Does this sound like you?
As a supervisor, you manage several teams or an entire department. The purpose of your job is to bring value to the company and contribute to its overall success.
Demands are high. When you devote yourself to one improvement project, other problems crop up from behind. Changing priorities, tight labor markets, and guarded funds for capital improvements. Sometimes you wonder if you’ll ever get ahead.
Many supervisors take classes, but as soon as they get back to the workplace, fires start on all sides. In the blink of an eye, two weeks have gone by and it’s difficult to remember what they wanted to implement in their shop.
This is why I’ve migrated from training and consulting to coaching. I believe you have the resources you need, we just have to tap into them. Coaching generates greater results because:
- You set the agenda: what are you trying to accomplish and what are your biggest challenges?
- You create action plans that you can implement in your organization. I help you identify these based on other successes you’ve had in your leadership experience.
- I encourage you, remind you of your strengths, and offer accountability to help you follow through on your commitments.
You can choose to have one-on-one support, or join a topic-driven group. Group coaching is lower cost, lets you hear from others walking in shoes that look like yours, and typically results in long-term collaborative relationships with fellow supervisors.
