The Madness Behind the Method (Teaching, Coaching, or Mentoring?)

Henry Ford once said, "The only thing worse than training your employees and having them leave is NOT training them and having them STAY!" This quote should make you take a closer look at the relational mindset in your company by asking yourself, "How can I improve my approach to educating and retaining my staff?" That's a good question. Have you considered whether you should be pulling them or pushing them? Are you depending more on adhesion or cohesion? Is your focus on attention (teaching), adjustment (coaching), or accomplishment (mentoring)? Find out how each of those three approaches can help you get to where you want to be from where you are right now. Discover the relevance of the six nodes of the "Mad Structural Matrix" (emphasis, focus, goal, approach, summary, and relationship) when it comes to rethinking and enhancing your professional development strategy. Learn how to tell whether you have a method behind the madness, or if it's more of a madness behind the method!
