To have a significant impact on your organisation’s performance, your managers need a coach-like leadership style and the ability to have sustained coaching conversations with their teams. However, today’s time-strapped managers and leaders often find themselves defaulting to an old-school management approach: tell rather than ask. But solving problems instead of helping people find their own solutions perpetuates bottlenecks and fire-fighting. And managers are continually finding themselves stuck with just too much stuff on their plate.
Theory, models and exhortations to “do more coaching” aren’t going to make a difference. We need to help managers and leaders develop the coaching skills, insights and support that will change their behaviour so that coaching becomes a habit — and a regular, useful part of their management repertoire.
Full day, deeper dive into coaching skills for the busy manager. We help managers, executives and leaders understand how and why they’re so quickly and easily tempted to jump in and be the ‘advice giver’ and the ‘problem solver’ — and the price that they (and the employees they’re managing) pay for this. With this new understanding, it becomes easier for them to disarm the “advice hair-trigger” so that managers can use their coaching skills when the occasion calls for them.
