Texas Aggies Go to War Exhibit

Event Dates and Times

10/24/2017 - 12/16/2017
Stark Galleries, Memorial Student Center, Texas A&M University
A full scale presentation of the Texas Aggies Go to War exhibit which debuted in Bastogne, Belgium in 2014 will be on display on the Texas A&M campus in the J Wayne Stark Galleries in the Memorial Student Center. The exhibit will tell the story of five former students of Texas A&M University who each had a role in the pivotal Battle of the Bulge which led to the Allied victory in Europe. These five—James Hollingsworth ‘40, Turney Leonard ‘42, Willie Peña ‘42, Joe Routt ’37 and Earl Rudder ’32 —are representative not only of all Aggies, but all Americans, who served in World War II. Through them a story is told of dedication, sacrifice, reconciliation, healing, and deep ties, both personal and economic, between people an ocean apart. The full exhibit will be part of the Military Heritage Center, which will be built in College Station's Veterans Park.

How to Effectively Coach

Event Dates and Times

12/14/2017
Online Event
This Course is approved by HRCI and SHRM Recertification Provider.

Overview: Coaching is one of the most effective ways to develop people. It creates an environment where people know how much you care and are willing to do to help them achieve greatness. It is not about the coach, it is all about the coaches. One of the real joys is both individuals will derive benefits from the experience.

The unique modality of coaching is an opportunity to reward striving employees, encourage greater achievement and develop people beyond their own self-limiting beliefs. The most successful individuals, athletes, actors, executives and students all have derived benefit from being coached. The only people who don't need a coach are those who choose to be mediocre.

There is both art and science in the application of coaching. The coach has to work at becoming a highly competent coach. It is not something that should be approached casually or be taken for granted. It is hard work and requires training and skill development.

The rewards of effective coaching are greatest for the individual, and for the coach. A company that values its people will grow stronger, make more profits and develop their company into a great place to work when coaching is an integral part of the culture.

Why should you Attend: Whatever your chosen leadership style, it is in your best interest to incorporate coaching with your direct reports. Multiple surveys of employees have validated the biggest desired need of people is to feel they are included and valuable. There is nothing more powerful than a coaching relationship to build that type of relationship.

You don't need a title to be a coach. The most effective employees know how to coach themselves and others both up and down the proverbial "chain of command." That's right, if you are smart, you will learn how to coach your boss.

Paul Hersey, the originator of Situational Leadership, believed that leadership is simply "influence" and there is a lot of truth in that concept. The beauty of coaching is it involves influence that is desired by both parties. This is clearly not discipline, remedial counseling or behavior modification. Coaching is a very positive, uplifting and progressive endeavor, it can produce remarkable results.

Areas Covered in the Session:

Developing Awareness
Disciplined Listening
Understanding Emotional Intelligence
Relating to the Big Picture
The Art of Asking Questions
Creating Safety and Confidence
The Power of Silence

Who Will Benefit:

Supervisors

Instructor:
David's passion is helping executives create a masterpiece personally and professionally. That's why he wrote, "The CEO Code," a Best Seller on AMAZON. That success resulted in Penguin/Alpha Books asking David to write "IDIOT'S GUIDES: Management Skills" released in December 2014.
