Welcome to the third and final week of the “developing your team management skills” series.
This week, I will talk about a specific skill that you need to develop to create a high-performing team.
The skill is coaching.
So, how can you use your coaching skills to build a high-performing team?
Well, as a leader, you need to use coaching to help the people on your team to:
- Develop their skills and abilities
- Boost their performance (which can include their confidence)
- Deal with issues before they become major problems.
Why do you need to coach to have a high-performing team?
Well, all high-performing teams have developed the ability to work collaboratively and communicate frequently and effectively. As a leader, you can use coaching conversations to create this collaborative and transparent team culture.
You can use coaching conversations to…
👉 Keep your team informed
👉 Let your team members know about updates, changes, and clarifications of your expectations
👉 Ensure a high level of collaboration on your team
These coaching conversations thus become the vehicle for high performance on your team.
So, how can you start to coach for high performance?
- Set up formal coaching meetings with your team
- Create an agenda together
- Keep these meetings focused and consistent
These coaching conversations are important for developing an open, high-trust, and high-performing team.
