Did you have a favorite coach when you were younger? Were they your favorite because of the way they led you and your team through successes and failures? How they gave encouraging feedback? The trusting relationship you had? A good manager and employee relationship should mimic the investment your favorite coach had in you and your team.

According to a 2018 Workplace Learning Report, 94 percent of employees would stay at a company longer if it invested in their career more. But your HR team probably doesn’t have the bandwidth to coach each employee. Turning your managers into coaches who can provide employees with support and give constructive feedback will help both individuals and the company succeed.

In this webcast, Tawni Reed of BambooHR and Libby Mullen from BizLibrary will explain the importance of developing coaching skills in your managers so you can retain your talent and lead your company to success.

They will discuss:

  • How to develop a coaching mindset in your managers and leaders
  • Why regular feedback is important for employee success
  • How frequent employee recognition helps solve common business challenges
  • The best times to give feedback and performance reviews
