Management Skills

Worried that working remotely has disconnected her team, a leader asks her coach for help and learns a powerful tool.

A no-nonsense leader is asked to add coaching to her list of duties. She turns to the coach who coached her for a quick immersion course. 

A leader, initially described as clueless to his coach, confronts a hard truth about himself. In the process, he gains a four-step tool to guide him through tough conversations.

Two executive coaches tackle questions from readers. One is from a manager who never gets a day off and worries he’s too nice. The other is from an employee who wants better feedback.

A leader’s team tells him they understand him but results later prove otherwise. In conversation with his coach, the leader explores how he may unwittingly contribute to a poor outcome.

After finally receiving his promotion, a newly elevated leader worries about two colleagues who will now be his direct reports. They were bad enough to deal with when they were all peers!

A senior leader feels a direct report is ready to lead her first offsite. With his coach, the manager examines tools a team leader can use to design offsites that can create meaningful change.

A vice president, struggling to control his team of artists, learns a technique from his coach for managing bad behavior. He likes it so much, he uses it with his high performers, too.

A rising leader struggles to manage a direct report who may or may not be a trauma survivor. She and her coach discuss whether compassion is always the most helpful approach.

Building on ideas they’d discussed about the differences between ‘leadership’ and ‘management,’ a leader explores with her coach how she might verbalize those skill sets distinctly.

After her boss appears to conflate the two, a leader and her coach explore whether there are really any differences between ‘leadership’ and ‘management.’ They find there are!

Asked if he ever experienced productive one-on-ones, a leader says, “Once, long ago.” In conversation with his coach, he explores how to make one-on-ones valuable for his direct reports.
