Whether you work for an association, nonprofit organization, the government, a corporation or a PR agency, public relations is often viewed as a support function. But, at the end of the day, our goal is to move our organization’s or our client’s mission forward, which involves working with people at all levels and across multiple departments. Regardless of what level you are at in your career, ensuring that PR has a seat at the table is easier said than done. Most of us have had no formal training in the area, and we learn by trial and error.
Business coaching has entered into the realm as a proven way to help organizations minimize some of those hard lessons learned and break down silos to improve teamwork and synergy in order to advance an organization. How do you ensure your organization is among those on the leading edge and that you, as a PR professional, are among the team helping to drive that success?
This workshop will cover:
Real-life examples of businesses and individuals who have used business coaching and how it has resulted improved communication and greater collaboration, leading to increased productivity;
Tips on how to more effectively communicate expectations and provide constructive feedback; and
How to address the core issues that may be impacting performance to bring about sustainable change.
