    May 26, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

    Sponsored by- Training Magazine Network Have you heard these urgent requests before? “Can you make it quick, please?” “Can you tell me how I can improve immediately?” “Will you let me know instantly if I am doing a good job or if I am failing?” The mode and tone of today’s workers and team members sound urgent, almost always needing immediate attention. What happens when we miss the opportunity to provide coaching and feedback because of long awaited and scheduled performance evaluation or weekly meetings? The urgency of the need may have passed, that the value of the coaching and feedback may be diminished. How do you avoid this from happening?

However, ask yourself, “What will it cost in time or money if my employees don’t have a clear view of goals, lack critical skills, or are encountering problems that impede progress?” Join Dan Rockwell as he explains the differences between coaching-managers and traditional managers and offers advice on how to use a coaching approach to energize and engage your staff.
