What difference would it make to you, the people you manage, your Members—and the people you serve—if you could:

  • Communicate performance expectations more effectively?
  • Improve your ability to deliver constructive feedback?
  • Increase accountability and raise the bar on performance through the management climate you set?
  • Integrate coaching into your daily management responsibilities so that you can engage and develop people more effectively?
  • Learn how to practice management coaching without leaving your office, and at an affordable price?

If these are outcomes you'd like to have as a manager, then
The Trainers Consortium is pleased to offer -

Manage for Performance—Coach for Development

Welcome to Management Coaching

"Being an effective manager is not easy. I always want my staff to feel respected and valued but also want to make sure that we are meeting the goals and expectations of our department. The lessons, assignments, group calls and one-on-one time from the Management Coaching team have given me many new tools to be a more effective leader. I truly believe the time that I carved out to complete this program was well worth the time and money."

Carrie Brainard, AmeriCorps Program Director, West Virginia Department of Health
