When is it right to invest in your people?

When is it right to invest in your people?

Coach is the third part of your role!

Coach is the third part of your role!

Being a coach to your team provides a number of things the other roles do not. In this role you help your people find their own answers - this takes you out of the know it all or go to person role (scary?).  When your people find their own answers they generate a higher level of trust in themselves - they grow. As they grow they develop a depth and a strength of character that allows them to reach further and out perform their own past best outcomes.
