Podcast: Coach Better
April 6, 2022
"In this #coachbetter episode, Kim chats with Jennifer Abrams, author of (among many others) Having Hard Conversations, Swimming in the Deep End, and Stretching Your Learning Edges: Growing (Up) at Work! Kim and Jennifer talk about the intersection of coaching and leadership and in particular the power of clarifying conversations. As coaches, and leaders, these conversations are not always easy, but their importance can not be undervalued. If you’re looking for strategies to manage these kinds of clarifying conversations in your role, this episode is for you! Jennifer is also featured in our Women Who Lead Certificate Program, and this conversation is like a window into one of the modules within the program – “Handling Difficult Conversations”.
Whether you’re already a coach, or just getting started, the Coach Better Podcast is passionate about helping you take that next step in your coaching journey by sharing thoughtful professional conversations about coaching and learning with experts from around the world.
