Leadership is about relationships—between customers and employees, among employees, and between leaders and the followers they serve. Managers at all levels must focus on the day-to-day behaviors that reinforce trust and accountability.
Coaching is a key practice to perform without fail and with skill. Coaching conversations build a culture in which human beings thrive and achieve the goals of the organization.”
