Coaching can be described as instructing, directing, or prompting the movements of employees toward specific goals and is becoming a standard in today’s companies. Coaching also ensures the transfer of knowledge and application of skills when employees return to their jobs after completing training. The coaching process is therefore an important aspect of reinforcing training programs.


The participant will learn: (1) to prepare an employee for coaching, (2) to explain the goals and objectives of the workplace shared by the supervisor and employee, (3) to apply coaching skills by facilitating practice, (4) to create a positive atmosphere, (5) to have employees explain their perceptions of the goals, and (6) to follow up and follow through on the coaching process.
