I found it very interesting and impactful. The evidence supporting the value of coaching to organizations overall was impressive and I liked how the skills section was distilled into some key takeaways that are easy to remember and take action. I would have liked more on the skills, but understand that was not the primary focus of this presentation.

While there was some good information, I felt that the actual portion of the class devoted to being a better coach was too small in comparison to the other information. Also, the teacher was pretty dry and without any interesting stories or material. I had to keep stopping and restarting the video to keep listening.

An excellent course that explains the difference between managing and coaching. It describes how good coaching skills build a performance-enhancing adaptive culture, inspires employee accountability and engagement, and enhances your own impact as a Leader.

Pace could've been a bit quicker, but the concepts presented were quite useful. Would like to see a few more examples of these concepts in action. Repeated focus on balance of EQ vs IQ was so key to the overall of value this course.

This course pulled me right in to the subject matter from the beginning. It was highly engaging and easy to listen to; plain, succinct and insightful. Very positive. I'm looking forward to applying what I learned.

I really enjoyed the final section that included tips for how to be a better coach. I would have liked more of the course dedicated to that section and less time devoted the the reasons why coaching is important.

Manu good points on HOW to coach well but too much time spent explaining WHY to be a good coach. Chose course so had already bought into WHY. Needed HOW. That said, the objectives were achieved as were stated.

Very good course. A little slow in proving the point for being a good coach but overall well presented. Good use of slides, good pace, well spoken. I would listen to some parts of this course twice.

VALUABLE information for both coaches and those being coached. This can be reciprocal information and provide a more open understanding of our leaders and their approach.

Good background material on the potential of coaching. Would have liked some specific examples of the "experiential" coaching techniques recommended by the instructor.

The instructor does not give much examples that can relate in life. This course is entirely to enlighten how Coaching differentiates from Managing and Supervising.

I think that he gave a good presentation. He could have been a little more up beat in his presentation. It is helpful for those who manage employees.

This course was very basic. I only would recommend it if someone has never had any training on coaching or performance management.

Great information and insights on a topic that doesn't seem to be discussed or focused on in many organizations.

Enjoyed to course. Was expecting more tips on coaching and not a course on why coaching is important.

I thought the course was going to be more about how to coach instead of selling me on doing it.
