Management Coaching – Experience Needed-stanley博士的家2

Coaching Many .panies make the dangerous mistake of hiring someone simply on the basis that they have managed people before, taking for granted that they are an experienced manager who will not require any further help. In fact, nothing could be further from the truth. Managers are human beings too, and just as making home-cooked meals for a few years doesn’t qualify someone to be a master chef, though it might be a good start, be.ing a good manager consists of much more than having past experience managing some people for a while. This is the time that management coaches .e in. One of the most important resources human resources can provide is the kind of management coaching that turns a mediocre manager into the leader of a all-star team. There’s a reason that top CEO’s of Fortune 500 .panies spend a .bined total of millions in one to one training with the world’s most elite coaches. That reason is that even someone with as many successes as Bill Gates or Steve Jobs knows that he doesn’t know it all. A similarity may be found in the field of music – George Gershwin took lessons in harmony from other .posers, at a time when he was the most famous and well-paid living .poser in the world! If the leaders of the world take personal coaching, isn’t that a good indication that management coaching is an important part of bringing out the best in your management team? Where to draw the line is the only question. Does everyone who is someone’s supervisor need management coaching? What if someone is only a project leader? Lead engineer? Merely "senior" engineer, managing no one but himself or herself? The answer is definitely yes. Anyone making management decisions needs coaching, and the reason is that no one is perfect. We all had to learn things somewhere, but changes in the world (especially increases in business efficiency) require us to adapt and stay ahead of the curve. Like the kid’s saying "you snooze, you lose", managers who receive no training "lose". They lose their edge, their team’s advantage, and, if they are particularly bad managers, they might even lose their work force. .petent management coaching ensures that an angry lapse will never destroy a team, that a bad day doesn’t mean a bad month, and that teams are led, and not just managed. Raising leaders doesn’t happen without investing in them, and management coaches are the most proactive way of doing that — for a Fortune 500 CEO, and for your management team as well.
