Supervisors across the US perceive coaching to be a threatening and time-hungry monster that demands perfection and eats away at their schedules. This misconception, however, could cost managers one of their most rewarding and effective leadership experiences. If supervisors learn to turn routine office interactions into coaching interactions, they could tame the coaching beast and eliminate extraneous outsourcing costs. In addition, supervisors can use the coaching process to build positive relationships with their direct reports, therefore improving employee engagement and retention. Organizations that set clear expectations and offer rewards tied to managers' coaching will foster a culture that encourages managers to teach colleagues.
