Global Provider of Leadership Development, Team Effectiveness and Employee Engagement Solutions
Here’s an example of becoming a leader coach:
“I used to spend too much time solving problems for my team members. I was in fire drill mode, frustrated from having the same conversations over and over again. Once I adopted a coaching mindset and applied coaching skills that all changed. I now empower team members, trust their potential, and I have been pleasantly surprised how much we have all improved. I have more time to think and to be strategic about our business.”
Many leaders find they are doing more of the work than they should and solving problems for their team members, causing greater reliance on the manager. Once leaders learn how to be great coaches and are empowered to allow team members to solve problems themselves, they speed up execution and help their team members grow. According to Bersin & Assoc. research (Deloitte), when analyzing more than 20 talent management strategies, coaching came out number one as most highly correlated with impact.
Very few leaders, however, naturally know how to coach, so you need to inspire and teach them in a way that’s appealing and productive for them to apply the skills at work.
