About

If you don’t know where you are going, any road will take you there. One of the most important roles of a manager is to ensure everyone knows the destination. 

The most effective managers set expectations and assess their employees’ performance against those expectations, and take a coaching approach to helping them get to the destination. That’s exactly what you’ll learn to do in this Setting Expectations and Assessing Performance Issues offered by Coursera in partnership with UC Davis!

You will explore how to collaboratively develop expectations with those you lead. When you encounter expectations that are not being met, you’ll learn how to use "Coaching Algebra" to determine the underlying issues that are impeding performance, and how to respond as a manger-coach.  

We look forward to you joining us as we explore these essential coaching topics!
