Mike The Coach
Where Experience Meets Coaching
Entry and Mid-level Managerial Coaching:
- Is that young, high-potential individual contributor who you just promoted to lab manager killing morale among the technical staff, causing lowered productivity and increased absenteeism?
- Is your former super saleswoman, recently promoted to regional sales manager, continuing to operate as an individual contributor by not leveraging her considerable skill set and knowledge across the organization?
- Is the head of the largest part of your procurement organization antagonizing his peers and suppliers with his mindless focus on cost at the expense of everything else?
- Are you looking for a way to avoid the pitfalls new managers face with your recently promoted, high-potential manager?
Leadership Team Coaching:
- Is your leadership team, be it at plant, sales or operational level, not coming together in a way that creates a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts?
- Is your leadership team “siloed”?
- Is it unable or unwilling to ask the difficult questions of one another that lead to breakthroughs in performance?
- Are your leadership team meetings more like one on one sessions with you while the others watch or work their PDA’s?
This is a custom service designed to reach a win / win outcome when all other avenues between the parties have resulted in stalemate or worse.
