If coaching is indeed the essence of everything positive about learning and development, then knowing where and when to apply it is essential to maximizing its positive impact. The Coaching Connection puts it all into context: the coach, the individual being coached, and the sponsoring organization. This essential guidebook is for you if you’re seeking to improve your people…and your bottom line results.

Does your company need a cohesive, systematic, and strategic approach to coaching? Here are the most popular reasons for coaching:

• Onboard a new staff member

• Addressing specific performance and productivity issues

• Sharpening the skills of high-potential candidates considered for promotion

• Transitioning employees to new domestic or international assignments

• Aiding people in dealing with stress and anxiety on the job

• Assisting executives in assuming their roles in the big-picture strategy

• Helping individuals improve their attitude

If any of these resonate within your organization, you’ll find methods, solutions, and approaches to deal with them in The Coaching Connection.
