This is a really interesting topic. No time is also viewed to employees as "My manager does not care." The top performers believe this as much as struggling performers do. Second, when managers say they don't have time to coach, I typically challenge that with "You already coach your employees." They usually look surprised, but I say to them "You send a message every day that prompts them to stay or leave the company." Your message of silence, if you do not coach, is heard loud and clear. Read through the white paper below to find out six reasons why managers should not use a "lack of time" as an excuse for not coaching:
In addition, keep in mind the top five reasons every organization should have their managers take time to coach:
1. Retention - top performers are the most wanted by the competition so be aware.
2. Recruitment - you are a personal leadership brand and the question is, "Will your employees promote you as a boss?"
3. Culture of Participation - is the culture filled with people willing to practice and get better every day?
4. Performance Development - performance does NOT arbitrarily improve with demands, it takes time, scheduled time, as well as, practice.
5. Engagement - most employees in corporate America state their managers are not engaged, so this provides a unique opportunity.
Managers need to be involved in the development of their employees and coaching them will help drive an employees' performance.
