5 Coaching Skills for Any Leader

[ Blackboard Fridays Ep. 87 ]
by Jacob Aldridge Published

Whether you're an entrepreneur, leader, or manager, there's a new set of skills that are critical for business success: you're now expected to be a Coach as well.

Sounds lovely, doesn't it. Just dive into your university or tradeschool notes where you mastered that course on "How to be a Coach", right? *Snort, Chuckle* So what's a modern leader to do?

[Side bar diversion. I do run a full 2-3 day program on 'Coaching Skills for Leaders'. So if you're genuinely interested, send me an email at j.aldridge@businessdepot.com.au to let me know and we might find there's enough interested people to run a course later this year.]

You need to start somewhere, and that somewhere is watching this week's video. Cut through the theory and straight into actionable skills - here are 5 Coaching Skills that any Leader can implement immediately.


Take 5 minutes each week to focus on your business instead of dealing with the demands of working in it.
