Learning Coaching Skills takes professional training and a lot of practice.  What if you don’t have a whole group of leaders to train?

Where do you go to train 1,2,3 leaders in the basics and necessary skills of coaching?

What if you simply can’t afford to take your leaders out of the day-to-day business for two full days?


The Coaching Clinic: Coaching Skills for Leaders has historically been a core People Biz on-site training, delivered over two days.  The training is sought after by organizations that want to train their managers and leaders to develop employees, and ultimately create a coaching culture within their company.

We have now taken this popular course and turned it into a powerful program that can be taken by you and your leadership team virtually over six months, saving you time and money. In fact, we believe this method of delivery will be even more effective, because participants will have time between sessions to practice what they are learning.

The intention of this program is to transform the leaders ability to engage others, by moving them from a command-and-control model of communication, to one of collaboration, empowerment, and accountability.

Coaching is the quickest and most effective method for developing your employees.

After completing this program, participants will have the ability to:

  • Use a collaborative and supportive communication model, instead of the traditional tell-and-direct model
  • Seize daily coaching situations with employees, clients and even their children
  • Identify goals and create action plans with employees
  • Give and receive feedback in a neutral way
  • Create an environment of accountability
  • Lead courageous conversations
  • Be curious, instead of judgmental
  • Ask powerful questions that encourage innovation and learning
  • Utilize coaching skills when doing performance reviews

In addition to managing your employees, the communication skill-set learned is useful in sales, parenting, and with peers and vendors. This is a fun, highly participative and practical course, designed to provide you and your leaders with the tools and skills needed to become an outstanding coach.

“I attended the Coaching Clinic this month and it was worth the trip from Florida to Austin! Every manager who has direct reports should consider taking this workshop to improve their listening skills, increase employee retention, and gain the tools to be a better manager by becoming a better coach. I highly recommend this course, to learn how to improve your business and inspire your team.” – Lynnette Leathers, Owner, Mindspot 



“I recently had the opportunity to take The Coaching Clinic through People Biz, Inc., and it has literally transformed my life. Before the training I thought a lot about myself and I felt like I was stuck, but didn’t know why. I’m at a place now that I feel confident in developing a vision, casting a vision, being a part of that vision and then doing it all over again. Through the process of coaching, I came to realize what for me was a block, was just an opportunity to explore possibility. I am now committed to my time and my team.” – Paul Fournier, Manager, Technology PMO at Seattle Information Technology



“People Biz, Inc. held one of the most engaging sessions I’ve ever attended. The Coaching Clinic addressed a ton of real-world situations and I am having good success with a number of her techniques. I have recommended this Clinic for all of my managers.” – Nichole Marconi, Director of Acquisition,
