Leadership & Management

The Manager as Coach

Managers are more effective when people trust and believe in them.

Yet every employee is different. Some want strong, assertive management; others want their manager’s role to be about listening and helping them to learn. Some employees want management that nurture them; others prefer a manager’s role to simply be about setting direction and then stepping back to let individuals free to deliver results.

Coaching yourself is where The Manager as Coach starts before helping participants to develop effective coaching skills to coach people who are different from themselves.
