Coaching Skills for Managers

Traditional management styles provide a rigid structure of controlling and tasking employees. Often the additional value that can be added to any task by the employee is missed and the quality of the outcome is largely determined by the manager, rather than the employee.

Coaching employees rather than using more traditional management techniques helps empower and enable individuals or teams to take the action they need to complete tasks to the best of their ability. Coaching enables people to take accountability for themselves, work better together and effectively share ability to produce synergy. It helps morale, improves productivity and supports personal development.
