Michael Stern’s Coaching Moments:

  1. GETTING OUT OF THE WEEDS

    GETTING OUT OF THE WEEDS

    You’re already in a senior role; you’re already very successful. So why do you need coaching?

    I’m guessing there are one or two things you wish were different. Issues that that have been weighing on you, frustrating you, leaving you disappointed that you aren’t focusing more on the areas that really make a difference.

     

  2. THE PARADOX OF LEADERSHIP

    THE PARADOX OF LEADERSHIP

    The paradox of leadership is that as executives advance in their careers and their decisions become more crucial and impactful, development feedback becomes increasingly more important but more infrequent and more unreliable.

    As a result, many executives stop growing in critical interpersonal and leadership skills.

     

  3. BUILDING HIGH PERFORMANCE TEAMS

    BUILDING HIGH PERFORMANCE TEAMS

    Everyone talks about delegation, and everyone agrees that it’s a great idea. But it’s easier said than done. Effective delegation requires two elements: a leader who’s willing to give up some control and a high performing team to delegate to – a team of confident, capable executives who can work well together, handle the extra responsibility and deliver the results.

    A high performing team with strong, mutually-supportive relationships can have a huge impact on productivity and results.

     

  4. HOW TO SET A LOYALTY TRAP

    HOW TO SET A LOYALTY TRAP

    Most senior leaders proudly say: “People are our most important assets”. Truth is, only some of your people are key strategic assets. Most of the rest, by definition, are average or below- average performers. Are you treating them all the same? 

    It’s not just about the money. You want your best people to feel so well taken care of that they will have no interest in exploring other opportunities.

    But that takes work.
