COACH U 2017

Celebrating Canada’s 150th with 150 new ideas

May 9 & 10 Sandman Toronto Airport Hotel, Toronto, ON

Opening Keynote: John Whitehead “Before You Lead…”

Many topics around leadership seem fairly straight forward and common sense.  What is leadership?  How do you lead?  Leadership styles. But as a young and promising individual…What do I need to do to prepare myself to lead?  What do I have to work on?  What do I have to do, and become?  And finally, how will I know when I have arrived and I am ready to lead?

Kerry Paul “What your CSRs aren’t telling you”

A interactive look (and group discussions) about anonymous internet posts from front line CSR’s  in the Call Center business.  We will look at stories that show what staff think and feel about their supervisors, performance reviews, metrics and company policies as well as interesting stories about the various kinds of calls they handle.

The challenge – understanding the value of employees

Key to success – ask the people

  • Measure results – ask the people again
  • Suggestions for similar implementation
  • Floor open for questions and feedback

John Whitehead “The Real Purpose Of Listening”

Unless you live by yourself deep in the forest for the rest of your life, you are going to need to interact with others.  If you want meaningful, trusting, open, and enjoyable relationships, then you need to master this very easy yet surprisingly missing aspect of listening.  Spouse, children, siblings, friends, co-workers…it does not matter.  Let me share with you what you need to do…before you can be an effective listener.
