CAPITALIST WEBINAR: What Game of Thrones Can Teach HR About Coaching Styles and Building Teams!!!

Oh yeah - you've been thinking it was coming, right?  Well, it's here.  

A FOT webinar mashing HR stuff with Game of Thrones.  Curious what we can learn from Jon Snow about coaching malcontents in Halogen Webinar Badge, GTW your organization? Wondering how you can build a great team like the mother of dragons when you started with no FTE's?

“Winter is Coming.” “You Win or You Die.” “You Know Nothing, Jon Snow.”

If you’re a Game of Thrones fan, you know these quotes as parts of iconic conversations from your favorite series. If you’re not a fan of the series (TV or book), you still likely recognize these quotes as fodder from a series that’s made a friend a bit too obsessive.

The team at Fistful of Talent? We view these quotes as coaching conversations. That’s why we’ve built our next webinar around Game of Thrones.  

Join us on May 19th at 2pm Eastern for “RAISING DRAGONS: What Game of Thrones Teaches Us About Performance Coaching and Building Teams,” (click any of the links on this post to register) and we’ll use Castle Black and King’s Landing to explore best practices in performance coaching by giving you the following goodies:

— A quick rundown of the history of Game of Thrones from a leadership perspective. Have a favorite character who’s dead? Whether it’s Ned Stark or Khal Drago, we’ll go rapid fire and tell you what they did well from a coaching perspective, then tell you what dysfunction caused them to be… well… cancelled.

— We’ll feature the 5 most notorious leaders currently alive on the show and break down their coaching style—where they’re strong and where they struggle—with the help of the performance management experts at Halogen Software. Odds are you’ll find a mother of dragons, a short fellow and dire wolf owner in this breakdown. 

— We’ll breakdown the five most common coaching conversations in corporate America today and tell you which Game of Thrones leader your managers should emulate to nail the conversation—so they can maximize their team member’s performance.

We’ll wrap up the webinar by telling you what the coaching styles of the 5 characters featured means for their future—and the future of the teams they lead.

You’ve signed up for enough boring webinars, right? Break the pattern and register for our Game of Thrones webinar, and we’ll deliver the performance management/coaching science with a layer of pop culture you’ve grown to expect from Fistful of Talent.

Our company eRowz comprises of a small team that has been growing over the last few years. Although we are still a relatively small group we are expanding faster now that our customer reach is getting greater. We are therefore looking at how we can grow in the right way by using the appropriate training methods and coaching styles. We want to put focus on our staff as they are going to be the pillar of our company as we expand over the coming months and years. This is a very interesting approach and I like how the different styles on leadership in Game of Thrones is being related to modern day practices in the workplace. Thanks for the article, a fun and informative read.
