Register with Gail at the Roseburg Area Chamber of Commerce, 541-672-2648, ext. 22. Many managers are promoted on their subject matter expertise. Most are never taught or mentored on how to coach others to reach their full potential in the workplace. Although coaching is often seen as a tool for disciplinary actions; it can become the “delivery channel” through which employee connections and development take place. This session will cover the crucial steps required to guide others toward engagement, accountability, and reaching strategic goals.
