Time-strapped managers often find themselves defaulting to an old- school management approach: tell rather than ask. But solving problems instead of helping people find their own solutions perpetuates bottle-necks and firefighting.

Learning how to coach is the most effective way to lead. When managers coach they build stronger, more focused teams and get better results. It also allows them to work less hard and have more impact.

This is a great introductory session we would recommend for all managers. It helps them to understand what a coaching mindset is and how to adopt it – leading to a dramatic shift in their management style.
