Taking a coaching approach to your management can make a huge difference to the results you will experience from your team. The fact that your stress levels and theirs are likely to lower dramatically, is just one of the bonuses. Some other bonuses you can expect to experience are:
- A deeper level of engagement on the part of all team members
- Greater desire for autonomy and self-assessment
- Fewer personality challenges
- Burgeoning initiative and innnovation
Does it all sound too good to be true?
What Do You Have to Do to Get These Types of Results?
Learn to coach your people, rather than attempt to manage them.
Ross Perot pretty well nailed the point when he said, "You can manage inventory, you can manage things, but you must lead people if you want to tap their full potential."
So, how do you lead them in this era?
Coaching is the most effective leadership approach we've discovered, and yet it's an old, old secret at best.
Lao Tzu, speaking more than 2,500 years ago said, "Of the best rulers, the people only know that they exist. The next best they love and praise; the next they fear; and the next they revile. When they do not command the people's faith, some will lose faith in them, and then they resort to oaths! But of the best when their task is accomplished, their work done, their people all remark, 'We have done it ourselves.'"
