Coaching for Business Success – Coaching 5/5/5 – Coaching Out of the Box®

*This program is approved by the International Coach Federation

Why this Program?
Today’s business environment has rapidly changing expectations, technologies and market demands. It’s about gaining a competitive edge. Today’s managers and leaders are charged with maximizing their own performance, and the performance of their team of employees. Coaches work with individuals and organizations to maximize their potential. They bring out the best in people by helping them improve performance, communications, relationships, and team-building. Coaching Skills are essential for leaders and managers who want to maximize that competitive edge.

The 5/5/5 Coaching Skills Training Program™ draws from the most advanced knowledge base in the coaching field and is translated into a simple, intuitive and highly transferable framework for busy executives and managers.

Learners acquire tools that move them

  • From talking ‘at’ others to new ways of listening.
  • From building walls to building trust.
  • From telling others what to do to asking powerful questions.
  • From harsh truths to productive feedback.
  • From problem solving for others to developing resourceful, self-reliant problem solvers.

This program consists of a one-day workshop with the opportunity for practice sessions following the initial workshop. Facilitated by Glenys Reeves-Gibbs, Executive Director, Regional Business Accelerator.
