The Duke Corporate Education team has produced a compact guide that defines coaching in the workplace and explains how your organization can begin to implement it. getAbstract recommends this guide to anyone responsible for ensuring that other people produce results. Potential coaches include corporate managers and leaders at all levels, entrepreneurs, small business owners, and nonprofit managers and volunteers. This short manual is also valuable to anyone who is responsible for teaching, developing, counseling or guiding others, such as teachers, counselors and even parents.
In this summary, you will learn
- How coaching differs from mentoring, evaluating or providing feedback;
- How to use coaching to transform your workplace; and
- How coaches can use the four "GAPS" principles: "goal setting, assessment, planning and support."
