Coach WIth Courage

Coaching with courage means asking the right questions, of the right people, at the right time, in the right manner. Manage conversations by anticipating problems, taking risks and providing quality feedback.

We all know that coaching will help our employees. We all recognize the benefits of providing feedback and supporting change.

Then, why is it often something we avoid?
