Lead Like a Coach

Monday, May 13 | 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM | Grand Ballroom A

Presented by Dean Savoca, M.Ed, BCC, CSP(TM),  Founder,  Savoca Performance Group 

If you’re a leader, you can confirm the fact that at least 65% of your time is spent dealing with people issues. Current industry trends like high turnover, sales vs. operations and increasing customer demands put additional pressure and demands on you and your team. The pace is daunting. However ironic it sounds, sometimes slowing down can help managers bring out the best performance in their people and lead to better results. Possible? Absolutely. How?

A coaching approach to leadership, which leads to more cohesiveness, innovation, creativity and problem-solving, gives you some of that 65% of your time back to focus on other things. Employees who clearly understand expectations—and know they’re accountable—enjoy a higher level of job satisfaction, stay longer and produce better results. Isn’t that what we’re all after?
