In the webinar ‘What Makes Coaching Work?’ Sandra Ihenacho and Adaora Ayoade explore how coaching can be used as a tool to elevate performance, productivity, and efficacy. Ingrained beliefs that coaching is a time-consuming process with a low return on investment often make organizations resistant to invest in coaching programs. As the speakers dispel some of these beliefs, they also examine the crucial elements of the coaching process that ensure that the coaching relationship is impactful and highly successful.

By the end of the webinar, participants learn how to: 

  • Engage effectively with coaches to maximize the benefits of the coaching relationship 
  • Elevate their performance through the coaching process.
