Welcome. The Purposeful Conversations© Training Program draws from the most advanced knowledge base in the coaching field and is translated into a simple, intuitive, and highly transferable framework for busy executives, managers, and influencers.

The ability to influence others, the management of people, the development of talent, the finesse to provide effective feedback, and, the ability to provide inspiring leadership is not an exact science. It is messy. No one solution when found works for everyone. Each Manager – Employee or Influencer – Colleague combination brings a whole new set of challenges that cannot be expressed in an email, a chart, or spreadsheet. It MUST occur through conversation – A Purposeful Conversation.

The enhancement of the skills, the experience, and the practice to have these conversations is what we cover in this program. We want to go beyond “teaching managers to coach”. We want to be much more practical. We want to provide an experience where leaders, managers and influencers build on their own management and coaching styles to communicate and connect in a more powerful way. Notice we did not just say communicate and connect with employees. Although they will be the key focus. This is about enhancing the skills to communicate with customers, other leaders, potential customers, and all the situations that will be needed to deliver on the Strategic Performance Outcomes of the organization. They all require powerful and purposeful conversations to work in concert with solid technical attributes.

We wish you much success during your learning experience with us! If you have any questions about the course, please feel free to reach out to us at any time!
