Developing an engaged team
Employee engagement is a challenge for most managers, and according to Gallup it isn’t getting any easier. This is a problem if we’re talking service, because we all know the difference between an engaged service employee … and a person who just happens to have a job.
You can dramatically increase the engagement of your frontline staff through a shift in your leadership style.
You see, up to 70% of an employee’s engagement level can be directly ascribed to the immediate supervisor’s leadership style.
Maybe you’re thinking this is all well and good but how can a class or course change your leadership style? You might not know what aspects you should be working on.
This is exactly why courses are not the way to go. You need a coach.
‘Working with Mike Hohnen over the past 2 years has majorly improved the leadership and management skills throughout our management team! Mike’s ability to detect the “soft spots” in each department or function is extraordinary and ensures development on an individual level and across a team. Mike’s coaching is very “hands-on” and he pushes you gently but firmly further than you imagined possible, providing you with relevant tools and at the same time keeping the motivation and personal drive in focus, which enables you to continue your development even after your coaching sessions have terminated. We will definitely invite Mike to future coaching sessions, both for our managers individually and for the management team!’
Stine Kold, Hoteldirektør at Rungstedgaard.
The best way to find out if coaching works for you is to try it – so here is my offer to you. Give me a call or send me an email and we can set up a first session for you.
If after the first session you decide you would like to continue, you pay for the first session. If not, you are free to say ‘No thanks, not for me,’ and there will be no charge whatsoever – and no hard feelings either, by the way.
So it’s all win and no risk – you just need to take the first step and you’ll be on your way to dramatically improving your impact as a manager.
‘Mike has a brilliant mind and a huge amount of experience and energy, which has transformed me and all of my former team mates at Select Service Partner into more efficient managers. Mike is a first class coach who will make anyone GROW,’
Claus Berthou Madsen, Senior Consultant at Resonans.
By the way, has it ever struck you that the top performers in virtually any field – music, sport, acting, etc. – all have a coach.
What does this tell you?
Great people who want to get even better get a coach – that’s the way they do it. ;-)
