An important part of your role as a manager is to create an environment where your team can thrive. This happens when everyone is contributing at their highest levels towards organizational goals. Research shows that people and teams who participate more regularly in “check-ins” and coaching conversations (i.e. “feedback”) outperform their peers on key financial and talent measures, leading to team success. This type of nurturing environment involves developing relationships in which the manager can effectively lead and coach individuals to be highly effective in their roles. With leaders often investing a lot of time to conduct regular meetings with their direct reports, why not utilize this time more effectively through the use of productive management tools. Leaders can provide encouragement and direction to strengthen the manager-employee relationship and to unleash better performance.

Through this path, we will explore different tools to help managers in their journey to master coaching skills for increased team performance.
