The Coach’s Dilemma with Scott Wimer

Actually, coaches don’t just have one dilemma. They have are many.

For example:

> How to coach someone who may not have the necessary skills or motivation

What to do when you don’t understand the technical aspects of the person’s job or what they need to learn

> How to help potential clients understand the value of coaching

> What to do when the boss requests coaching, and after you get started, you discover they have a hidden agenda

> How to handle fundamental disagreements you have with the person you’re coaching

Bring your coaching challenges and questions!  We will have a working session to help you develop and refine your coaching skills.  And, we will look at how to handle some of the trickier coaching dilemmas.
