In many cases, you cannot afford to fire and go on a search for a replacement. You feel stuck. You saw the potential leader in your midst, but now you’re feeling like you made a mistake. However, something told you that this was the right move to begin with. Many times, your gut was right. It’s just a case of learning how to manage and supervise. You see, these great employees have rarely to never been in a situation to lead in this capacity. Sure, she knows her job well, but is struggling to manage people, time, tasks, production, etc. I can help take that burden off of you. I assess what you expect and incorporate those expectations into my training and coaching. I’ve been successful in drawing out what you saw in the first place. Let me take the burden of mentoring off of you and let you take care of your tasks.
Here are some of the ways I can help you. Note that I am not a cookie-cutter type of coach. I don’t have some program that I am selling to everyone. There are some major fundamental areas that stay constant as I coach and train. But, I take what you have, marry it with what is expected and make your managers better.
My favorite avenue, and in my opinion, the most effective is one-to-one coaching. Getting with a person weekly/bi-weekly and looking into who he/she is and how he/she approaches the position helps me lead him/her to incorporate and apply tools and tactics to everyday work. Using real time scenarios and coaching someone through those is the most effective way of making shifts and drawing out potential.
Similar to one-to-one, coaching a group and using real time scenarios allows for us to build an effective team, a supportive environment, and use application successes and short-falls to adjust, train, and apply.
The combination of training and coaching:
One hour training sessions 3 times a month followed by 30 minute to one hour sessions of individual or group coaching bi-weekly. This allows an introduction to new information during each training session followed by applying and implementing what was presented into everyday work scenarios.
1 day and 2 day seminars:
Training seminars for participants to take techniques and tools back to the work place with them. These seminars are not only informational but experiential as well. Each seminar has time set aside to work through round-table exercises with teams of people from your company and/or with others from other companies. Seminars can be conducted exclusively for a single company or open to many.
