No one wants a boss. I don't like the word "boss"!
Research has shown the No. 1 thing employees want from their leadership is coaching. They want someone who helps them get out of their own way to accomplish their goals. Someone that cares about their future.
Today's workforce environment is begging for personal growth and fulfillment.
💡” The problem is leadership abilities and skills are not keeping up to address the employee needs and concerns for growth."
Employees are getting promoted into management positions without necessarily learning the skills and techniques required to lead. This is where a lot of companies are failing those they are promoting to leadership positions and the people that they have to lead.
Some newly promoted leaders seek upper management for mentorship. This is ok but it's only a band-aid fix. Because this is not that persons' main job, they can't give their full attention and detail that the new leader needs in order to properly grow into the leadership role.
That's why it's important for all companies to invest in hiring a coach to help their leaders grow. If the company won't do it then the person newly hired into that leadership role must take the initiative to invest in their career growth and hire a coach if they want a chance at success and longevity. This also goes for leaders that have been in leadership positions for 2-3 years or more and are struggling to lead their team. You must not be afraid to put your career in your own hands.
Having a coach that will hold you accountable, work with you through your challenges and give you the direction and attention you need will enhance your rate of success as a leader.
💫The Number 1 requirement to be a great leader is emotional intelligence!
Coaches don't give you the answers. They ask open ended and thought-provoking questions that help leaders find the answers themselves.
They help you evoke awareness of yourself, your team, and your environment through emotional intelligence development. As leaders climb the ladder, they can lose touch with their team and reality itself. Communication and feedback become limited which stunts everyone's growth. Emotional intelligence will help you stay connected and keep your feet on the ground.
There is less turnover when employees feel valued and are growing within their jobs.
At the end of the day a leader's job is to develop more leaders,
