Developing and Coaching Others – Team Leader

Half-day course | Facilitator: PivotU Facilitator

An organization can tell employees that they are responsible for their own growth and development, but many employees will not or cannot achieve this on their own. They need motivation, support and coaching from their supervisors, team leaders and managers. Without this, they’ll have a difficult time developing their talents on their own. Research shows the support and effective involvement of leaders is the single most important factor in determining whether that the employee learns in a classroom transfers into behavior change on the job. Leaders who are actively involved in the growth and development of their team members encourage behavior change and improved performance. This takes leaders who: • Continuously coach and support the development of their employees • Encourage learners before, during and after each element in a learning process • Effectively handle “coaching moments” so employees learn to teach themselves
