Bley will present this topic in more depth in a half-day course Tuesday, Feb. 19, as part of the Brown and Gold Series sponsored by WMU's Training and Development Office.

Good coaching, she says, makes everyone in an organization more effective. By applying coaching skills in the workplace, employees can motivate, guide and support one another to achieve top performance.
