Learn to Coach: Tech Managers & Teams
Cayuse

Learn to Coach: Tech Managers & Teams is an immersive workshop that breaks down the fundamentals of coaching for managers in startup and technical environments. Over the course of the morning, we'll learn the elements of effective coaching and have time to practice, too!

This isn't your average coaching conversation - it's hands-on, no slides, and really fun (we promise - you get to build things, make stuff, and break stuff!) It's also not a leadership development class! This workshop is about actionable, real-world techniques that you can apply in your daily work immediately.

This course is designed for new and mid-level managers who have teams of 1+ people. It can also be a great tool for HR and people managers who are looking to add coaching skills to their toolboxes.
