21 Tips for Coaching Your Underachieving Employees

Underachieving, disengaged, and unfocused employees can suck the life out of you and your department. Just as technical research and development is essential for a competitive edge, it’s important to remember that coaches are developed, not born. They have acquired the skills and attitude over time until they have a coaching style of their own. Your job is to give underachievers every tool you can in order to maximize their ability to contribute. But the expectation level must be clearly identified and the proper help given.

Effective coaches take responsibility for helping build commitment to the goals of the organization. They know what to do when team members are underachievers, and they know what to say and what not to say as well as when to back off. They are confident in their abilities to lead others from start to finish. Coaches know how to tap into and optimize talent to improve employee performance.

This webinar offers a vital message for anyone who wants to raise the bar and learn more about coaching underachievers, building partnerships and becoming the kind of coach that others look to for support and encouragement. Highlights of this high-content webinar include how to:

  • Make coaching a part of who you are as a leader.
  • Determine the underachiever’s coaching needs.

  • Deliver high-impact feedback to help employees correct problems before they become bad habits
  • Meet the challenges of coaching head-on, and coach with understanding and compassion.
  • Conduct a performance improvement session with the goal of helping employees make the needed changes.
