Managers and supervisors can create the workplace they want, where focused, motivated, and self-directed employees want to come to work, develop, and grow. They must learn to coach to get these results. Coaching is an employee-centered and time-focused process. It helps bosses at all levels create a realistic prescription for change, using tools, experience, guidance, career-path mentoring, and continuing support and facilitate performance management and employee engagement. Employees can be both taught and led, using coaching interventions that help them build their skills, redirect unproductive behaviors, and become more self-reliant. This webinar will help managers and supervisors solve a complex organizational problem – how to get the very best from all employees, at every level using the coaching skills for leaders.
It can be challenging and difficult to meet with employees who are struggling with work performance and/or work behavioral issues. Managers and supervisors need to have the courage to confront these concerns, using the coaching meeting process, both early and often. This webinar session will discuss effective coaching skills for managers and will provide the tools necessary for performance management and employee engagement.
