Everyday Coaching: Using Conversations to Strengthen Your Culture

Coaching is not just for coaches. When everybody within an organization learns and develops coaching skills, the group?s culture begins to change. The willingness to share insights and ideas becomes accepted and expected at all levels ? up, down and across. Through practical tips and examples, Everyday Coaching demonstrates the difference between conversations and true dialogue: the power of using the language of coaching to achieve expectations, personal growth and overall strategic success. With an easy-to-use coaching model, you may practice formally or informally giving feedback, making agreements and guiding behavior. Not everyone is a professional coach. But with Everyday Coaching, everyone may take the best of what coaching has to offer ? the dialogue, tools and mindset ? and leverage it to transform themselves and their organization.
