The Right Fit

Leader of People or Individual Contributor?

Robert was the best engineer in the supply chain business and had steady promotions over 15 years.

Now charged with overseeing 70 people, people complained to him that they never saw him, he was always in his office, and they were not receiving clear instructions.

Fearful of failing, he welcomed coaching as an opportunity to identify his strengths, build better relationships and hold others accountable.

What happened in the coaching?
The coach did a "360" assessment, soliciting confidential feedback from his colleagues and prepared a feedback report for him highlighting his strengths and areas for development. She provided him structured exercises to assess his passions and key skills.

Through this deep dive assessment with her, he discovered he loved the analytic work, "coming up with the brilliant solution," and preferred delegating the team management to a very able second in command. He learned in the coaching how to gain his manager's support for his new role and reorganized his team.

Outcome
Robert was relieved to let go of the team leadership and concentrate on what he did best. His drive and excitement about the work returned. The firm was delighted to preserve his exceptional talent and creativity without which they could not succeed.
