Solve the Number One Coaching Problem

The number one problem in coaching and corporate America today- managers are not engaging in critical conversations. What’s keeping managers from having this dialogue? It’s not lack of time, even though that’s usually the first block that comes up. It’s not that they are unqualified to be partaking in crucial conversations. What is the issue? Managers don’t know what to do and what to say when having crucial conversations that tie training objectives and coaching together. So, how do you provide managers with the skills and practice needed to become agile when it comes to having these conversations? 

Every single day, managers are faced with a barrage of situations that fall outside of what they were specifically trained to do as it relates to their job. Workplaces are filled with people with bad attitudes, need a boost of motivation, thirsting for career-based coaching conversations, millennials who want to be promoted tomorrow (which, spoiler, isn’t a bad thing!), people who are coasting until retirement- all of which are scenarios that are vital to address in order to create a workplace where people embrace coaching. 

How do you train people to address any and all types of situations that come up? Training managers in the art of conversation is the mechanism that will tie training and learning objectives and coaching together to create lasting impact. Don’t let the lack of conversation get in the way of your workplace achieving your goals. Want to learn more about how this service will impact your training and learning objectives?
