Don’t Have All the Answers?

That’s OK!

Did you know that the majority of employees today expect their managers to coach them? At the same time, managers are concerned that they won’t have all the answers. That’s understandable, given the human condition’s need for a sense of control and, in a manager’s case, the appearance of expertise.
The good news: Employees don’t want advice. They want to be stretched and asked questions that allow them to sort things out and learn as a result.

You can do that!  For more tips on coaching your employees, see Coaching Builds Commitment (from All Things Workplace.)
