Coaching Skills for Leaders and Managers

Coaching plays a huge role in learning organizations. The ability to facilitate professional development in others and improve their performance is important not just to the bottom line, but to people’s well-being and much longer-term organizational health.

Many companies now know this, it’s true. Smaller businesses, as well as multinationals, are now investing in developing their leaders as coaches, hoping to develop internal talent. But with around 58% of managers reporting no formal training for their roles, how much does the average leader really know about coaching?
