Solve Workplace "People Problems"

Solve Workplace “People Problems”

To help you deal with workplace “People Problems” and become an effective coach and outstanding leader, here are a few “inside” management perspectives for your consideration:

~ There is a work climate already existing on your team.  It may be negative and cynical, or just the opposite – positive and exciting.  Or it could be a little of both … or somewhere in between.  Some kind of climate does exist, however, and it is constantly changing.  It’s your job to monitor the climate and make any adjustments necessary to improve performance.

~ Coaching is not a popularity contest.  Coaching is about enhancing your team’s performance.

~ Coaching poor performers will not be easy or fun.  It’s just as tough to point out performance problems as it is to hear about them, so don’t expect coaching poor performers to be fun.

~ Your team is depending on you!  The biggest obstacles to effective team performance are people who don’t carry their share of the load.  So it comes down to this:  Your team is counting on you to address employee performance problems … now!

~ Changing employee performance isn’t your responsibility.  Your responsibility is to coach and provide feedback.  The employees must make the decision to improve their performance … or change where they work.  It is their call.

Your Passport to Success

Your Passport to Success

Passports are resources you use to get from one destination to another. They typically contain the information required to pass through “checkpoints” and meet the standards of your desired location. You can use the “Passport” analogy to also describe tools that help us gain personal and professional success such as:

  • Become a better communicator
  • Work with ethics, honestly, and integrity
  • Deal with change
  • Develop others
  • Provide better customer service
  • Become more focused and confident

Regardless of the change you seek, it’s important to remind yourself that “you are the driver!”  You may have chosen to change or it may have been thrust upon you.  However, to be in the driver’s seat, you must accept the responsibilities.

Daily Quote: Choices We Make

One’s philosophy is not best expressed in words; it’s expressed in the choices one makes. In the long run we shape our lives and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our responsibility.

Are you Good to The Core?

What are those values that we believe, deep down inside? They are our core values. John G. Blumberg, author of Good to the Core, says that most of us want to be good to the core.

Good to the Core: Building Value With Values can be experienced on two different but related perspectives. First, from a personal perspective: exploring our personal core values. Second, from an organizational perspective: thinking about the values that are the fabric of the cultures in which we work. It is his hope that we may become orchardists who plant seeds of our core values into the cultures of our organizations. As John says, “When personal values and organizational values align…exponential value is realized.” And it is my hope that by reading this book you may be inspired to truly live your core values, that you may be inspired to walk the talk.

 

Live Inspired,

Michelle Sedas

Daily Quote: Differences

If you truly want to be effective in today’s world, if you sincerely want to
understand other people, it seems absolutely critical that we accept the
reality that all these people out there who are different from the way we
are, are just as right, correct, and normal as us.

~Morris Massey, PhD
