You Can’t Push an Elephant Up a Hill: Why Coaching is Critical to Employee Success

Imagine trying to push a 12,000 pound elephant up a hill. It sounds impossible and it surely doesn’t sound like fun! However, that’s exactly what you’ll be doing if you don’t start consistently coaching ALL your employees! To stay at the top of the hill and consistently give you peak performance, employees need to know where they stand and that EVERYTHING they do matters to you and to your organization! In this fun and interactive presentation, Communication Expert, Speaker, and Author, Amy Castro, MA, CSP, will share the rationale behind regular coaching as well as specific tips and techniques for coaching your employees’ successes and coaching them when their performance doesn’t meet the mark.
