Coaching for Commitment Workshop

Third Edition

by Cindy Coe, Amy Zegnder, Dennis C. Kinlaw

This new, third edition of the best-selling Coaching for Commitment is based on the groundbreaking coaching work of the late Dennis C. Kinlaw. In this thoroughly revised and updated edition the authors, Cindy Coe and Amy Zehnder clearly show that coaching is a proven strategy for improving performance in today’s environment of intense competitiveness for total customer satisfaction, continuous improvement, and the drive to deliver superior products and services.

With an easy-to-use Facilitator’s Guide and comprehensive Participant Workbook, all the bases have been covered in this participant-centred, dynamic two-day workshop.

The accompanying DVD and CD contain coaching demos, a PowerPoint presentation, and samples of forms, worksheets, and handouts. The Self Assessment is intended for use by anyone who wants to identify (1) a coaching gap compared to an ideal, (2) the role(s) he or she gravitates toward, and (3) proficiency levels in using certain coaching skills during interactions with others. This product also has a 360-degree feedback component, called the Observer that is used to gain a holistic view of the behaviours and actions a person exhibits. The Observer also makes a great follow-up assessment for progress checks.

The Assessment is a 50-item questionnaire that users self-score. It takes approximately 20-30 minutes to complete and the associated Observer version takes about 15 minutes. Once completed, the inventory will reveal which of four roles—-instructor, mentor, manager and coach—-the participant is most likely to adopt when interacting with others. It will also show how frequently the skills of challenging, listening, asking, encouraging, and refining—-foundational skills for successful coaching—are deployed in a coaching conversation.

The Participant’s Workbook will serve as your learning tool, activity guide, and post-workshop reference guide.

Coaching for Commitment is intended for use by anyone who wants to identify:

  • a coaching skills gap compared to an ideal
  • the role(s) he or she gravitates toward
  • proficiency levels in using certain coaching skills during interactions with others
