Executive Coach and Online Program Facilitator
This program is aimed at people working in
high-tech, bio-tech, finance-tech, pick-your-name-tech.
It is for managers and aspiring leaders who want to create meaningful conversations to manage their workplace relationships.
This will change the way your lead your team
and help you establish yourself as an effective leader.
This workshop is a practical training designed to get professionals with that "technical/analytical mindset" to improve their leadership skills through four essential conversations.
These four key conversations have been created from an understanding of the core tools that we have encountered in our coaching sessions with our clients and research in management skills.
What people said:
Content has been very relevant for sure, and Roberto's delivery is amazing. He makes a 90min session go quite smoothly and productively. I am a big fan of having different groups involved, this is also a nice aspect of the program. Finally, the coaching conversations at the end of each call are really interesting and useful.
I really like learning about ways to engage people with questions and the role-play exercises
It was very helpful to be able to work with people from other departments and interact with them, practice and share ideas.
I really liked hearing examples from other managers, where they struggle, and especially, where they saw improvement.
Roberto, you are benevolent and are a great listener. It is a real pleasure to learn from you. I really liked how you shared stories to help us relate to the points.
Learning how to give feedback and the importance of the small steps to make them feel comfortable in accepting your input was really helpful.
