A tested approach to developing top performers in business Unlike coaching books that focus on performance problems, The Coaching Manager Second Edition presents a developmental coaching methodology that managers can use to guide employees to achieve higher levels of skill, experience greater engagement with organizations, and promote personal development. Clearly written, without jargon, specific coaching techniques are illustrated through short case studies and self-assessment exercises that help readers apply the principles in their own lives. New and Hallmark features of the Second Edition - New material and cases demonstrate how developmental coaching can be integrated with goal setting and selection to create an integrated talent management process that is appropriate at all levels of organizations. - Based on the experience of practicing managers, the text draws on research, teaching, and consulting contacts with more than 4,000 leaders who employ coaching in various business disciplines. - Real-world examples and mini-case illuminate key points?almost like giving readers a ?personal coach? throughout the book. - Methods are presented for developing good employees and making them great, rather than spending time rehabilitating problem employees. - A coacing model solidly grounded in adult learning theory helps readers reflect on their strengths and weaknesses.
