This week is part 2 in the five-part series: 5 Easy Secrets to Coach Your Team.
Last week the topic was about strategies to use a code of conduct.
Here’s the link for you if you missed it.
Team Coaching Secret #2: The Team Will Not Be Happy All of the Time
- At times team members will be put on the spot
- Direct communication (with respect) is part of the Code of Honor
- The code will protect everyone on the team from abuse as long as bold honesty, accountability, and support exit.
Thoughts From Joyce
It’s important for you to have a trained coach or consultant to conduct your code of conduct because there may be times that pushback is prevalent – especially if you have bullies or rude people on your team. Everyone is responsible to call out team members when the code is broken.
- Remember, the code is made by the team.
- Everyone must play by the same rules.
- Team members are willing to stand up and defend the code.
Pushback must be stopped immediately because the team already agreed with each other by creating the code of conduct. This is where a coach or trained consultant can jump right in before things get out of hand. It could be a good coaching moment with the person who pushes back. He or she needs to think outside the box and realize that egos are not part of the code. This is the only way that the strategy will succeed.
Leaders can deal with the person who pushes back. It could be a red flag that the angry team member is not a good fit for the company. It’s not all about you. It’s about the code.
