The Basics of UNBASIC Coaching

Friday, May 4, 2018  12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Facilitator: Mike Thompson

We train to grow a skill or to develop a competency. We coach to change a life, a career, or a calling. There are many coaching models out there in the wild world of development. Learn how UNBASIC Coaching can bring better results with a unique, but simple approach.

UNBASIC Coaching doesn’t start with a model or a process. It starts with the person and with perspective before moving to the methodology. In this session, participants will understand how and why the UNBASIC Coach …

1. Has a Unique Perspective and Mindset

2. Prioritizes the Person Over the Process

3. Operates with Good Judgment and Finds Freedom within the Coaching Framework

About the facilitator:

Mike Thompson is the CEO of SVI, a talent development company which partners with complex global organizations to engage, train, assess and develop their entire workforce. He coaches executives and next-generation CEOs of the world’s largest companies.

Why do you want to attend the January Lunch & Learn SIG meeting?


Because…  You will learn principles that work from the best-selling book, Five Dysfunctions of a Team.

Because… A cohesive team will:

  • ·         Make better, faster decisions as people are aligned and on-board
  • ·         Leverage the skills, talents and opinions of all team members
  • ·         Ensure conflict becomes productive and healthy versus draining and damaging
  • ·         Focus on the results versus self-interest and politics
  • ·         Create a competitive advantage and sets your organization apart
  • ·         Eventually become “A Best Place to Work”


Join us for this interactive, engaging SIG where we will explore the behaviors that create a high performing team, give you practices to bring to your own organization and insight as to why this concept has been embraced and widely accepted around the world.
