  • It doesn’t really take that long.
  • It should be part of a regular routine, not something you only do twice a year.
  • Despite poor technique, just doing it can produce decent results.
  • Most people admit (and feel guilty) that they don’t do it as often as they should.

Managers are tasked with executing business strategies. Simply put: getting the work done. At the same time they are supposed to own talent management ā€” developing their staff for not only continued professional success and engagement, but also to fill the future talent needs of the organization.

Coaching of employees fits into this management agenda as a core discipline, just like flossing is part of dental hygiene. It’s part of the managers’ nuts-and-bolts, day-to-day activities ā€” or is it?
