The Secret Weapon of a Lean Six Sigma Corporate Training Program

Corporate training comes in many formats; in class, online, self-study, or blended programs are just some of the options that exist for busy professionals and organizations. But one often overlooked aspect of training could be considered the secret weapon of all programs: coaching. Coaching is teaching that is centered on skills development, building a relationship and driving accountability. With a heavy use of inquiry, this form of teaching helps students to achieve their goals.

Whether it's one-on-one or in a group setting - on the phone or in person - building coaching sessions into Lean Six Sigma programs can have powerful effects on information retention, capability application, and realized goals. These things are essential for organizational development and an ultimate transformation.

Coaching allows the trainer to clarify concepts and tools, listen to progress updates, and resolve interpersonal and organizational issues. Coaches remove roadblocks and share examples from past problem-solving successes. Coaching connects content with experiences and work so that students are successful in applying and sustaining what they've learned.

But HOW do you do it?

In this session, learn key best practices for coaching that leads to real results. These include:-Inspire People to Learn: Influence the student to learn and improve the skills that are important to them. The best results often come from what the student wants to learn, not what they have to learn. Lean thinking is empowering people to solve their own problems.-Set Focused Improvement Targets: Rather than trying to improve everything at once, help the student develop simple and clear action plans to align with desired goals.-Focus on Success: Coach with positive feedback focused on starting desirable practices rather than stopping undesirable ones. The desirable practices eventually eliminate the undesirable practices by focusing on success.
