The Power of Coaching

[Click here for your free subscription to "Boosting Employee Morale]

If you look at the world's greatest athletes, they all have one common denominator, a skilled and powerful coach. 

When looking at the top pop stars, you can be sure they did not reach stardom all by themselves.  Both the athlete and pop star have worked with various coaches who have provided them with appropriate guidance and pushed them in the right direction to achieve success.

The great athlete or talented pop star is not very different from the every day employee in important respects.  To create a sense of success and boost morale, employees need insightful and concerned coaches to support them in their daily work decisions. 

A good employer recognizes the value of being a great coach and knows that through good communication, listening, providing appropriate tools, and ongoing encouragement, incredible things can happen.

If you are a supervisor or manager, be careful with permitting failure as a method of teaching.  You can bet that all but the newest employees have a host of "lessons learned" because of mistakes made in the past. 

Therefore, if you notice an employee struggling or veering off in the wrong direction, you may be in an excellent position to coach that employee, helping him or her to get back on the path to solid performance. 

With proper coaching, employees can be led to greater successes, all of which reflect well on their coach and manager.
