Help your employees help themselves.

As a manager in today’s business world, you can’t just tell your direct reports what to do: You need to help them make their own decisions, enable them to solve tough problems, and actively develop their skills on the job.

Whether you have a star on your team who’s eager to advance, an underperformer who’s dragging the group down, or a steady contributor who feels bored and neglected, you need to coach them: Help shape their goals—and support their efforts to achieve them.

In the HBR Guide to Coaching Employees you’ll learn how to:

  • Create realistic but inspiring plans for growth
  • Ask the right questions to engage your employees in the development process
  • Give them room to grapple with problems and discover solutions
  • Allow them to make the most of their expertise while compelling them to stretch and grow
  • Give them feedback they’ll actually apply
  • Balance coaching with the rest of your workload

Arm yourself with the advice you need to succeed on the job, from a source you trust. Packed with how-to essentials from leading experts, the HBR Guides provide smart answers to your most pressing work challenges.
