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