Coaching and Training Should Not be an Onerous Task

Ensuring That Business Coaching is Seen as a Positive

A classic mistake that many managers who are setting about providing business coaching or training sessions to their employees make is giving off the impression that doing so is a chore and is a stealer of time rather than a productive experience. By doing so, the delegate(s) attending the sessions will begin to think that the manager does not view it as important, and as a result they do not take it too seriously either.

Not only does it give off negative vibes regarding the importance of the training, but employees may also begin to wonder if the work they are doing is viewed as that important by management, which can often result in demotivation and a decline in performance and standards.

Managers Also Need to Embrace Business Coaching Positively

Coaching and training sessions are far more effective when they are carefully planned with predetermined objectives and have been allocated a sufficient amount of dedicated, uninterrupted time. If a manager views them as an onerous task they are likely to try and fit them in when they can rather than put aside a specific time slot for training. In this situation topics are likely to be rushed and not covered in necessary detail, which weakens the effectiveness and potential of the sessions.

Prioritising Training and Development

Obviously managers are busy people and situations do crop up from time to time which require their immediate attention and may cause a coaching session to be delayed or postponed. But a manager who views the training and development of their staff members as a priority and devotes an appropriate amount of time and attention to the training sessions will more often than not be rewarded later on down the line with a workforce which is more motivated and capable at performing their workplace requirements in an efficient manner and to the best of their abilities.
