Ed shows how leading during the most turbulent times means taking action at home, at work and in the world, even when nothing seems easy, clear or smooth.

Coaching Skills for Managers

Sometimes, to perform at their best, employees may need just a few questions answered or have a skill demonstrated to them. However, many managers may not know how to coach their employees and without a good manager to model for them, they may not even identify coaching as a means to developing these skills.

Coaching Skills for Managers provides the employee with enough information to be able to move ahead on the current project or assignment and to better know how to move forward and make progress in the future. As a manager, good coaching skills allow you to empower your people, push them to be their best – without pushing them too hard and guide them to greatness.

This program is best for:

  • Managers and supervisors with less than one year’s experience.
  • Experienced managers with little or no formal supervisory training.
  • Experienced managers who’d like to brush up on their skills.
  • Aspiring and soon-to-be-promoted managers/supervisors.
