When leaders step away from the mindset of a boss and into the mindset of a coach, great things can happen; engagement and productivity rise, working relationships become stronger and much more. Whether in sports or on the job, coaches allow their employees to do what they do best. They provide support in the moment and collaboratively work with the individual to find a solution.
In Coaching Skills For Managers, you will practice coach-like habits and skills that will allow you to multiply the talent on your team and unleash their full potential. Not to mention, as you progress through the program you will be able to tap into your facilitator and peers to discuss and work through coaching challenges being faced on the job.

"Since attending, I’m doing a much better job holding back from always providing solutions. Team members are telling me they feel more empowered in our discussions. I feel like our trust is growing. They are understanding that they are in the driver’s seat more."
