Blog

Blog | Executive Coaching Growth | Scoop.it

It is often said that people join organisations and leave managers.  How does one person have such an effect on someone else's engagement with an organisation when there are so many other factors to consider; culture, processes, values, goals etc…..  Talking to managers, it was clear that great managers can have a very powerful effect on staff engagement and performance, as can poor managers.  So what makes a great manager?

We asked over 500 managers from across the UK, to describe the best managers they had worked for. The top four characteristics of 'best managers' were:

  • respectful
  • supportive
  • empathetic
  • developed their staff

The overwhelming theme: best managers displayed good interpersonal skills and demonstrated care and concern for their staff. These managers also gave staff a sense of commitment that resulted in staff putting extra effort and time into their work.  The skills and attitudes of best managers were described as showing in trustworthiness, approachability, good listening skills, encouragement, humour, honest feedback and praise.

5 Truths About the Nature of Business | Executive Coaching Growth | Scoop.it
Many companies have become caught up in an unrealistic perpetual growth phase, and they believe it will go on forever. The harsh reality is that it almost never does.
Ron McIntyre's insight:

It is about time we begin to discuss the nature of growth and how big can a business become and still expect double digit growth? To often I see unrealistic expectations for growth on industries that have gone into decline and that just kills the moral and innovation. Time for an attitude change.

Making the Case for Employee Engagement Efforts

Making the Case for Employee Engagement Efforts | Executive Coaching Growth | Scoop.it
To be proactive about increasing employee engagement, organizational leaders must become the driving force—making engagement a business and strategic imperative. In order to maximize their efforts on employee engagement, successful businesses will need to evolve from an organization-centric to a people-centric mentality. 
Ron McIntyre's insight:

I am always amazed at the employee engagement stats regardless of who reports them. I am frustrated because so many businesses claim it is a major priority but only 25% have a plan in place. I won't even go into the quality of those plans. Why do we keep ignoring this need?

Not Taking A Lunch Break Is Psychologically Bad For You. Here's Why.

Not Taking A Lunch Break Is Psychologically Bad For You. Here's Why. | Executive Coaching Growth | Scoop.it
If you're not taking a lunch break, your creativity is probably suffering. This might seem obvious, but now there's research to back it up. And it doesn't even matter what you eat, or if you eat at all; what's important is that you physically step away from your workspace to recharge.
Ron McIntyre's insight:

I have advocated this for years but so many are fearful of missing that call, text or IM. The key is that the break allows you to breath and relax.  That's what is important. I also suggest taking one 5 minute break each hour, just stand up and walk around.
