Tip #2 "Prepare to listen"

Jean François Mathieu, Listening Culture Designer presents the Composer's Approach to Listening to people.  At the convergence of art and management he has devised a unique and intriguing technique for leaders to listen more deeply and effectively.

Why companies are training their managers to have coaching skills

Managers who coach, develop their team members’ capabilities, making them more independent.  By  using coaching techniques, they support their staff to learn quickly, find their own solutions and solve problems more effectively.  They save time and create a positive work environment.

Coaching skills, the fast lane to soft skills

If you’re not really sure about how to acquire the fuzzy soft skills, learn how to coach. You will be able to forge the right mindset and easily master the behaviors that are indicators of a high mastery of soft skills.

What’s different about a coaching conversation?

Coaching is helpful, because it allows people to think things out by themselves more clearly, to find solutions, set meaningful goals and achieve them. It is an energizing and empowering process that is beneficial for the employee, the leader and the company.  A leader coach does not always tell, instead they asks questions to open up new avenues of thought.
