Managers as Coaches: Yes, You Can Boost Employee Motivation, Engagement and High Performance

Managers who coach their people become known as good managers to work for, developers of talent, and achievers of business results. They also become better leaders in the process.”  -Jack Welch, Former CEO General Electric

Are your people working harder yet performance is still below par?  When a leader spends too little time managing performance, here’s what happens.  Small sparks turn into creeping flames that, if not doused, quickly grow into raging fires. Work starts slipping through the cracks. Resources are squandered. Deadlines are missed. You’re constantly playing catch up.

Good managers regularly keep each member of their group or team informed about his or her work performance. If this is not done then you probably are going to have problems of employee frustration and low morale, customer complaints or dissatisfaction and unfortunately, more of your time fixing problems rather than getting your work done.

However, many managers are uncomfortable with discussing performance issues with employees.  This webinar will give you the tools to:

  • Improve Poor or Managerial Performance that will focus the employee on the performance problem; uncover the “real “reasons, and jointly agree upon specific actions to solve the problem.
  • Change Poor Work Habits such as inappropriate dress, improper use of the telephone, lateness, etc. You’ll need to handle it immediately before it spreads to the rest of the workgroup.
  • Recognize Good Performance that will motivate to higher performance as well as maintain improved performance and avoid slippage back to old ways

Start building your coaching muscles now. When you provide coaching that is positive, constructive, and reinforcing, it will motivate and engage your employees to strive for high performance and productivity.

Stay Interviews: A Powerful Employee Engagement and Retention Strategies

The best way to find out what your employees want and how to retain them is to ask them. Ask questions to gauge how you’re meeting your employees’ expectations. Not just “How’s it going?”, but specific questions to get specific answers.

Explore why these people remain with your company. Why did they join the organization? How well are their objectives or dreams being fulfilled? Which aspects of their work do they enjoy the most? Which do they least enjoy? Are they receiving sufficient opportunities for growth and development? What would influence them to look elsewhere?

The stay interview is a one-on-one interview between a manager and a valued employee. Its aim, quite simply, is to learn what makes employees want to keep working for you. Likewise, it's designed to elicit what might motivate them to leave. In an effective 30-minute stay interview, managers ask standard, structured questions in a casual and conversational manner. It’s not a performance discussion but rather a “let me get to know you and your goals” discussion.

The stay interview is an opportunity to build trust with employees and a chance to assess the degree of employee satisfaction and engagement that exists in a department or company. Stay interviews are preferable to employee satisfaction surveys because they:

  • Provide a two-way conversation and a chance to ask questions,
  • Get more in-depth understanding of that employee’s current motivation
  • Offer managers the opportunity to quickly reinforce the positives and deal with the employee’s concerns.

Your Organization's Culture: If You Don't Get It Right, Nothing Else Matters

Get on a Southwest flight to anywhere, buy shoes from Zappos.com, pants from Nordstrom, groceries from Whole Foods, anything from Costco, a Starbucks espresso, or a Double-Double from In N' Out, and you'll get a taste of these brands’ vibrant change management trainingcultures.

Unfortunately,changing company culture is often misunderstood and discounted as a touchy-feely, rather than a bottom line, component of a business. That’s not the case.

As Peter Drucker, the founder of modern management said, “Culture eats strategy for lunch.” Changing culture in the workplace is one of the most important business drivers that must be intentionally set and periodically adjusted to push long-term, sustainable success. It's not good enough just to have an amazing product and a healthy bank balance. The workplace culture can enable company culture ideas, or be the key to its undoing.

What about your corporate culture change examples? Does it inspire and engage or get in your people’s way, slowing and wearing them down? Is it driven from top-down directives or cross-department collaboration? What stories do employee engagement survey tell about you? This webinar will show how to change your organization culture.

The Millennial Workforce: How to Engage and Tap into Their Innovative Spirit

“The future belongs to individuals and companies who embrace the entrepreneurial spirit, whether that is inside or outside a company. The fundamental question is what is going to have people get motivated and inspired to make their highest contribution? What is going to get them fired up to do what they came here to do?” From “The Rise of the Entrepreneur”, Fast Company.

As a company grows, it naturally becomes more bureaucratic. For employees who are highly motivated, resourceful, and self-reliant –especially the millennial generation - a bureaucratic environment can be stifling. This can result in your key talent moving on to greener pastures.

To prevent this brain drain, companies are creating a culture that allow for the entrepreneurial spirit within their existing business operations. They are also developing managers with an awareness of the similarities and differences between generations and how the various age groups prefer to be engaged. Smart companies are now stepping up their game with their managers and team leaders on how to attract, motivate and retain the Millennial generation.

The focus of this webinar is to help companies in recruiting and retaining millennials, create an entrepreneurial culture and to help managers engage their workers and tap into their innovative spirit.

Intrapreneurship: Developing the Entrepreneurial Spirit and Traits inside your Company

“The future belongs to individuals and companies who embrace the entrepreneurial spirit, whether that is inside or outside a company. The fundamental question is what is going to have people get motivated and inspired to make their highest contribution? What is going to get them fired up to do what they came here to do?” From “The Rise of the Intrapreneur”, Fast Company.

The answer is intrapreneurship: a set of practices that allow employees to work within a company in an entrepreneurial capacity focusing their energy and passion on creating new products and services; expanding your brand into different markets; or improving existing processes to be more customer friendly. 

Intrapreneurship practices are a response to today’s rapidly changing marketplace. Many businesses have internal units dedicated to Rand D and new product and market development. However, they now realize the need for a faster response to the challenges of a constantly changing environment and customer needs.

As a company grows it naturally becomes more bureaucratic. For employees who are highly motivated, resourceful, and self-reliant –especially the millennial generation - a bureaucratic environment can be stifling. This can result in your key talent moving on to greener pastures. To prevent this brain drain, companies are now creating a culture and incentives that allow for the entrepreneurial spirit within their existing business operations.

Talent Intelligence: Keep Engagement High and Retain Your Key Employees

A new Global Workforce Study by global HR consultant Towers Watson found that over two-thirds of U.S. workers “are not fully engaged in their work and are struggling to cope with work situations that don’t provide sufficient support.” 

They are emotionally disconnected from their companies and may actually be working against their employers' interests. They tend to be less productive; to be more likely to steal from their companies; to negatively influence their coworkers as well as miss workdays and drive customers away.

Therefore, when workers are not fully engaged, it leads to greater performance risk for employers. It makes companies more vulnerable to lower productivity, higher inefficiency, weaker customer service, and greater rates of absenteeism and turnover. And it costs companies millions of dollars each year in waste, inefficiency and customer dissatisfaction.

Change Intelligence - Become an Effective Change Agent

Is change occurring in your organization?  Are these changes causing stress or conflicts?  Do you know how to get everyone on board the change train that’s rapidly heading out of the station?  How do you get employees to not only go through the motions, but also actually “buy into the changes that are necessary?  The secret to managing greater levels of change is not to press harder on the pedal already floored, but to shift gears...to develop leadership and change management - to become an effective change agent. 

Any significant change creates “HR issues.” New leaders will be asked to step up, jobs will be changed, new skills and capabilities must be developed, and employees will be uncertain and resistant. Dealing with these issues on a reactive basis puts speed, morale, and results at risk. Therefore, change leaders need to understand the human response to change and create effective strategies for employee engagement ideas to achieve change
