Coaching and Mentoring for Excellence

Increasing demands on the Federal workforce are requiring organizations to work at higher levels of performance with fewer resources and staff. Developing employees through on-the-job coaching or mentoring can increase the organization’s ability to succeed. This seminar explores how to use these important tools to help others develop both technically and as leaders in order to improve their organization’s overall performance. Through classroom instruction, small-group interaction, and practice sessions, this seminar will teach you how to coach and mentor employees who are facing choices regarding career advancement or need guidance in mastering their current positions through professional development.
