In this module we focus on the manager as manager of individual employees in a team. You learn how to promote adequate job performance and how to develop the qualities of employees. We pay attention to what is the most desirable leadership style in your situation, given the team you are dealing with, the management philosophy of the organization and your own personality. You learn how to conduct different types of conversations. Make conscious choices for coaching, inspire, direct or intervene and switch between the different roles (leader, manager, coach) you have. You learn to deal with resistance from an employee. An important part is training coaching skills.
