In this free webinar we will demystify what coaches do, how coaching sessions work, and who would benefit most from working with an executive coach. Further, we will address a number of common myths surrounding coaching. With the help of Steve Titus, you will have the opportunity to reflect on how a coach could plug into your own work life. Whether you are new to your role, have expanded responsibilities, want to lead differently, or are leading a change effort, coaching is a powerful tool to help you succeed.
