The Magic of Coaching within Leadership

discovering potential and achieving extraordinary results

with Marc Desrosiers, MBA, ABC, P.Mgr

Are you witnessing an appalling lack of leadership to evoke the full and willing commitmentof employees to apply their energies to achieve top performance?

Do you subscribe to the view that a strong and vibrant workplace is where you – as a manager / supervisor / leader – could and should engage both the hearts and minds of individuals and teams to use all of their talents to contribute to high performance results?

As leaders or leaders-in-the-making, we do have the power to engage others, to set and achieve goals, to act authentically, to dream of the impact we want to make, and to follow through on that dream.

and now … Marc Desrosiers will introduce you to that dream and to the often forgotten art and magic of coaching!

Coaching . . . Supports you as a manager/supervisor/leader at all levels by introducing fresh ways of listening, thinking, learning and leading in today’s world.

Helps you and your ‘coach-ee’ to attain a higher level of success in both your personal and professional lives; discovering full potential and achieving a synergy of extraordinary results.
