Coaching is the single most important managerial skill that separates a highly effective manager from the rest. The problem is, most managers don’t understand how critical coaching is for the development, growth, and performance of their people. Because they don’t know how to use coaching in their leadership style, their employees stay stuck on projects, becoming discouraged and demotivated.
We know how frustrating it can be when your managers aren’t developing their people as effectively as they could be. Your managers deserve training that will deepen their leadership skills, so they can better accelerate the development and performance of those they lead.
