THE GREAT RESIGNATION

By Kevin Kirkle

You have likely heard or read about the concept of the Great Resignation over the course of the past few months.

Tips You Can Implement Now

1:1 Employee Coaching

Coaching expands beyond the field, court, or mat. According to a 2019 study from the ICF (International Coach Federation) and HCI (Human Capital Institute), employers with a strong coaching culture experience higher customer satisfaction, talent attraction, and labor productivity. While coaching takes time, it’s time well spent! Use these three tips to make your coaching conversations impactful:

  • Prepare: Create a list of several questions about a current project or challenge you will ask an employee.
  • Present: Identify how to be more present when speaking to employees (Ex: turn off your phone, close email, take the conversation away from the jobsite, etc.).
  • Provide: Write down 1-2 positive pieces of feedback to share with an employee this week.

THE ADVANTAGE

Answering the Tricky Question: What Type of Training is Best? 

By Kaitlyn Niechwiadowicz

“We need training.” This is a common phrase heard by leaders, and a phrase some leaders fear. Why? Training means employees are taken off the jobsite or shop floor. It means employees are no longer actively generating revenue. However, training is vital to the continued development and growth of your employees and organization. So how can you ensure employees’ time is well spent in training?
