It can be a challenge to know what kind of support your people need from you.
In our experience, managers who seek out support for their people through coaching improve communication and relationships not only on an individual level, but among their team. They experience fewer breakdowns between individuals and departments and see greater improvements in efficiency.
To help you know if coaching can be the right support for your people, here are 10 common workplace situations that can be supported by coaching.
1. An employee with the opportunity to be more productive and/or have less conflict with others.
2. A high-potential employee who, with development, could become a manager or director.
3. A sales person transitioning into a sales manager role.
4. A sales manager who is focused on supporting his or her team to get better results.
5. A high-potential senior leader who, with development, could become an executive.
6. A department or team leader focused on developing their direct reports or bringing together a new team.
7. A manager who would benefit from developing next level communication skills.
8. An executive who is focused on preparing for change.
9. An executive who wants to stay focused on goals and objectives in times of crisis.
10. An executive who values continuous development of their own leadership skill sets.
Through the coaching process, “coachees” gain new levels of awareness of themselves and their situation. With this new perspective, they are able to have better conversations, deepen relationships with their direct reports and peers, and ultimately achieve greater levels of satisfaction at work.
