Step Up and Coach Your Teams for Success!

Categories: CIO, Coach, Mentor, Stakeholders

Coaching and mentoring is one the many aspects of a project/program manager’s responsibility.  Great project /program managers will use various tools and techniques on their projects to acquire swift trust, manage stakeholder expectations and establish relationships.  

 Many organizations today will arrange, through their project management office or in their divisions; a teaming approach to have a project/program manager mentor a new , junior or seasoned project manager.  This can be very helpful to transfer knowledge, manage and control the risk on projects and provide oversight and guidance to a project manager at any time in their career path.  Also, many times organizations lack experienced project managers and/or resources to provide internal staff with mentoring opportunities and seek outsourced consulting firms with project management expertise.

 A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to speak with Al Amador, principle consultant from The Table Group, a Patrick Lencioni Company.  Al works with many customers in Northern California to help their organizations be more effective by consulting and sharing techniques to coach and mentor their teams for success.

 Al recommends focusing on these four key areas for coaching and mentoring teams for success:

  1.  Trust
  2. Conflict
  3. Maintaining or Improving Accountability
  4. Maintaining or Improving Results

 You can download the Al Amador’s tips and exercises on coaching and mentoring in the Leadership GIG.
