What happens when leaders act less authoritarian and more coach-like?

What does it look like for a leader to act like a coach?

And why does it matter?

Let’s address all these questions in this week’s episode. Coaching is an incredibly powerful developmental tool, and just one of our many available tools in our toolbox as a leader. But it is also one of the most nuanced and hardest leadership approaches to put into action. So, join us for this episode to explore what coaching leadership is, why it matters, and specific strategies we can put into action today to get started.

We also share two example conversations between a boss and employee with the boss taking a coaching-style approach to help us better understand what it looks, sounds, and feels like.

So, check out this episode to learn how to be more coach-like in how we lead. We know it will equip you to lead and develop others more intentionally.
