As a manager, you may find yourself being encouraged to constantly improve employee performance through effective coaching, but you may not have the time—or the knowledge—to do it successfully. Brian Emerson and Anne Loehr have spent years showing some of the country’s top companies how to develop their most promising employees. This concise guide for busy managers gives you the tools you need to coach your people, and yourself, through any work situation. A Managers Guide to Coaching takes you through the entire coaching process from discovery, through clarifying wants, problem solving, defining action, and developing accountability.
