I heard something earlier this week, that set me off a bit, where people were concerned that others knew they were being coached. And that they might be perceived poorly for doing so. That there must be something wrong! Wow!! That is so the opposite of the power of coaching.
Last week I wrote about when managers are inconsistent and the impact it can have on their people like reducing effectiveness, creating misunderstandings, creating worry, stress and a lack of safety about their job. As requested, here are some thoughts on being consistent and why you might want to make a shift in how consistent you are being.
I’ve come across a number of examples of young and small companies lately and had discussions with them about when is it right to start developing their teams. And by that I mean when is it right to put money into developing people to improve performance and the way they work together to drive different, better or more results.
