So why do you care what I have to say? You don’t know me, I’m not famous and I’ve never even been on TV.
Well the one thing I do have is experience and that my friends is the key to making me an expert in my field. Malcolm Gladwell’s 10,000-hour rule, which in truth I don’t necessarily agree with completely, does for this purpose validate my claims, so I will use it for my own benefit here! If 10,000 hours is the magic number for being an expert in your chosen field (again I’m paraphrasing here for my own purposes), well I have nearly 25,000 hours’ management experience, a figure that is growing every year. This by my own calculation makes me an ULTRA expert!
Out of that total I would estimate 15% has been in One 2 One coaching scenarios, improving performance, carrying out disciplinary reviews, completing return to work interviews and recruiting.
I have the experience and the hours of practice to help you; I have made mistakes and you will too but hopefully I can help you learn from my mistakes and move forwards. It is ok to make mistakes as long as you don’t make the same ones twice.
