Why did someone decide to make you a manager, or a lead?

Was it because you were smart? Good at your job? Because you always seemed to have the answer? Now that you’ve found yourself in charge, does it feel daunting to have to solve all the problems your team members bring to you?

The world’s best leaders seem to have one thing in common, and it has nothing to do with their intellect or their broad experience. In this short workshop, we’ll discuss how a singular coaching skill can help you level up as a leader and empower your teammates to solve their problems independently and creatively.

Personal reflection

After watching the talk, take a few minutes to think about the following:

  2. Where does that question fall in the SOON funnel (Success, Options, Obstacles, and Next Steps)?
