Why manager led coaching isn’t working particularly well in organisations and what’s the alternative? – 10 minute coaching for the busy manager.
The stats tell the story, Blessing White ran a study highlighting:
73% of managers self identified they had some sort of coaching training. Great.
23% of people receiving coaching from their managers felt it was making a significant contribution to their performance and satisfaction. 77% didn’t, not so great.
10% of people felt coaching from their manager was actually having a negative impact. Oh dear.
So the manager as coach formula is not working so well and there’s reason for that – fear. Fear that it takes too long and is too difficult to do to really make an impact. The good news is that there is an alternative and if your curious as to how being more lazy and adequate are key to successful coaching, then watch this webinar:
