The Project Coach: How to Stretch and Develop Others While Getting the Work Done

Description

Topics : Communication and Presentation Skills | Leadership Development | Influencing | Motivation

Business coaching has evolved from fad to fundamental. Having the ability to “coach and develop others” is a necessary skill for all project managers. However, with so much to do and so little guidance, how do project managers successfully stretch and develop others while getting the work done?

Successful coaching is based on asking rather than telling, on challenging rather than giving directions and by holding a person accountable for results.
