I came across the article below, and I find it interesting. It is becoming a new trend that managers in some Indian companies have personal coaches who accompany them at work to help them become great leaders.
In the article they say that the most important issues those coaches help managers to tackle are: (as quoted from the article)
“Some of the common problems that executives need help with these days are: how to manage time? How to have influence and garner support across organisation? How to motivate self and other team members? People issues are emerging as a key problem area, according to coaches. “
I find this as a very positive step. I wonder if any manager would accept to do that here in Egypt. The first thing any manager would think of when asking him to do so here is: “and look as if I do not know everything?? and seem in front of my employees as if I need help?? … NO WAY!! “
