|A good attitude will help you to...||A bad attitude can...|
One question you may ask yourself is, "Why should I coach my employees?" or "Why should my company invest in a coaching culture?"
Bad attitudes are a choice. However, they are a choice made by one person, that can affect an entire company. As a coach, you should always be coaching to positive attitudes, regardless if bad attitudes are present in your employees or not. Coaching employees to have positive attitudes can help prevent bad attitudes in the future.
The purpose of coaching is progress. We coach to help employees progress toward their goals and eventually achieve them. Coaching is the means to a successful end. Progress can be seen in many aspects of an employee and their work. Motivation, attitude, engagement, effort, relationships, etc. all show how an employee is progressing, and each of those aspects is developed by coaching. Progress develops from good coaching techniques. Here are 7 coaching techniques to help increase progress.
Having a good attitude can lead to higher motivation and higher productivity, and, as you can guess, a bad attitude can lead to lower motivation and lower productivity. A good attitude in the work place is crucial, without it, not only does the employee suffer but the company as well.
Why Coaching is Important by Carly Kleiman
You know the term "Silos" when we desribe teams that do not work well together. Why is it? Why do people struggle to work with one another at times? Sadly, it takes sometimes just one person to break down the fiber of a good team.
There are four steps to building a really good team:
- Establish Rapport - this is where we build awareness of one another as people by doing activities that facilitate communication and introduction to one another's strengths’ and personal attributes.
- Establish commonality -this is where we begin to have an understanding of one another as people after attending some type of activity that facilitates awareness of one another. Often people have things in common we normally do not take time to even discover.
- Build awareness of issues -this is where we communicate issues where we have strengths and opportunities to work better together. This is the stage where most struggle start to occur in terms of teams working well together or not working well together. The key is to simply share perspectives and issues with one another and have NO response, meaning people cannot argue or rebuttal. They simply have to listen which is where most teams struggle.
- Action - Take action on the awareness of specific issues.
