Event Title: Learning 2016 Session: Coaching in a Creative Environment
Top 3 things learned:
A. Leadership development courses don't create expert coaches, but they can
plant the seed for leaders to be more conscientious about their
B. Coaching in a creative environment requires a more prescriptive approach:
leaders want the "how to," not the "what if."
C. Managers need in-class practice and practical, just-in-time coaching tools
How to implement: This model of coaching is not all that different from other
models I've seen. The main idea is to make the process concrete, to give a
framework that makes it easier for managers to follow, and then to require
them to practice during training using workplace scenarios.
