A note from the author
I remember the first coaching session I ran...😱
It was a little more telling than listening
In my defence I was a very busy manager (with an endless to do list) and I knew the answer to their problem - so telling them was quicker?!
Of course the next time that team member had an issue they knew who to turn to for the answer...
ME - the busy fool!
Only around 30% of managers in the UK know how to coach effectively.
Leaving around 70% who think coaching is teaching or telling
Just imagine that means around 70% of teams must be an over-dependant one too with lots of overstretched managers with degrees in firefighting
Effective coaching skills (and this coaching skills workbook) can help improve:
✔ Decision making
✔ Communication and culture
...in both the coach and the coachee
