Goals are important tools for managers as they provide common direction for team members, facilitating planning, and provide a strong motivator for team success.

Introducing: Unleash Your Leadership Potential - a leadership program that Entelechy has been working on since 1992, customizing the program for scores of companies and training thousands of leaders.

Entelechy makes clear distinctions among feedback, coaching, and difficult conversations in our training. For good reason.

This issue of our newsletter describes those distinctions and when each conversation should be used.
