neillie in the second half of the workshop’s content, where they will be introduced to the Best Practices for Holding Hard Conversations.
The workshop will wrap up with an industry-specific hard-conversation case study, followed by personal commitments and action planning. Workshop participants will come away from this program with simple, specific steps they can take to improve their leadership conversations.
