Forward-thinking leaders have discovered that the skills coaches use to create winners in the athletic arena are no different in the world of work. In today’s fast-paced and competitive workplaces, the successful manager, supervisor or team leader has to be a lot like the coach of a sports team. And winning teams don’t just happen, whether they’re on the playing field or in the workplace! High-performing teams are created by trained and capable leaders who’ve learned how to motivate, guide, and empower their people to realize their true potential toward unparalleled success. These same leaders have also mastered the skills to manage the under-achievers, those challenging employees whose aptitude and the attitude seem to be sadly lacking.

If you want to maximize every employee’s abilities, then you can’t afford to miss this content-rich program with leadership expert Merge Gupta-Sunderji. In a fast-paced interactive format, Merge will show you, step by step, how to analyze your lineup and create a concrete and compelling “game plan” to coach your people to peak performance.
