Over the many years I’ve served as a human resource professional, I’ve noticed the same challenge for many leaders: They aren’t close to their coaching sources when they need them most. Tips from a book or website might come in handy while in the office, but they don’t help you in the barn. So, we have prepared a quick-hit guide for you to download and print to keep with you. Remember, you’re naturally creative and resourceful—you can do this.
Here’s a summary of the guide, or download the pocket guide.
