Based on a 2017 survey from Financial Times, coaching skills were listed as the most difficult to recruit, and 76% of employers are seeking job candidates with coaching skills. To meet the needs of business today, training for coaching skills is a necessity. From small to large-scale organizations, training for managers is a top priority. Take Google for example: they invested in training their management team and after implementing coaching skills training, Google saw improvement in manager quality for 75% of their lowest-ranked managers. Listening skills and providing clear and direct feedback were among the coaching skills used in the training that helped managers improve their performance.
