What you will learn:

The coaching approach to people management is a skill and an art. In this Elective, I unpack how a coaching approach is different from mentoring, traditional management or consulting, as well as the vast benefits of coaching In general. I teach relevant coaching techniques including appreciative inquiry that are applicable for great people management. I also offer strategies to help you get in the right 'head' and 'heart' space to have conversations with the level of neutrality and curiosity that are essential for coaching. I cover required elements of coaching conversations that allow them to be constructive, leaving your direct reports empowered to solve their own problems. This knowledge is then cemented through role-play practice with realistic scenarios and lots of feedback.
