Why study this course

Coaching and mentoring employees helps to boost productivity, create a healthier work environment, ensure smooth functioning of business processes and improve moral. As human resources are the key in any organisation, it is important to coach and mentor the less experienced employees appropriately to reduce attrition, improve staff retention and create a culture of continuous improvement.

You'll gain a deep understanding and the skills required to properly implement important techniques such as personal and professional goal setting, developing career options, overcoming personal obstacles, building trust, giving critical feedback, and more.
