Research conducted over decades by the Gallup Organization shows clearly that the number 1 factor that determined the job satisfaction and performance of valuable employees, and therefore leads them to grow with the organization, is the relationship they have with their boss. That’s you!
If you want happy, productive employees who contribute to the organization and fulfill their potential, it’s time to take your role as a manager beyond simply managing their behavior or responsibilities, and instead facilitate their development—as a coach.
Being a coach isn’t about simply developing your employees skills or careers, it’s about helping them grow as a person. It means you are personally invested in their wellbeing and development. Being a high-performing manager is not about telling your employees what to do and providing feedback only during annual performance reviews. It means taking responsibility for their performance and success by partnering with them to chart a course to desired outcomes and supporting them along the way. The time you invest in coaching your employees will reduce the time you spend putting out fires, handling issues, and compensating for low performance.
Don’t be a coach...
... just because 70% of employee learning and development happens on the job, not through formal training programs
... Or because 63% of organizations are using internal coaching because the benefits are numerous
... Or because leaders who implemented coaching effectively and frequently improved results for their business by a staggering 21% compared to managers that do not use coaching.
Become an employee performance coach because of the direct impact it will have on your relationships, your staff’s performance, and your organization’s long-term success.

The first is the Wheel of Life activity, which is a powerful tool designed to help your employee identify what areas of their life are fulfilling and what areas need improvement. The activity is designed to assess different areas of their life as a whole, however you can always use the blueprint for this activity to design your own activity that will help your employee assess different areas of their work life instead.

Lastly, we have included an important activity designed to help you brainstorm solutions with your employee. This activity can also be used in groups. There is an art to brainstorming properly, and this worksheet guides you through key steps and helps you avoid common pitfalls.
