Join us for a 1-day workshop on helping others develop their problem-solving skills.
Upon completing this workshop participants will be better equipped to:
- Recognize the fundamental difference between coaching for development and coaching for correction or result
- Use humble inquiry questioning to engage others in responsibility for being self-directed learners
- Lead others in setting self-development goals and contracting for a developmental coaching relationship
- Lead others in focusing their development aims on specific skills and designing small learning experiments
- Facilitate others in self-refection to consolidate their learning from their development experiences
|Cost||$800* (Includes all materials, breakfast, lunch and snacks)|
Relying on self-directed learning and experimentation, this workshop expands on the ideas and practices introduced in our Humble Inquiry Coaching programs to focus on helping others develop the capabilities and thinking required for implementing lean and sustaining a culture of continuous improvement.
“Helping others develop their problem-solving thinking and skills does not happen in a one-time interaction. It requires an ongoing relationship, based on clearly defined and agreed upon expectations rather than assumptions.”
Managers and leaders who want to understand how a coach’s presence and intentions can influence the success of a coaching relationship.
To optimize your learning experience, we recommend attending or being familiar with the concepts presented in these two workshops prior to participating in this program.
Learn more about the instructors who will be leading you through this immersive 2-day workshop.

What to Expect After Registration
One week before your workshop(s) you will receive an email from LEI containing a link to download an electronic version of your workshop manual(s). Please add email@example.com to your safe-senders list in order to ensure you receive this message.
When you receive your e-manual(s) one week before your workshop(s) we recommend doing the following:
- Download your workshop e-manual(s)
- Review your e-manual(s) to be ready to get the most out of your workshop
Additionally, you have the following options:
Do nothing. You will be given a notepad and pen at your workshop and the slides and information contained in the electronic manual are the same that will be used by the instructor during your workshop.
Print out a copy. If you prefer to have a hard-copy manual (we recommend double-sided), you may create one and bring it with you to your workshop.
Download. Put the e-manual(s) on a iPad or other device. You may find a PDF-writer App useful in accomplishing this.
Please note that it is your decision to print, store, and access the e-manual before and during your LEI workshop. We will not be providing hard-copy manuals at the workshop and it is NOT required that you have a printed copy with you. If you are unable to perform any of these or need any assistance, please email LEI at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Workshop Materials are available for 30 days after the workshop has completed.
