How do you coach a difficult coach? Managers carry a lot of responsibility, but what do you do when they become difficult and unproductive? It can be tough to confront someone in a leadership position, especially when the subject matter is not positive. An easy way to provide managerial coaching is to show concrete, objective results that back up your claim.
Assessments such as CheckPoint°™ are used to evaluate the effectiveness of managers and leaders. This assessment combines feedback from direct reports, peers, supervisors and customers with a personalized program for developing specific leadership skills based on that feedback. CheckPoint
°™ is a coaching tool for difficult managers, and can help managers identify and prioritize their own development opportunities.
Concrete data will allow business leaders to demonstrate why a particular manager needs coaching. Once a manager realizes what areas they need to improve to be more successful, the business leader should develop a communication plan to ensure that the manager is on the right track to improvement.
