A growing body of evidence shows that a coaching style of management produces higher levels of employee engagement, with consequent improvements in productivity, quality, staff retention and profitability. Evidence shows, too, that managers who coach rather than merely monitor compliance are better leaders because they enable those around them to grow in confidence and capability and so become better able to fulfill their own accountabilities. The techniques taught in this book are simple to understand and start using right away and will have a dramatic impact on managers’ effectiveness.
