They’re opinionated. Moody, Defensive. Lackluster in their efforts.
As leaders, we’ve all encountered people who seemingly resist every approach we attempt to make at coaching and mentoring them. And these frustrating experiences usually leave us asking the question:
Am I doing something wrong or are these employees just uncoachable?
Most likely, coaching can be successful. But we all have employees that make our task of coaching a lot more difficult. And it is far easier to let them hover above the bare minimum standard than actually TALK to them about improving.
But, the longer we put off this task, the less productive that employee will be. And worse, their attitude is often contagious. Negativity and poor performance begins to seep into your entire staff.
How do we effectively nurture and guide these employees before the problem becomes too big to fix?
