Coaching creates a safe space to work through problems or devise a plan, and can often resolve a specific situation in one or two sessions. When skills improvement is the goal, coaching on a regular basis over a period of time can be effective.
TYPICAL COACHING SCENARIOS:
- Coaching supervisors one on one to address problems, develop skills and improve effectiveness.
- Training a new supervisor to understand their role, like being directive without being bossy.
- Supporting an experienced manager to be a better supervisor.
- Working with a manager whose interpersonal dynamics are inhibiting his/her advancement.
- Coaching a manager who has done something inappropriate to help him/her understand the situation and change their behavior.
- Leading a work group to develop teamwork, make agreements and build a collaborative culture.
- Facilitating a group of supervisors to develop skills and build a peer-coaching cohort.
