Did you know that in order
to be a great supervisor or manager, you must be willing to inspire your employees
to work for you because they want to not because they have too?
But first, you must begin
to think like and act like a coach, not a supervisor. Supervisors delegate,
coaches motivate! A coach is someone who does what he can, where he is, with
what he has, and is never satisfied. A coach takes time to properly prepare
himself for the daily grind. How does a coach prepare himself?
- He has a positive mental
There is only one
person in this world who can give you a healthy positive self-esteem-you!
What you think of yourself and what you tell yourself, is what will determine
your future. You and only you have the power over your attitude.
- Be the best coach you
To be a good coach, you must set a great example. People will believe and
trust what they see, not just what they hear. The better model you are for
others, the easier it will be to coach them.
- Smile more!
Smiles draw positive
attention to you and make you feel at ease. Smiles inspire confidence in the
person who is smiling and boost the confidence of the person who sees the
smile. And, smiling builds your reputation as a winner!
- Listen while you lead
Pay attention to details. Listen to what your staff is saying and not saying.
By carefully listening to their verbal and non-verbal communication, you are
showing them that you care about them. This will make it easier for you to
listen and lead them into their greatness.
Coaches are needed more
than ever. Your responsibility is to constantly develop, promote and motivate
your employees to do more. So remember, "Do what you can, where you are, with
what you have, and never be satisfied!"
