Conversations That Inspire: Coaching Learning, Leadership and Change

Provided by: Coursera

Coaching can inspire and motivate people to learn, change, and be effective leaders, among other roles in life. Although most attempts are “coaching for compliance” (coaching someone to your wishes or expectations), decades of behavioral and neuroscience research show us that “coaching with compassion” (coaching someone to their dreams and desires) is more effective.

Course Objectives:

  • In this course, we'll examine how effective coaching occurs, discovery of a person's hopes and dreams, and unleashing positive emotion in the coaching conversation. This course is about motivating others to learn and change. You will learn how to truly help others. And the techniques you learn will improve your relationships in all areas of your life.
