The Gallup organization, in their 2013 “State of the American Workplace” report, have come out with a new survey that says 70% of employees hate their jobs or are disengaged and are not motivated by incentives.
Of this 70% (could ANY of these be on your front line?), 20% are classified as “actively disengaged” meaning that they are actively looking for jobs and generally making life miserable for those around them. Of the remaining 50%, the survey tells us that these employees are not inspired by their managers. This statistic makes me sad since I know what kind of an impact this can have on customer service and your profitability.
But I wonder if it has to be this way. Can we encourage better relationships with our subordinates through coaching? Isn’t it our job as managers to inspire and motivate, encourage growth, and establish the culture?
In organizations that have a stable and motivated work force, I know that internal and external coaching plays a huge part.
In these organizations, coaching creates better lines of communication.
In these organizations, coaching allows the manager to spend quality time with those under their supervision.
In these organizations, coaching allows talent to be recognized and growth to occur.
Better get coaching!
