Do you know when to manage and when to coach?

The Forbes article below highlights the difference between when you need to manage versus when you need to be a coach using the sports team analogy.  What is your natural way of leading?  Are you able to change your way of leading depending on the situation or the employee that you are dealing with?  Take the time to read this great article and map out your thoughts about your leadership style.  It’s important to view each member of your staff as an individual and to manage each person based on their level of competency, development path, and personality type.  Doing this will allow you to get the best results from your team and to ensure that things are getting done in a timely manner.  If you are not a confident leader, take some time to self develop by reading, getting a mentor or by hiring a consultant to work with you in this area; you will see the ROI based solely on your ability to work with your team in the most effective way possible.

Happy reading,
