Lead Like a Coach: How to get the most out of any team
by Dr Karen Morley
What leadership approach do you take? Do you command and control or have a more inclusive style?
There have been many approaches to leadership over the years, from command and control to more inclusive styles. Some leaders micro-manage, others are quick to delegate. Whether you are a new or a senior leader, how you manage your team has a direct impact on engagement and productivity.
Leaders who coach can double their engagement score. Even more importantly in today’s technology-driven, fast-paced world, they can lighten their load and reduce the pressure on themselves.
Coaching is all about refocusing how you engage with your team. Leaders who coach:
- Focus on the team and on developing the members of the team
- Trust their team and delegate, but are still there to offer support
- Encourage and applaud
- Listen to their team’s challenges and encourage them to find solutions
- Ask coaching questions
- Develop next-gen leaders who pay the coaching approach forward.
