5 Coaching Steps that Bring Out the Best in People
Unfortunately, few managers know the coaching steps to follow to become an outstanding coach. So, they do not coach well. Why? Because it is not a priority. Of course, you know that being an employee. Most people have experienced the lack of coaching. In contrast, Servant Leaders do an excellent job of coaching because they put people first. This leadership training video will review five key coaching steps to help you accomplish that while achieving outstanding results, too.
Managers fail at coaching because either they do not know how to do it, or they do not care to learn. Those who do not care about their employees are bad bosses and should do something else. All managers that care must to learn to coach effectively if they want to succeed in their roles. If they do, they will learn how to tap the true potential of their teams. Coaching is for all employees and will raise the performance of anyone.
The biggest objection that managers have is-“I do not have time to coach.” I believe, if that is the case, the person does not have time to be a manager either. All Olympic athletes have coaches, and they are the elite in their sport.
Why don’t managers coach employees? First, the issue involves a value of believing that employees are partners and not “paid help.” Second, it is a matter of importance. And third, they have not been training in appropriate coaching steps. Traditional managers focus on profit. Servant Leaders focus on people. If the team wins the managers wins. When you help others succeed, you succeed. Most importantly, consider that Olympic athletes receive intense training and coaching win at the highest level. Coaching done well, improves performance: productivity, service, quality, innovation, and sales.
