9780077140182: Manager as Coach: The New Way to Get Results

SHORTLISTED FOR THE CMI MANAGEMENT BOOK OF THE YEAR AWARD 2013

It's a tough job being a manager.

How do you manage performance? If you come across as too directive you may get a reputation for harshness. If you are too nice you risk being known as a gullible and easily outmanoeuvred. Neither approach works.

'Employee engagement' is the magical ingredient: it makes staff genuinely committed, creating excellent work. Few organizations actually achieve it, though all say they want it. Coaching is the most reliable a way of producing it.

In Manager as Coach, Jenny Rogers challenges many of the traditional assumptions about what works in management and shows you, step by step, how to be a brilliant manager and get fantastic results:

  • Reduce your stress
  • Develop employees' key skills
  • Create a culture of engagement
  • Improve bottom line results
"Jenny Rogers' advice is simple, memorable, deeply pragmatic, and always focused on results. If only more managers would take it!"
Tim Brooks, CEO, BMJ Group

"This pragmatic book will stimulate managers to drive higher performance and get the best out of people. In such a challenging environment, this can only be good for business!"
Carolyn McCall, CEO, Easy Jet

"A must-read for any manager working to foster the right culture. Belief in excellence and the ability to enable people to perform at their best is fundamental for generating and sustaining high performance."
Johanna Friedl-Naderer,Region Vice President, Biogen Idec

"I believe this common-sense, simple approach would motivate both managers and individuals to change and empower them to improve their own performance."
Michael Parr, CEO, British Arab Commercial Bank

From the Back Cover:

It’s a tough job being a manager.

How do you manage performance – the most important single part of a boss’s job? If you come across as too directive you may get a reputation for harshness and may even find that formal grievances are being laid against you.

Book Description McGraw-Hill Education - Europe, United States, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 214 x 134 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Being a manager is tough and if directives and control don t work, what are the alternatives? Just telling people to be empowered is not the answer. Sharing responsibility while the boss still holds accountability seems like the most obvious solution to the problem of how to get people to do willingly what they might avoid if left to themselves. Coaching is a highly effective way to do this. Employee engagement is the current conundrum in organisations who want to nurture their staff at the same time as wanting to perform successfully in their markets. It is the magical ingredient which makes staff willingly work flat out, feel genuinely committed and aligned to the company s strategic aims, and produce excellent work as a result. Few organisations actually achieve employee engagement, though all say they want it. Coaching is a way of producing it. Applying coaching principles to line management has multiple benefits. It can: Develop employees so that they grow the skills the organisation needs Create committed employees Reduce managerial stress Enhance organizational performance.
