Manager & Supervisor Coaching
How can you be a better coach? Invest in yourself to bring out the best in others.
All leaders -- whether they are new supervisors, managers, or Senior Vice Presidents – know the value of good coaching, and probably had at least one good mentor along the way. In sports, even the best athletes learn and take advice from a coach. In business, a good coach can help you see things in a different way so that you can reach your full potential.
Coaches help you capitalize on your strengths in your work environment. A good coach also helps you discover areas of weakness and guides you in the process of compensating for them. In this way, an impartial, outside coach can see things from a new perspective and help you in ways that insiders may be afraid to communicate or may no longer see as valuable.

Dave shares how on-the-spot coaching is an effective technique for both new and experienced supervisors and managers to help empower their team and enhance their skills, and prevent the manager from slipping back into the "doer" role.
How TeamMechanics Coaching Works
A TeamMechanics coach can help you become a more effective coach by:
Listening & Learning
Our first priority is to learn more about you and your particular needs, and through transparent, honest dialogue, earn your trust.
Your TeamMechanics coach will then schedule time to do the following:
Observing your leadership style
in everyday workplace situations
Engaging you in a process of self-discovery to identify your strengths and your developmental opportunities
Sharing behavioral observations
with you during confidential, structured feedback sessions
You will feel like a rock star when we are finished!
When should you bring in a coach?
From the Leader's Perspective
You have provided the appropriate training but the employee’s skills and behaviors remain unchanged.
The employee has generally good work performance overall but is still struggling in a few key areas.
You are at an “impasse” with the employee – he or she is doing enough to reach minimal performance standards, but still has not unlocked full potential.
You have not been able to change the personal “dynamic” you have as a coach/mentor to the employee.
From the “Coachee’s” Perspective
Not satisfied with own personal performance – a desire to get to the next level but not knowing what to do next
Having a tough time breaking out of unproductive work behaviors
Feeling like he or she is in a “rut” and that work is not as enjoyable as it once was
Having ongoing trouble influencing or collaborating with co-workers and the team leader
If any of these situations apply, you or someone on your team may benefit from one-to-one coaching.
