Coaching Conversations (Coursera)

Taught by:

By the end of this course, you will be able to demonstrate appropriate and effective strategies when engaging in coaching conversations with those that you lead. By exploring and analyzing common coaching scenarios that are acted out in this course, you will have a great sense of what works well and not so well during such a conversation.

The final assignment is all about actually having a coaching conversation with another person where you can apply everything you've learned in this course (and throughout the Coaching Skills for Managers specialization). After going through the course materials and completing the assessments, you will be able to have effective one-on one-coaching meetings with those you manage and deepen your understanding of the essential practice of coaching conversations.

Coaching Conversations is course 4 of 5 in the Coaching Skills for Managers Specialization.

In this Specialization, you will learn the essential skills to coach people for improved performance. You will learn from Executive Coach and UC Davis Instructor Kris Plachy, who has created and transformed dozens of teams through coaching. She will share best practices, research, tools and models for coaching effectively. You will learn how effective managers use coaching to establish clear expectations and accountability, how to assess performance, and how to conduct coaching conversations that build awareness and get results. In the capstone course, you will apply insights about management and coaching to develop your own coaching practice and tools.
