Business Coaching and Development - Does the Employee Want to Advance?

Some Employees are Happy With the Status Quo

In order for business coaching and training to be truly effective at developing an employee, it is necessary for that individual to actually want to further and advance their career and personal development. Whilst for some the progression of their career will be of paramount importance and their number one objective, other members of staff will be perfectly content with the current status quo and will not be interested in taking on additional responsibilities or other tasks to those which they are currently doing. If this is the case, then these employees are likely to be extremely reluctant to take part in receiving business coaching or attend training courses with the intention of increasing their skills and abilities at work so that they can move into a different role.

The Willingness of Employees Has a Big Effect on the Effectiveness of Coaching

So not only will some be apathetic to the efforts of management to provide them with training and support, there will be many who in this situation will be actively resistant to these plans. For these employees, the effectiveness of any training or business coaching provided will be limited as the individual will not come with an attitude to learn or implement changes to their current workplace activities.

Managers Ultimately Have the Final Say On The Matter

Of course, managers are the ones who make the decisions on the direction of the company and which staff should be working in which departments and on which tasks. Employees who refuse to do what they are instructed to do, either surreptitiously or openly, run the risk of losing their job. Whilst they may enjoy the current way of things, it is a fact of life that nothing remains the same forever and that change at some point is inevitable. Whilst an employee may not want to advance their career or do different tasks within the company, they may find themselves facing the choice of either complying or leaving, either of their own accord or being made redundant.

Business Coaching for Change Management

Along with career and personal development, business coaching can be a great tool to assist with change management and the transition from one job role to another. The sessions may also prove to be surprisingly beneficial for the employee, as they will be able to openly discuss their apprehensions and worries with the manager or business coach, and may go some way to changing their way of thinking regarding alterations to their work duties.
