Host: Association for Talent Development
By: Alex Moore, Junior Research Analyst and Sandi Maxey, Senior Vice President, Manager, Sandy Spring Bank

Organizations that expect their managers to be coaches see increased employee performance and a stronger organizational culture. According to survey respondents in Managers as Coaches: Boosting Employee and Organizational Performance, 90 percent of organizations expect at least some of their managers to coach their direct reports and 75 percent expect all of their managers to do so. Organizations that expected their managers to coach all of their direct reports were significantly more likely to be high-performing companies.

Drawing on figures and data from the research, this webcast will highlight best practices organizations can use to cultivate managers who practice coaching with their direct reports. It will examine the key coaching skills managers need, training managers as coaches, and top barriers to effective coaching.
