We are excited to announce our upcoming webinar!
Event Date: 5/17/2018 (2:00 pm EDT- 3:00 pm EDT)
Coaching team members is one of the most under-valued responsibilities of managers. It’s something they feel they do simply by talking with a team member and asking how he or she is doing in their job and giving appropriate “Atta-boys” or “Atta-girls.” Of course, this is very important and it’s sometimes referred to as “emotional nutrition.” However, it’s not coaching in the sense of skill-building and professional development for the employee.
True coaching is one of the most powerful methods of motivating employees, broadening and improving their skills and increasing their retention. It requires a separate set of skills that positions managers as teachers, advisors, and career counselors.
