Manager as Coach
Why develop coaching skills as a manager?
It’s a fair enough question. We’re told all the time that coaching skills are a must have set of skills for the modern leader. Indeed, all the top business schools, from Wharton to Insead, now include modules on coaching on their MBA programmes. And they know a thing or two about leadership and management.
You could just tell your direct reports or team what to do and it would probably get done. Possibly to quite a good standard. But when you coach your direct reports or team, you help them learn and develop new skills. This improves their performance in the short term whilst building their capability to perform in the long term. By repeating this approach, you create a more capable, higher performing workforce that is more engaged. They feel empowered to take responsibility and are more productive as a result.
