Would you like to help your team members become more effective, and enjoy their work and personal lives more? Daniel Harkavy teaches you how to do just that by becoming an effective coaching leader. The key to his method is modeling the qualities and behaviors you want to instill in others. To be a coaching leader (and not a mere manager), you need conviction, courage and honesty. By embracing listening and learning, and considering what matters in your life, you can successfully coach people to progress by helping them define their own “Core Four” levels. People who develop a life plan and a business vision, and who manage their priorities, can see how their work contributes to their happiness and sense of purpose. Then, based on their vision statements, they can set clear, purposeful goals that are specific enough to be operational. getAbstract applauds Harkavy’s systematic approach to coaching employees and ultimately adding value to your business.

In this summary, you will learn

  • How to identify which kind of leader you are;
  • What a “coaching leader” is; and
  • Why you should use the Core Four coaching model.
