HR Competencies

  • Business Acumen
  • Consultation Objective


Whether managers are trying to help employees sharpen their skills, develop themselves toward future goals, or rebound after derailing, employees greatly benefit from being coached. In this blended-learning class, we explore supervision from the mind-set of a coach; where a partnership-supportive of employee development is the focus. We build the critical coaching skills necessary to enhance that partnership, and give managers the tools and confidence needed to embrace the coaching role successfully. We navigate through a coaching model which gives managers a solid framework for holding various types of coaching conversations, including the preparation, implementation, and follow-up needed to support the coaching partnership.

This class includes a series of online self-directed learning modules, assignments, and video demonstrations that serve as pre-work for two half-day in-class training sessions. Participants must enroll a minimum of two weeks prior to the first training session so they can complete the online coursework.
