Manager Coach Toolkit

Everything you need to build a basic understanding of what coaching @ the workplace is and how it can be conducted.

Authoritative leadership is not an option any longer. Try coaching instead!

Coaching isn't about telling people what to do. This is about helping your team members improve performance, solve problems, make better decisions, learn new skills, and reach their career goals. More than anything, this is creating a satisfactory, enriching and rewarding work environment.
