'The ripest peach is highest on the tree.' 'A man's reach should exceed his grasp.' How do you motivate employees to go after 'the ripest peach,' or reach for the skill level that seems beyond their grasp? You do it by coaching. Coaching is what cultivates employee growth, not to mention employee loyalty. In Managing as Coach and Counselor, you'll learn to take people from adequacy to excellence. And as you build their self-esteem, confidence, and competence, you'll be building on the bottom line. This course explores four coaching styles, and the methodology to use them all. You'll also discover techniques to overcome employee resistance. Another key learning module is designed to get your workers past the confusion or mistrust that comes with having a new kind of boss. After all, if you are suddenly 'coach,' as opposed to supervisor, they'll need thoughtful dialogue as to why you've changed your approach, and what you hope to accomplish. After this course, you will be able to develop a workplace filled with high achievers.
