Workshop: Coaching in a Polarized Environment

Workshop: Coaching in a Polarized Environment

Presented by College of Continuing Education at Sacramento State at The Urban Hive at The Cannery

Polarization in society continues to increase, and this bleeds over into the workplace. We find entrenched mindsets of black and white thinking that make it difficult to create an environment of growth for our teams. This shows up as unhealthy conflict, disengagement, and resistance to personal and organizational change. These are not problems that can be solved using traditional methods, they are tensions that require a both/and mindest and skill set to be able to effectively address. In this workshop, we will identify common workplace issues that arise from black and white thinking, and how you as a leader can utilize a both/and approach in your coaching to reduce resistance and increase performance.

-Understand the differences between either/or and both/and mindsets, and their impact on coaching.
-Use resistance to help diagnose the root cause of challenges.
-Get your team unstuck in unhelpful patterns to help them achieve their full potential.
