Popular culture can lead us to conclude that leaders run around giving orders all the time. While there are times and places where this is appropriate, most of the time it's not. The antidote to many of these myths lies in learning to become the kind of leader who develops their team members to be more capable and perform at ever-increasing levels of impact.

By coaching employees you can more easily develop your employees, while also countering any of your own tendencies to micromanage.

The 3 myths addressed here, which coaching can address, include:

  • Good leaders always know the answer

  • Good leaders have a "style"

  • Coaching someone means giving up control
  • Get your journal out! Turn this course into a personal reflection journey!
