The ability to coach direct reports effectively has a tremendous impact on your leadership competency and career. Direct reports want to follow leaders who can coach them to be better. Being an effective coach as a leader not only builds your people, and your team, it also enables you to move into a strategic space and heighten your effectiveness for the organization you represent.
In this seminar you will learn powerful yet straightforward processes and tools for coaching effectively. These tools incorporate the latest findings in neuroscience and are used throughout the senior leadership team at Microsoft Headquarters in Seattle.
