About

This new version of Can You Spare a Moment? with John Cleese focuses on developing counseling skills for managers.

Enable managers to understand the techniques of handling delicate situations and encouraging staff to overcome problems proactively.

Show managers and team leaders that even the most delicate situation can be overcome when dealt with using the appropriate counseling techniques.

Can You Spare a Momentintroduces the four stages of a structured approach to counseling:

  • Setting up the interview
  • Getting people talking by using open questions
  • Helping them think through their problem
