Course Description

Why are some people more difficult to coach or mentor than others?  Why does one person get motivated by challenging work, while another gets stressed out by it?  Perhaps you’ve noticed that individual employees respond differently to different types of instruction and feedback. Some may want specific directions and welcome objective feedback, while others may want just the opposite. The reality is that you have a natural approach to working with and coaching others. However, to maximize satisfaction and productivity, it’s important to consider how effective your coaching approach may be with employees of different styles. People who think and respond in ways familiar to you may be easier for you to connect with and coach. You may also have difficulty connecting with or coaching others who respond very differently than you. This two-day seminar will help leaders, managers and coaches develop strategies to coach people with diverse styles. Using the power of Everything DiSC®, we will examine four behavioural styles and practise strategies to connect more effectively in one-on-one leadership coaching situations. Leaders, managers and coaches will practise flexing and adjusting their coaching style so they can more effectively delegate, motivate and develop others. 


  • Fundamental coaching skills and principles
  • Why it is important to coach to different styles
  • Everything DiSC Styles and the preferences and priorities of your unique style
  • How to recognize other people’s DiSC styles
  • How to flex and adapt your coaching style when directing and delegating to different styles
  • How to create a motivating environment for different styles
  • Obstacles and strategies in each style’s development process
  • Advocating and getting buy-in from your manager
