Coaching, Mentoring, and Building Virtual & Traditional Teams (UT-Pro-CM&BV)

Course Description

Coaching and Mentoring are essential skills that can benefit both you and your organization. The organization’s success can depend on how well team members operate together and as individuals and how well they are positioned to make independent decisions on behalf of their organization. Being a coach involves being able to draw experience from several disciplines. Coaching is based on a partnership that involves giving both support and challenging opportunities to employees. The role of the coach is to facilitate the full expression of individuals through growth and change. Teams are an important building block of successful organizations. Whether the focus is on service, quality, cost, value, speed, efficiency, performance, or other similar goals, teams are the basic unit that supports most organizations. The structure of teams continues to change to adapt to changes in technology, markets, and the necessities and possibilities of remote work. Transformative Leaders facilitate growth and change by learning the unique strengths and challenges of team members to better focus effort on achieving a shared vision; inspiring change more than directing it.
