Some solutions are to coach the complainer on how to approach the complainee. Often the best fixes come from coaching the complainer to deal with their own problems I am an HR manager. I have employees who come to me with complaints about their supervisors and these supervisors are also my confidants as managers on the management team I am on. Do I keep their complaints to myself or share with the manager that I think will fix the issue with no problem? Employees whine.

The Peter Principle

Working Girl

We see it in sports all the time, a star player moves to a new team with a new coach and stops performing because he doesn''t respond to the new coach''s management style. First of all, thanks to Alex Drexel over at Talented Apps for posting about a recent NYT article Random Promotions positing that promoting people at random is better than promoting them for competence.

When is Help Helpful?: The Capacity to Make Use of Help

Conversation Matters

Another common example, are the many instances of executive coaching where the company contracts with and pays for a coach to help a manager who has been identified as “in difficulty” – clearly a triangular case of help.? Tom Gilmore and I have received some thoughtful comments from our initial post in this series “When is Help Helpful?” Those comments call our attention to the relationship or the system in which both parties are embedded.

Why Managers Make More Money

Evil HR Lady

You don't give someone their first job supervising others and immediately have him fire someone without expert coaching. It seems like you didn't receive that expert coaching. Explain what is going on, and what you want to do and ask for coaching. You would, of course, do this after regular coaching and with approval from your manager. I have been working at my place of employment for about a year and half.

By consistent, I mean that his on-time percentage is 12% for the year to date - that means that he's arrived on time >10 days since the first working day of 2009. Mr. X also frequently leaves early, particularly during the spring months, when he coaches his daughter's Little League team. He can't be reached when he's coaching Little League. I know plenty of people who could coach Little League and have their work be completely unaffected.

Ceremony

True Faith HR

First and third base coaches create elaborate signs they send to the runner in attempting to fool the defense regarding whether a stolen base will occur. A common theme at the 2009 SHRM National Conference was trust and transparency. A central tenet of major sports is deception. In baseball, for example, the catcher and pitcher exchange signs so they are on the same page in attempting to fool the batter on what pitch will be thrown.

Dreams Never End.

True Faith HR

Having just returned from the 2009 SHRM Annual Conference in New Orleans, I will have a few blog posts in the upcoming days highlighting my thoughts from the 5 days in NOLA. Family, friends, colleagues, coaches, peers are all interviewed. However, I will start off my inaugural post discussing an event that just preceded the SHRM Conference - the NBA draft. With a background in HRM, I find the NBA and NFL drafts to be quite fascinating. As a fan of the Milwaukee Bucks (ugh!)

Tell him that you will be happy to coach him through this process. I am going to use the following names in this scenario: SUPERVISOR: John, EMPLOYEE: Jane Jane asked John if he had said anything about her to another employee. He said he did not. He asked Jane who told him that. Jane refuses to tell him who. Jane stated that his word is good enough for her. John sends me (HR) a written statement and demands an investigation on why employees are gossiping about him.

Low Employee Morale

ReviewSNAP

This is when the coaching and counseling skills of a good manager come to bear. That problem employee needs to be coached and counseled to change his/her behavior to better blend with co-workers. Employee morale is a fuzzy issue at best. Measuring morale can be difficult and inconclusive since employees will often not reveal their true feelings. But make no mistake about it. Employee morale has a major impact on productivity and ultimately profitability.
