Jack Welsh, renowned CEO of General Electric once said, "When you become a leader, success is all about growing other that at least 50% of your time should be spent teaching and coaching others." How to do this entails more than telling people how to do their jobs. It means leading them to find their own solutions - solutions they can embrace and make their own.
Why should you Attend
After hiring the right people, coaching people to improve their performance can be the most daunting responsibility for most managers and supervisors.
Here are some questions to consider:
- Do you ever wonder why some people you are coaching seem to soak up your advice and thrive on it while others simply don’t get it?
- Do some of your folks seem to resist when you give directions?
- Are there times when you wish people would use their heads and not come running to you every time they run into a problem?
- Do you lose sleep worrying if your subordinates are managing as you would like them to?
- Would the people who work for you say you are a micro-manager?
