Workplace Coaching: Turning Talent Into Strength

When we think of the leaders who inspire us most, we often describe them as mentors. Coaching gives them this status. A mentor is just someone who has taken a personal interest in us; someone who is willing to pass on what he or she has learned. This is what make workplace coaching such an essential and powerful leadership practice.

People, and the way they perform, lift or limit leaders, success rests on their skills and motivations. Leaders who are not coaching are missing one of their most powerful team building opportunities.

"In 2007 following the acquisition of the Osprey Newspaper organization, Sun Media's newly formed Senior Leadership team saw a significant need for Leadership Development. As we began to look for a business partner it quickly became apparent that Dan Gaynor was the logical choice. Dan's ability to communicate in a clear and concise manner creates an environment of open and frank dialogue which is critical to the learning experience. Dan draws on his own personal experience from a wide variety of Senior Management roles to present content in a practical and non-theoretical manner. Over 400 leaders attended Dan's sessions. The feedback and comments from the participants has been nothing short of extraordinary. To a person they have commented that they enjoyed the sessions and were able to take what they learned and apply it quickly and effectively."
