Leaders and managers need to be coaches

Many managers and leaders spend their time working on specific tasks, rather than coaching their staff. They work hard to avoid being with the people who work for them.

Rob Balmer describes it as a destructive work environment, where staff quickly become disillusioned. It’s also, of course, hugely inefficient.

In this podcast Rob talks to Phil Dobbie about how to turn around your leadership style, so you spend more time managing people and the work they do, rather than doing the work yourself.
