JUST BECAUSE YOU'RE A GOOD LEADER DOESN'T MAKE YOU A GOOD COACH

Different Skillsets; Different Mindsets

The Just Because You’re a Good Leader Doesn’t Make You a Good Coach is an innovative masterclass that teaches the thought patterns and behaviors associated with successful coaching outcomes within a corporate environment. This program is for middle managers stepping into internal coaching roles. 

 

Participants in their leadership roles learn why—when stepping into coaching roles—doling out advice or solutions to problems often creates discord in the workplace and thwarts successful coaching outcomes. Equipped with a fresh perspective on coaching effectiveness, leaders can restrain and even neutralize the impulse to step in with solutions and answers every time a problem is brought to them.  Program details.
