Create a Training Infrastructure for Your Managers

Neil Capel // Founder and CEO of Sailthru

"We have coaching programs for every manager. We have one-on-one coaching for new managers for a six week period and then we move onto a peer coaching program whereby they hold each other accountable so they can build a group and discuss how they handle things. We're trying to build a coaching infrastructure....In a lot of companies management is top down and it's the responsibility of the manager to engage an employee and get them to perform...We put a lot of responsibility on the actual manager as the person who's going to bring the employee to the next level."
