Simple Steps for Coaching A-Players

Simple Steps for Coaching A-Players

Here are three simple steps you can take to retain your A-player employees and get the best results from them:

1. Take time to discuss individual goals. Employees, particularly younger employees, are hungry for mentoring. Taking the time to have lunch with a high-value employee and listen to their goals can help that person feel valued. Make an effort to help that person achieve his or her goals. I have seen this make a big difference in the attitude and morale of key people on a staff.

2. Make people feel like insiders. The best bosses will often call someone into their office to share important information. They make their best employees feel important by sharing important information with them in an appropriate way.

3. Beware trying to be your employees’ buddy. One of the ways to ruin the morale of your staff is to attempt to be their buddy vs. being their boss. People want their boss to act like an adult and take responsibility. If you refuse to do so, your people end up feeling like no one is in charge – and that will always hurt morale.
