One of my clients asked me what the term meant – manager as a coach. I had not thought much about it recently but the answer to this question for me was focused on the results.
First as manager and then as executive coach, I've worked to understand "why" and "purpose" in business. Why are we doing this task and what is the purpose, the result. Whether it includes a plan, goals, goals or methods, it has been important to understand the desired production.
I have read a lot about managers who train givers and managers who need training (receivers) so that givers and receivers understand more about themselves. These results are great, although I still wonder about the company's prospective demand.
I have worked with several companies and their managers. Most managers were not trained to manage. For their credit, they became an expert in a career other than managers and always acted as managerial role. (Remember that the story of the top sales representative is introduced to sales manager?)
I think about point A on the map, the beginning of my colleagues. I want to understand with them where we are starting from, why and for what purpose. (Yes, these questions again). And then I engage my colleagues in discussion of team B on the map. Yes, why do B indicate, and for what purpose? I want to understand each individual point of view at point A and point B to ensure that it is a common understanding of the starting point and the goal.
Next, I want to understand how each and every one of my colleagues thinks to get from points A to B. Often I will use diagnostic tests to help each collaborator understand that they are similar, but distinctly different views, so to listen on their point of view it is important to understand how we can coordinate our approach to work better together. When they understand what motivates them to the goal, it is easier to help them define a way to get there.
This is a simple, short story of a "manager as a coach" who describes the role of managing director in collaboration with others to clarify the starting point and endpoint of the goal or goal, to clearly understand why they have defined the goal in a particular way and how the manager can focus on his colleagues by achieving the goal by participating in sharing their views so that they can perform better in line with their goals.
Being a manager as a coach is a continuous process that asserts managers, employees and companies achieve their goals and goals with greater clarity, ease and performance.
