“Growing your Acumen as a Coaching and Mentoring Leader,” hosted by WEST, a Williston Financial Group Company, is a free, three-part webinar series designed to provide lending industry executives and managers with insights that will lead to more engaged, empowered and productive workforces.

By sharing proven theories and successful techniques that can be easily implemented, three leading figures in the fields of coaching, mentoring and lending will present separate hour-long Zoom sessions on consecutive Wednesdays beginning July 29 at 10 a.m. Pacific / 1 p.m. Eastern.

The series is organized so that each webinar focuses on a critical concept within a single hour, including time for questions.

The seminars are “Three Signs of a True Coaching Leader,” with Greg Harkavy, Senior Executive Coach at Building Champions, Inc. (July 29); “Three Ways to Navigate Difficult Conversations with Greater Confidence,” with Sandy Intraversato, an Executive Coach and Partner with Iron Coaching covering (August 5); and “Three Keys to Being a Mentor Leader,” with Rose Marie David, EVP, Divisional Production Manager with HomeBridge Financial (August 12).

Tammy London, VP National Business Development for WFG Enterprise Solutions, will host the seminars.

“Each panelist will share three key learning nuggets for the purpose of igniting managers to grow their coaching and mentoring competencies, overcome fears, increase Emotional Intelligence (EI) and ignite effectiveness in the roles they serve,” she said. “Our goal is to give lending leaders around the country a virtual coaching session with specific ways to raise the quality of influence, prompt meaningful conversations and ultimately create positive change.”

Greg Harkavy’s ‘Three signs of a True Coaching Leader’

Harkavy’s opening seminar focuses on three best practices that set great coaching leaders apart.

“When it comes to what employees are looking for from their leaders and employers,” he said, “the standard is higher than ever. It’s less about a paycheck and perks and more about a sense of connection and support that allows them to grow and thrive. To meet this need, you need to be more than a manager; you need to become a coaching leader.”

Over nearly 20 years Harkavy has coached hundreds of clients, from team leaders looking to grow their leadership effectiveness, to CEOs and small business owners through strategic planning and execution. Prior to becoming a full-time executive coach he spent 13 years working in the mortgage industry delivering extraordinary results as his company’s Number One originator, leading its top branch and production team, while working with owners to launch a successful start-up.

“Those who join us on this first webinar should walk away with new insights and practical strategies to improve self-leadership, better engage people through vision and provide their people with the clarity around their roles and goals they need to be successful,” he added. “I’ve designed it to equip both newer and experienced leaders to up their coaching game.”
