Success in one position doesn’t necessarily ensure outstanding performance in the next assignment. Candidates who want to move up in an organization often need to assess what is working in the current assignment that may not be successful in the next as well as the specific requirements of the new job.
Dealing with Performance Issues
Often performance issues aren’t as clear as one might think. People with significant potential leave it on the table. Individuals with strong performance histories suddenly stop delivering the expected results. The key question is why? What is the root issue? Skill? Willingness? Physical or emotional stress and distraction? EQ/judgment/maturity? Defining the gap between expected and actual performance and identifying the root cause(s) of that gap lead to a results-based action plan for growth.
It’s not untypical for teammates to have experience interpersonal tension, low levels of alignment, or even conflict. Often such interpersonal dysfunction bleeds off the potential synergy as attention turns inward rather than outward to the assigned goals. Triaxia coaches are experienced team and interpersonal facilitators. They can help teams and team members nail down root issues and develop effective processes for turning destructive conflict into constructive dialogue and straight-talk.
Equipping Managers to Effectively Coach Staff
Wider spans of control, global organizations with distributed work forces, virtual teams, the intense focus on short-term results, and the changing social contract between companies and their workforces have forever changed the old paradigm of the manager-coach (See Article: A Changing Paradigm of Management). Triaxia can quickly and effectively help managers apply the principles of results-based coaching in their business units for accelerated talent development and business results against the reality of a much changed organizational context.
