Coaching Essentials®

Coaching is the single most important managerial skill that separates a highly effective manager from the rest. The problem is, most managers don’t understand how critical coaching is for the development, growth, and performance of their people. Because they don’t know how to use coaching in their leadership style, their employees stay stuck on projects, becoming discouraged and demotivated. We know how frustrating it can be when your managers aren’t developing their people as effectively as they could be. Your managers deserve training that will deepen their leadership skills, so they can better accelerate the development and performance of those they lead. 

Coaching Essentials®, authored by Blanchard® Master Certified Coaches, teaches managers how to use coach-like behaviours so that productivity goes up, teams are more unified and the company performs better overall. Their program embraces the tried-and-true coaching competencies as defined by the International Coaching Federation; The Ken Blanchard ® Companies expert authors have spent more than 20 years mastering the language and practices that make these methods immediately useful. By integrating coaching skills into your management training, you get highly effective managers who know how to conduct powerful coaching conversations that create connection, increase trust, and help their team members perform at their best.
