The Goals of Leadership Coaching and PartnershipsWritten by CMOE Development Team

Employees also have responsibilities. Those who refuse to participate treat job mechanically, are disinterested, and in shared responsibility and authority many need to be dismissed – as compassionately and gracefully as possible. Others may need to be brought along slowly until they are helping solve job challenges and other problems.
Quality employees will perform whether a supervisor is watching over them or not. They recognize key to success is pulling together. Teamwork, mutual benefit, and trust are important guide words for them.
Sometimes building and maintaining a good partnership is not easy. Talking straight to your partner (whether it be a spouse, employee, or a manager) takes a lot of candor, skill, and courage. However, difficulties can be overcome, and in long run, benefits are worth effort.
When you come right down to it, employers and employees have a lot more in common than they have differences. They both can benefit by successful partnerships. As resources are used efficiently and accountability is embraced, salaries will improve through achievement as well as job satisfaction. Everything considered, good leadership coaching between manager and employee makes a lot of sense and is in best interest of both parties.

How to Get PromotedWritten by Leonard Konis

besides having a current resume. Dress formal and without excessive make-up, cologne, perfume or jewelry worn. Practice at home, in front of a mirror or people, how you will present yourself, during interview. Keep your answers short and to point, except if further inquiry is requested. Avoid, saying any negative comments about any coworkers or any other candidates seeking same position. Show your enthusiasm for position you desire, but not a ridiculous manner. Tell how well you get along with your coworkers. And, how you have helped your coworkers, perform better in their jobs, based upon your suggestions, and created a more happier, working environment. Provide suggestions, what you would accomplish, if promoted to new position, and a willingness to travel, for business trips, if necessary. Let your interviewer(s), know of your educational degrees. Finally, don't make it seem, like a “life or death situation”, being considered for new promotion, but always try to have other options available, if you are not considered for promotion. Including continuing your current position or being hired by another company. During interview, never threaten to leave your job, if your not promoted, since that shows your arrogance. You certainly have that option, if you decide to pursue that later. As cliché often offers to “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know” that gets you promoted, which is final thought. After interview, always acknowledge how you appreciated time, taken for your consideration. And, shake hands of each interviewer, before you leave. Walk away, feeling optimistic or enthusiastic, if you receive notification, of your promotion, before you leave.
