Master Series - Coaching Managers
Human resource professionals face challenges every day and dealing with problem managers is one of the most critical. Poor managers create a poor working culture and are generally ineffective, thus impacting the workforce’s productivity and the organization’s bottom line.
While management problems are common, getting managers to change is very difficult as they normally just do not accept the fact that the problem is theirs (usually blaming the employee) nor are they willing to change.
In this master series presentation, Dr. Jerome Osteryoung will review the steps necessary to help managers begin to understand how their behavior is impacting the problem and provide strategies for improvement/correction.
Understanding the real issue, is the first step to fixing the problem. Once the problem is understood and the culpability established, the next step is to coach the manager to determine the appropriate solution. When the manager develops his or her own solution to the problem the results are much more powerful then providing him/her with the answer. However, getting the manager to come up with the solution requires skills that will be covered in this presentation.

- Provide effective coaching strategies to address poor performing managers
- Understand the importance of how managers impact their team’s and ultimately the organization’s performance
