Our goal in this course is to become a manager who is also an exceptional coach. There are incredible benefits to teams and companies that come from great coaching. And you will gain a personal sense of growth and purpose from becoming a great coach who can help those around you grow and develop.
You may be starting this journey with a strong interest in developing others, and with good instincts like empathy, and an ability to listen deeply. But wherever you are now in your journey to become a great coach, we’re going to do this together, one small act of leadership at a time.
When you learn to be a coaching manager, you become less interested in your own personal power and more interested in helping others be happy and thrive at work. You've worked hard to get to where you are – now it's time to shift to helping others.
In this course you will learn:
To prepare for coaching by developing the mindset of being grateful to empower others
To recognize What is coachable (not everything), and Who is coachable (anyone who is willing)
To use successful coaching approaches and models in your work
To leverage powerful questions to help your partner achieve their goals
To give meaningful assignments to spur growth
Who this course is for:
- New and experienced managers and team leaders who want to develop others.
