with Jeb Bates, Executive Coach from ThoughtAction, LLC

“While there are many tools in a leader’s toolbox, coaching is the most effective in driving business results.” – Forrester Research, Inc. June 29, 2020

Whether you are managing your team remotely or in-person, stress levels are at an all-time high. Employees are looking for guidance and someone to coach them through these challenging times versus just managing them. However, coaching is a leadership competency that requires training, practice, and confidence.

Do you know what each of your employees’ core needs are and how to coach them in a way that drives performance and job satisfaction?

Leaders in organizations are always talking about employee engagement and how it relates to productivity, execution, and retention. However, most organizations miss the boat when it comes to engagement because they focus on the wrong things. It’s not about the Gallup results, benefits, nap pods, or free food. It’s about how well the employee’s core needs are met by their role, their organization, and their boss. If all three are not aligned, then dissatisfaction and disengagement are the result.

Mid-to-upper-level managers who want to know how to creatively coach and manage their teams and get the most from their people.
