Do you hate talking with employees about performance issues? Most managers do.

When staff members become unproductive, unmotivated, or disruptive, a manager's first thought should be "how do I get things back on track?” The answer to that question almost always involves coaching.

But since no one is born knowing how to be a coach, managers must learn the specific skills and techniques required to handle these challenging situations effectively.

Learning Objectives

Designed for today’s over-burdened, maxed-out manager, this interactive webinar offers the practical tips you need to effectively resolve performance issues, including:

  1. When coaching is needed and why managers sometimes avoid these conversations,
  2. Specific strategies for conducting a successful coaching discussion,
  3. Dealing with difficult employees, and how to follow up to insure success, and
  4. What to do when coaching doesn’t work.

In every management job, coaching challenges occur on a regular basis; new employees confront learning curves, seasoned staff members tackle unfamiliar tasks, and difficult employees create workplace problems. This power-packed program will guide you through:

  • Recognizing the five most common coaching roadblocks
  • Quick Quiz: What are your personal barriers to coaching?
  • Understanding and using the performance distribution curve
  • Why “wimpy managers” aren’t really managers at all
  • Seven specific causes of employee performance issues
  • Five coaching challenges: Newbies, Androids, Power Grabbers, Clingers, & Divas
  • “Management presence”: the key ingredient for coaching success
  • The difference between developmental coaching & remedial coaching
  • How managers sometimes contribute to performance problems
  • Improving employee performance by shifting your leadership style
  • The 10-step formula for an effective coaching discussion
  • How to engage an employee in the coaching process
  • Managing employee diversions: keeping the coaching discussion on track
  • Following up: the secret to coaching success
  • When to employ corrective action instead of coaching
  • When coaching doesn’t work: Slackers, Square Pegs, & Poisonous People

When an employee repeatedly fails to keep pace, it hurts your organization. Subpar work means lost revenue, dissatisfied customers, wasted time or (understandably) annoyed co-workers called upon to cover gaps. You can’t stand by. The health of your team—and its results—depends on your responsive intervention and skilled coaching.
