Neither a Leader, Nor a Follower: Understanding the Importance of Leadership Development Coaching in the Workplace

The corporate environment has changed substantially over the last decade. Companies are no longer just seeking candidates with good grades, college degrees and nice suits.

    It’s helpful to know that having employees work on leadership development could benefit the company as a whole as well as the employees. My friend and I run a small business together and want to help one of our employees be a manager. Giving him an opportunity to learn more skills could help us improve overall.
