THE MANAGER COACH, Facilitating Versus Directing
In the past decades, managers directed and controlled the work of “hired hands.” Today, managers operate more like facilitators: instead of allocating resources like passive, hands-off investors, they bring the right people together, engage them in planning the work and coordinate the execution. They monitor the progress of projects, but they may listen more often than provide one-way direction. In this context, the act of controlling morphs into coaching, facilitating, nurturing and developing.
The manager of today does not use his staff anymore to just achieve the responsibilities he has been assigned for, rather he is expected to develop one management style that emphasizes on emotional intelligence and entails more interest for people and connecting, sense of collaboration and concern for making people grow.
To summarize, today’s manager is expected to move toward organizational success.
While building a dedicated, cohesive team. His leadership priorities aim at concentrating his efforts that bring meaning and purpose to those he leads.Objective: to generate a new state of mind, new behaviors and methods, with the objective of increasing managers’ teams’ competences, in line with the evolution of the company.
