Business Coaching to Hold Employees to Account

Scheduling Business Coaching Meetings to Initiate and Monitor Employee Change

When managers wish their employees to change, whether it is because their behaviour or attitude is unacceptable or that they wish them to take on more responsibility, it is vital that they not only communicate this message to the employee(s) but that they schedule regular review meetings to ensure that progress is being made.

By holding workers to account and making the effort to check their progress and development in regular business coaching meetings with them, managers prove that they are serious about change and it is not something which was a flash in the pan idea one day that they will soon forget about.

Monitoring Progress and Rewarding Positive Action

Simply telling a worker or misfiring team that they need to change will have very little effect if it is not backed up with regular review sessions to monitor progress and re-evaluate what needs to be done. It is also important for the manager to show recognition and appreciation for the positive steps that have been taken since the last meeting, however small they may be.

By rewarding positive action and behaviour the manager encourages repetition and continuation, and increases the motivation of the employees in question as they feel that their efforts are not going unappreciated or unnoticed.

Making Gradual Changes

Managers also need to take into account that change and transition is often smoother when small steps are taken rather than one big, radical change all in one go. Workers will find it much easier to adapt over a period of time rather than have to endure a monumental upheaval all in one go.
