Department Transfers for Business Coaching and Development

If Footballers Can be Loaned, Why Not Workers?

In football, a player who is not in the immediate requirements of the manager to play in the team can be loaned to another. This is primarily done with young, inexperienced players to not only help develop their skills by playing regularly but also to provide them with experience of the pressure that comes with playing in front of a crowd of people and possibly even television cameras.

Although often not thought of, the same tactic can also be utilised in a business environment too and form part of a business coaching and personal development programme. Instead of having a young or inexperienced worker doing the same job every day, it may be possible for them to temporarily move to another department or work for a manager who currently has more time available to devote to helping the employee develop their skills.


Discuss it With the Employee First

It will be important to ensure that the worker has been informed and agrees to this movement, preferably discussing it with them during one or more business coaching meetings, otherwise they may wonder why they are being moved; even thinking that they have done something wrong or that their current manager is trying to get rid of them.


Developing New Skills

Numerous skills can be developed in this new environment. For a start, it may improve their interpersonal and communication skills if they are forced to talk and engage with a new set of people, rather than just talking to their existing colleagues. A manager who has more time to spend with the employee can impart their managerial knowledge and experience, as well as letting the employee shadow and observe what they do and how they act. This can be a perfect complement to any formal management training courses or programmes that the person attends. Also, the employee may learn new skills and methods of working from a new set of people that they would otherwise not do by sitting with the same people day after day.
