  • Becoming a Manager-Coach

    A growing number of organizations recognize the numerous benefits that arise from developing a genuine coaching culture within their companies. Acquiring coaching skills then becomes the norm for leaders and managers at every level, in order that they can exercise a positive influence upon their employees. Group coaching enables participants to learn from their own experiences and especially from those of others. This new approach is fast becoming unavoidable for achieving optimal organizational performance.

  • Mobilize and involve people

    In a highly competitive context, companies have to count upon employees who are motivated, mobilized and committed to achieving the company’s mission, vision, and business plan, while contributing to the promotion of its values. Certain catalysts and conditions are indispensable for getting employees mobilized and committed. Group coaching fosters the sharing of information between participants regarding the factors that can successfully generate mobilized and committed employees in the workplace.

  • Interdepartmental collaboration: how to reduce the silo effect

    In efficient organizations whose culture focuses on interdepartmental collaboration, employees interact spontaneously, regardless of their hierarchical level, role or department. This fosters energetic contributions to product and service development, to process improvements and to achieving optimal organizational performance, by taking into account the consequences that our decisions can have upon the organization. Knowing how to identify the experts and colleagues outside of our own group and how to collaborate with them helps reduce the impact of silos, by improving interactions between different departments and by giving team members greater visibility, in several domains.

  • Intervention strategies in performance management

    How should I intervene with a difficult employee? What can I do as a manager to improve the performance of certain members on my team? What should I be doing with my star employees and how do I keep them motivated? Every day, a majority of managers ask themselves these questions, without however finding the answers. With group coaching sessions, participants exchange with one another regarding their experiences and learn how to become better strategists in managing their employees’ performance.

  • Manage communications in difficult situations

    Engaging in difficult and delicate conversations sometimes appears to be an onerous task, but all the while necessary in certain situations. The essence of any manager's role is to manage all the situations that may arise. He or she has to call upon their managerial courage and get the job done. Not acting in such situations is sometimes not the best solution. The manager must rather demonstrate a positive attitude in difficult contexts. Group coaching enables participants to express their fears and hesitations when required to communicate to others in a difficult situation, while learning to overcome their fears.

  • Manage change

    Some people underestimate the importance of soundly managing change, while others overestimate the degree to which employees understand the changes being put forward. Either way, managing change should not be taken lightly. All change creates insecurity amongst individuals and generates expectations that are often unfulfilled. Group coaching provides a way to objectively view and understand the impact of change upon individuals and the organization, while helping to identify the outlines of a solution.
