Organizations have realized that traditional performance management systems are often not effective at motivating or engaging employees. They focus primarily on the past with ratings and rankings rather than development and preparing for the future. Studies show that to be their best, employees want a coach rather than a boss; someone who will provide on-going feedback and communication, job clarity, accountability and the opportunity to learn and grow. This class focuses on using a coaching model to conduct employee development discussions.
