Have you ever had to work alongside an individual whose behavior has affected the performance of the whole team? Maybe you still do. Perhaps you recognize this trait in yourself. When a team is trying to work together cohesively and collaboratively, just one person who behaves in an undesirable way can have a detrimental effect across the organization. Working with a behavioral coach gets the team to recognize and acknowledge how their moods affect everyone else, and the outcome is improved corporate effectiveness. Here are three reasons why that benefits all.
Better Relationships With Colleagues
One of Gallup 12’s identified measures of employee engagement is that employees can answer the question positively, “I have a best friend at work.” However, a team member who behaves in a way that makes their colleagues feel uncomfortable can rarely answer this. Corporate effectiveness coaching can help an individual who is aware of their problematic behaviors and is ready to change them. The result is that they become better respected and even well-liked by the rest of the workplace, earning them that friend.
More Productive Team
When a team can work to the best of their abilities without the distraction of a disruptive colleague, their productivity substantially increases. This not only benefits the group as it becomes more successful but also helps motivate the individual team member now working for a high-performing division. And, of course, the business overall will be more prosperous as a result.
When someone in the workspace becomes known as being a difficult entity, their career progression stalls. They may be passed over for promotion, or even demoted to a lower position or less desirable role. In a worst-case situation, they may become known for their behavior within the industry. Professional coaching can turn their life around, both professionally and personally.
Working with a skilled professional turns what could be difficult conversations at work into an opportunity to grow, both individually and as a team.
