What You’ll Learn
Although being a leader of a team can be very rewarding, there are challenges in coaching to overcome to reach success. The challenges are often due to misunderstandings of expectations, the environment, and our overall relationship with the person. Recognizing these challenges is the first step to overcoming them and reaping the benefits of coaching for improved performance. Having a step-by-step process to improve performance can help mitigate these challenges.
Commitment is related to all the other success factors. To get commitment from employees, you must lead by example and demonstrate your willingness to adapt to and thrive in the working environment. To ensure your team has increased productivity levels, focus on measurable results, and track projects closely to maintain the lines of communication. Setting attainable performance standards is an important step in the process.
