4 x 90 MIN sessions
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.
"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."

FOUR learning goals
1. COACHING CONVERSATIONS
The evidence is out, the most sought-after skill by employees is that managers have coaching skills. This class focuses on key coaching skills managers need to empower others and build relationships. The program includes listening skills and a format for essential coaching questions to provoke self-reflection.
2. GIVING FEEDBACK AND DIFFICULT CONVERSATIONS
It can be difficult to give feedback and create interactions that empower everyone to take steps forward. In this class, we focus on learning a model of providing feedback that helps people be more receptive to receiving it while strengthening the relationship and taking responsibility for improving their performance.
3. SUPERCHARGE YOUR 1:1S WITH YOUR TEAM
Your 1:1 meetings are not just to check on projects and get updates. Much more than that, your 1:1 conversations are an opportunity to build relationships, increase engagement and create trust. When you do that, everything becomes easier and more interesting for everyone. Learn about the importance of 1:1 meetings and a format that creates engagement using the five key components of a supercharged 1:1 meeting.
4. PURPOSEFUL DELEGATION
There is a major career transition point when managers must shift from doing the work to getting work done through others. As a manager, you need to change focus to coaching others, developing their skills, and helping them become more autonomous. That means understanding the risks of delegation, building trust in others, and empowering them to get the job done so you can focus on more strategic thinking and visioning.
"Learning how to give feedback and the importance of the small steps to make them feel comfortable in accepting your input was really helpful."
"It was very helpful to be able to work with people from other departments and interact with them, practice and share ideas."

Through years of classroom facilitation and coaching for a multitude of Fortune 500 companies, I gained extensive experience helping emerging leaders to build emotional intelligence and obtain the essential leadership skills needed to succeed. At the same time, I coach individuals to align their needs and personal values with their work to achieve fulfillment and exceptional results.
I authored a book "You've got algorithm, but can you dance? Learn to lead with heart and empathy."
The essence of my work is to facilitate self-growth by helping people identify the core challenges and setbacks in their lives so that they can overcome them with confidence.
There is nothing that motivates me more than seeing people take on a challenge and daring to be their true selves.
