In the majority of cases, employees who are without motivation, support, and coaching from their managers, will face a difficult time developing their talents on their own.
Research has shown that the support and effective involvement of managers is the single most important factor in determining whether what an employee learns in a classroom transfers into actual changes in behaviour on-the-job.
Managers who are effectively involved in the growth and development of their employees make changes in behaviour happen. This takes managers who:
- Continuously support and coach the development of their employees
- Positively impact learners before, during and after each element in a learning process
- Effectively handle “coaching moments” so that employees teach themselves
By learning to develop and coach others, managers learn to effectively and successfully develop and coach their team members to become better and more consistent performers.
Investing time in employee coaching programmes will help your managers learn the specifics of how they can effectively impact the learning process and coaching moments of their teams to make a positive difference.
