Culture | How to be a Great Coach
Culture is not so easily defined. We think about culture as the mix of ingredients to get a recipe right. How to be a great coach with Learoy Tonight will provide you with the skills and knowledge to understand what drives culture and what you can do to create and foster the one that’s right for you.
Culture needs to be constantly supported and massaged to ensure it stays on the right path. Just like adding a little extra spice or giving the pot a little more time to simmer before serving, the extra work you put into your mix can make all the difference.
Coaching and giving feedback are two tools that you can use to maintain and drive your culture. It’s all about driving high performance. Sometimes this means improving their technique, and at other times, it means motivating them to keep their head in the game. While it’s all about them – their success becomes yours too, as you work together to elevate them to levels they didn’t even know they had in them.
Each lecture in this course has been carefully selected for you to explore how to implement relevant and meaningful strategies to support you as a leader and culture driver now and in the future.
This course will provide you with many tips and tricks you can utilize inside and out of your workplace, it will encourage and motivate you to really understand and support the environment you’re trying to create.
