A great deal of attention has been given to helping managers acquire better coaching skills. Organizations have earnestly sought to create a feedback-rich, coaching culture. However, are we forgetting or ignoring an important element of success in this endeavor?

The success of coaching hinges on the behavior of two people—not just one. Our research clearly shows that leaders who are resistant to, or uncomfortable with being coached are less likely to succeed. The quality of being coachable seems extremely important early in one’s career. This webinar will answer the questions:

  • What can and should be done for those who are the recipients of coaching?
  • What behaviors can be easily identified and practiced by virtually every leader to enhance their coachability?

Join Jack and Joe and special guest Kevin Wilde, Executive Leadership Fellow, Carlson School of Management, as they reveal the exciting findings of this recent study!
