    Speaker: Ken Redick, CEAP, PCC, CSAC, Carilion Practice Manager and Professional Certified Coach
    1.0 General Credit

    In this hour presentation, the speaker will elaborate on the cultural shift that needs to take place to increase employee engagement and ownership. The starting place is our positive regard and mindset shift for the employees that we supervise: seeing them as whole, competent and brilliant, despite what sometimes is evident. Secondly, that the supervisor or leader is intentional about creating effective relationships with employees, seeing that relationship building can actually positively impact their productivity and team engagement. Thirdly, that coaching skills can be used to assist into evaluation process, developmental plans and even disciplinary action, all with increasing motivation and buy-in. 

    Session Learning Objectives:

    • Learn and rehearse the core competencies of effective coaching
    • Learn and practice authentic dialoguing with employees who need direction or feedback
    • Demonstrate effective coaching interventions with already-present tools/instruments within their organizations, such as evaluations, developmental plans and disciplinary actions
