If you want to be a great manager, it's important that your employees don't just see you as a boss. If your employees perceive you solely as a boss, that can set the stage for an often adversarial 'us versus them' team dynamic, which doesn't lead to the most productive or effective work environment.
While it's true that you are their boss, you'll be more effective if they also see you as a leader. And, for that to happen, they need to see you as a coach - not just any coach, but their coach. You need them to see you as someone who is committed to helping them be their best selves at work while also looking out for the best interests of the overall team.
Objectives of the Presentation
- Identifying key differences between the 'boss' mindset and that of a coach
- Do's and don'ts of coaching-focused communication and workplace relationship building
- Boss-like behaviors (to avoid!) that create barriers to coaching effectiveness
- How to provide performance feedback like a boss - and a coach!
- Demonstrating commitment to helping employees grow and develop to achieve their potential
- Growing as an effective leader through developing coaching skills
Why Should you Attend
If your job involves leading others, the implications are clear: the most important thing you can do each day is to help your team members experience progress at meaningful work. And, of course, the only way your team members will see you as a coach is if you function as one.
Attend this webinar and learn how to be a coach to your employees while also being their boss.
Also get practical, concrete strategies you can apply to develop an appropriate coach-employee relationship with those you are tasked with leading.
