As a manager, effective conversations are key to building relationships with your direct reports and can enhance their growth and success, encourage them to stay and help them navigate life events such as a chronic illness.

Explore these examples of conversations you may have as a manager. Use the strategies, sample questions, and tips to enhance your effectiveness in the “moments that matter” to employees.

Many of these conversations reference a simple and flexible coaching method that will strengthen your ability to clarify the topic, explore the options, and commit to action(s). Becoming familiar with the mindset, skills, and conversation flow can increase your skills, confidence, and impact as a coach.
