Host: Association for Talent Development
By: Michael Bungay Stanier, Founder and Senior Partner, Box of Crayons

You know that coaching is a foundational skill for all managers and leaders. It drives engagement, focus, and resilience. It allows managers and their teams to do more great work: work that has impact and work that has meaning. But for most of us, it's proved harder than expected to get our managers to coach more often and more effectively. The biggest barrier? Not a lack of skill, but a lack of time. In fact, if managers can't coach in 10 minutes or less, they simply don't have the time to coach. In this session you will see how managers can coach in 10 minutes or less. You'll gain insights and skills that have proved useful to more than 10,000 other managers and leaders like you. If you want to make coaching work more effectively in your organization, this session is for you.

Application on the Job:
Understand and avoid the three trickiest barriers to everyday coaching at work.
Practice the opening question that most quickly kick-starts a coaching conversation.
Understand how "being lazy" is one of the unexpected secrets to being an effective coach at work and what that actually means.
