Coaching Fundamentals

People have untapped potential, and they also have hidden talents that are waiting to be discovered. It’s a manager’s job to unlock potential and find these hidden abilities. Coaching is the way that you do that. Coaching is the single most important skill for anyone who’s responsible for getting the most from a team.

It's so easy to forget about the value of coaching, so in this course you’ll learn (or be reminded of) why coaching is so important in business. We’ll provide you with a range of practical tips, tools and techniques to help you become an accomplished coach (and, therefore, a successful manager of people).
