Organizations nowadays are realizing the power of coaching, and managers are having to develop new skills rapidly in order to make use of coaching techniques at work. But being a coach isn't the same as being a teacher. Successful coaches help to improve performance by drawing out and developing key strengths; they question and guide; they help people to focus and achieve more. Yet, despite the fact that coaching is now seen as an essential technique to develop, some managers can find the shift to a coaching style of management difficult to achieve. Instant Coaching will quickly improve your ability to coach someone to work, provide a good grounding in the key skills you need to develop and boost your confidence. With practical advice, proven tips and with a set of 69 easy-to-use activities, this book will help to: coach both individuals and groups; assess an individual's current performance; develop a coaching plan; keep track of whether your coaching is having the right effect; learn how to motivate and communicate effectively.
