Coaching for employee development: Successful managers bring the best out of their employees and encourage their development. However, when stepping into a new leadership role, developing others is often a skill that managers need to hone. A coaching approach promotes genuine conversations that allows a direct report to gain clarity about their goals, identify their blind spots, become accountable for their actions, and increase their level of satisfaction and productivity. In this session, we will discuss the differences of managing versus coaching and outline a framework that will help you shape your coaching conversations and better develop the skills of your direct reports. You will be challenged to put these frameworks into practice, employing various coaching tools in multiple coaching scenarios, ensuring that you feel confident to apply these practices in your professional roles.
**Coaching for employee development is part of a four part series on management. Participants who attend three of our four management offerings within one year will earn an online certificate of completion from the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce and Bentley University.
