Developing Others through Mentoring and Coaching
Developing stronger relationships among colleagues drives results both within the organization and with vendors and partners. These relationships cannot be developed without strong mentoring and coaching. To develop these skills, mid and senior level leaders must have the tools to drive coaching and mentoring initiatives.
Distance is a critical challenge when building a culture of coaching and mentoring. Remote employees, cultures, age and geography all impact the ability to coach for strong results. Careful focus must be utilized to create the right environment and relationships for mentoring and coaching. Additionally, commitment is related to all the other success factors. To get commitment from employees, you must lead by example and demonstrate your willingness to adapt to and thrive in the working environment. To ensure your team has increased productivity levels, focus on measurable results, and track projects closely to maintain the lines of communication.
