Hire talent, teach them how to do their jobs and let them perform at their very best without a lot of oversight. This is every manager’s dream. While most people eventually figure out how to do their jobs, today’s fast changing business scene, cannot wait for the workforce to catch up with the realities of competition and the quarterly results driven culture. Today’s managers are required to jump start their teams and provide the platform and resources to perform at their most optimal levels. Today’s workforce is looking for managers who empower and allows for fulfillment that transcends the traditional compensation centered workplace. Good managers realize that need and create an emotionally rich environment, where individuals will feel safely challenged to perform at their best. No longer is the team looking for a traditional manager, who will guide them in their day-to-day work, conduct performance reviews and deliver annual increments. Managers are required to lead teams to challenge their own self, deliver geometrically incremental success and be the competitive edge that people are supposed to be for the organization. This talk will help managers coach their teams to find their own inner strength and perform at their best not because but in spite of the support they provide. Managers have to become coaches. Coaching should be the role that managers should embrace and adopt if they want to lead their teams into the competitive and rapidly evolving landscape.
