When to Coach and When to Supervise
June 3, 2022 @ 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
Most of us have had a supervisor our whole lives. We go from parents to teachers to bosses. Even the top executives in many organizations will be reporting to a board of directors. On the job, everybody has somebody they are accountable to, but they may or may not have somebody they consider to be a coach. Likewise, all supervisors have people they are accountable for but may not have been taught how to fill the shoes of a coach with their direct reports. To lead effectively, you need to know when to wear which hat.
This webinar will encourage you to be prepared to be effective both as a coach and as a supervisor. How are they different? How are they alike?
A supervisor is an agenda-setter who operates in a telling mode and conveys expectations. A supervisor has the power at their disposal that can influence the direct report’s pay, promotion, and performance evaluation. A coach avoids the telling mode and encourages the coachee to clarify what success means to them. An effective coach will orchestrate questions that foster self-discovery, personal accountability, and self-evaluation.
