Demand for leadership coaching has skyrocketed worldwide in the last five years, but few people can afford a professional coach. Employers who do utilize coaching for employee development, often make coaching available only to top- or poor-performers, leaving behind a large part of the workforce. Busy racking up buzzworthy, technical credentials on their own time, today’s emerging workers and mid-career professionals teeter precariously between personal and career aspirations, perhaps compromising their well-being and experiencing burnout.

Successful leaders must first lead themselves, learning and executing behaviors that build them into strong, successful people and leaders. Many so-called ‘soft skills’ crucial for both personal development and leadership, are backed with hard science. This webinar highlights some of the current research from cognitive and social psychology, well-being, and leadership science which demonstrates how soft skills impact measurable, quantitative results demanded by today’s leaders.

Borrowing from her book, ‘Skills That Build: The Hard Science of Soft Skills for Work and Life’, Gina shares the well-being benefits gained from exercising the behaviors that build us into better, more satisfied leaders. She offers accessible ways for participants to coach themselves in four critical areas leading to sustainable growth.

Sharing stories from her coaching and consulting practice, groundbreaking scientific research, business examples of transformational behaviors, Gina’s webinar will inspire you to learn and hone your ‘building’ behaviors and jump-start your uniquely personal strategy for growth.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn how science is contributing to our understanding of well-being at work.
  • Learn models of well-being that contribute to workplace success and personal satisfaction.
