Effective Leadership through Coaching

Skip to Scheduled Dates

Course Overview

In the face of rapid, disruptive change, companies understand that command-and-control leadership is no longer viable. As a result, many firms are moving toward a coaching model in which managers facilitate problem solving and encourage employees’ development by asking questions and offering support and guidance rather than giving orders and making judgments. Leaders can use the GROW and Thought models of coaching to become more skilled at listening, questioning, and drawing insights out of the people they supervise. This course will help you develop coaching skills that motivate employees to reach their full potential.
