Coaching: The Must Learn Skill for Managers in 2019

hosted by General Assembly

Daniel Goleman identifies coaching as the most effective management style, and yet the least practiced. Coaching is a way of helping members of your team solve the real problems they are facing, rather than the surface ones. Coaching promotes self-sufficiency and can significantly improve individual and team performance. In today's business environment where employees have a lot of choice about where they work, coaching can create a deep manager-employee relationship built around trust, and gives you the capability to develop your team.

In this panel, we'll hear from three perspectives on coaching: an expert coach, a manager successfully deploying coaching and an HR leader. We'll cover:

What a coach approach to management is
Why a coaching approach is so impactful
Why learn how to coach as a manager now
How to get started with coaching
