Coaching Essentials for Leaders

Think about great managers or great leaders with whom you've worked.
What was it about them that made them so effective?

The unanimous response is that the most effective managers and leaders have the qualities of a great coach.

Leaders who utilize coaching skills have more effective teams, higher morale, and better bottom-line results than those who don't. These leaders have high levels of retention of key people, better customer service in their organizations, and higher productivity. And let's face it -- people remember them and their impact.

How can leaders become more coach-like in their behaviors and actions? Coaching Essentials for Leaders focuses on the development and practical application of core coaching skills and a coaching conversation model, enabling leaders to become more 'coach-like' with their colleagues and teams. Through personalized, one-on-one follow-up coaching sessions, leaders are encouraged to apply, evaluate and discuss the effectiveness of their new behaviors.
