Who’s the all time favorite coach from work? Just thinking about it makes one remember all the tasks and goals achieved. Who was the worst? Why? These questions were studied repeatedly in employees across the country and some interesting answers were brought to bear. It would seem that the nicest coach won out. That employees are really looking for just a hand holder or Grandpa figure to just give them candy and let them run loose. But it seems that Jim Case Carlton’s Training has discovered that it’s more complicated. Or is it?
When Ken Blanchard announced he was coming out with the Whale Done video, everyone seemed to stop what they were doing to dive into what would be a spiritual journey of discovery. But when bosses say they have a new idea at work, most roll their eyes and think of all the work that will come with it. Ken Blanchard is one of those rare coaches that seem to get employees so excited about committing to the goal and him that’s all they focus on and the work just gets done.
But men like Ken Blanchard are rare. The qualities they possess are rare. The one that is repeated relentlessly in regards to these people is their understanding. They understood each and every person they are coaching. That is the trait. The Practical Coach was another training video that captured the attention of employees as well for that very same reason.
So how does a coach learn to understand his people? Watching a leadership training video alone won’t do it. Modeling after the people in them will certainly help. It may sound odd but the surest way to get someone not work on a project is to focus on the project. The surest way to get them focused on the project is to focus on them. Coaches that take the time to know the people they coach and what drives them are given the playbook on how to manage them. This is the secret. Listening and taking proper action.
