You know how coaching is now an essential leadership and management skill? It drives engagement, productivity and impact. But you know how most managers and leaders still aren't very good at coaching? They keep resorting back to giving advice, telling people what to do and providing solutions. And you know how frustrating it is that even when you send them to some sort of training on coaching, those new insights almost never translate to actual behavior change?
So wouldn't it be great if there was a practical way busy managers could coach in 10 minutes or less, and that coaching became an everyday way of working? Well that's what we do at Box of Crayons. We give busy managers and leaders the practical tools so they can coach in 10 minutes or less. Our award-winning programs are used by organizations around the world, from AstraZeneca to Xerox. Whether you're reimagining your performance appraisal process, looking to increase employee engagement, or needing to navigate change, giving your busy managers practical coaching skills lays a foundation for success.
