Coaching and Managing Differences

Effective coaching and management skills are essential in today’s fast-paced world of business, where differences between employees, management, and clients continually arise and lead to misunderstandings and motivation issues, many of which could be prevented. Designed for managers who wish to improve their leadership style and for mid-level HR professionals, this course highlights the differences between coaching and managing and focuses on the skills necessary to bring a coach-approach to motivating and managing in business. Develop or strengthen your coaching style by recognizing your personal leadership style, as well as your strengths and weaknesses. Explore successful coaching dialogue, the core coaching competencies as outlined by the International Coach Federation, and take part in coaching sessions. Create a coaching plan that can be used during professional coaching sessions. In class, work closely with faculty—both one on one and in small groups—to reinforce learned principles and guidelines.
