Coaching Skills for Effective Leadership

  • Leadership
  • Course Code: 32506

Engaging the best in people to achieve results

Effective leaders know that the way to get exceptional results, consistently over time, is by connecting people with their talents, interests and potential. That’s where coaching comes in. Coaching expands capacity and confidence, while driving greater commitment to organizations and their goals. But by “coaching” we’re not talking about the twice a year “performance review”. True coaching is about how you work with and through people every day to inspire better performance. If you want to learn to do this more effectively, this course is for you.
