Coaching Skills for Managers

Courtyard by Marriott Madison East/ 2502 Crossroads Dr. / Madison, WI 53718 /8:30am – 3:30pm

On-Purpose Coaching Techniques for Meaningful Results  Coaching is a dialog approach that prompts the employee to develop critical thinking skills.  You can’t just flip a switch and be an effective coach.  You need a process, a framework and plenty of practice.  We teach you the WDEP method for coaching.  It is easy to remember and gives you a path to follow for effective coaching conversations.


W= Wanting “Tell me what you want to have happen”

D= Doing “What have you considered doing to get what you want?”

E= Evaluate “What is the likelihood you can have what you want?”

P= Plan “What is your plan to get what you want?”

The manager that wants to learn how to coach will realize they need to encourage the employee to problem-solve and self-evaluate.  The reward is a more self-directed worker.

Managers who develop strong coaching skills inspire and encourage employees in the workplace in a way that brings out the best in others.  Are you the one expected to address behavior issues in the workplace, and often feel like you are not getting anywhere when you do?  Is part of your job to learn how to tactfully have difficult or dreaded conversations with others from time to time?
