    The Art and Power of Coaching

    Every leader has the opportunity to be a coach. However many leaders are not skilled at coaching. Effective coaching requires skill and technique. The good news is that the art of coaching is built upon a foundation of two skills we all use every day: listening and asking questions. The power comes from honing those two skills. In this presentation, we will focus on both the art and power of coaching through dialogue and practice.
