Comments are closed. Seniormanagers can benefit from both internal and external advice, by Julian AvissSenior managers and high-fliers often want specific help on certain issues.Rather than opening themselves up in front of a group of peers, many find itsafer to talk these issues through with a coach whom they respect and trust.Often the coach is either an internal HR practitioner or an externalspecialist. But there is no reason why senior managers cannot have both. The escalating interest in executive coaching provides a real opportunityfor HR practitioners to extend their sphere of influence. Those in HR arealready well placed to provide an internal coaching role, offering seniormanagers a different perspective, challenging them and encouraging them toconfront the performance issues they need to address. Such a relationship can be informal. It does not necessarily need a specific”contract” covering issues such as where to meet, how often, for howlong or prior agreement on the specific focus and goals of each session. Senior managers generally want more than an internal sounding board who is a”good egg” and can empathise. They want someone credible, withexperience and an understanding of the business who can give praise andpositive feedback and also add value. If you are a trusted, respected individual who can listen and steer people’sthoughts about their own performance, you can enhance your internal profile byfostering these ad hoc relationships. However, if the person being coached isto benefit, you must realise your own limitations. Roffey Park is publishing a management discussion paper this week whichidentifies the key aspects of corporate coaching and describes the process as acontroversial meld of consultancy and psychotherapy. Certainly, coaching crosses the boundaries between counselling andmentoring. It is important to know which role an HR professional is providing.For example, if personal issues are being introduced, there is a real dangerthat you may – if you are not a trained counsellor – enter territories beyondyour expertise. It takes a high level of self-awareness to recognise that your manager maybenefit from an external perspective. It takes an even greater amount ofself-confidence to advise the person being coached that someone else may bebetter suited to helping them with these issues. Such honesty may come as a relief. If it involves a senior person who needsto come to terms with issues relating to their own behaviour, self-confidenceor self-esteem – or improve their management of personal relation- ships atwork – they may prefer to talk to someone who is perceived as more impartial. By recommending that the high-flier also gains an external perspective, youare not severing your relationship. It is possible to create a coachingtriumvirate, working in partnership with an external coach to provide acost-effective and timely solution to the coachee’s needs. HR practitioners must overcome any insecurities when working in conjunctionwith an external specialist. The internal and external coaches must trust eachother and ensure they are working to the same agenda. The external coach needs to be clear about what development interventionsare available internally. He or she may also need a knowledge of the internalrelationships to know which issues would be better addressed by the internalcoach. As with any coaching relationship, the coaches must aim for the employee tobecome independent, so the issues of dependency and closure must be clarifiedat the outset. With the right blend of individuals and firmly established boundaries, atriumvirate app-roach to executive coaching can be a most effective way to helpsenior managers further improve their performance at work.

The Nelson Selects finished seventh overall at the BC Soccer Les Sinnott Memorial U15 Boys Provincial B Cup Tournament Sunday in 100 Mile House.Nelson bounced Quesnel 3-0 in Consolation Round action.”As disappointing as the tournament was, there was an encouraging aspect,” said Nelson skipper Kerry Dyck.”None of the teams we played were out of our class, and I feel next year, if we work on improving our shooting, eliminate the errors and have a healthy roster, we have every reason to believe we can do very well.”Nelson entered the tournament up against the wall from the opening whistle.Nelson opened with a few injury issues, most notably to number one striker. The player, unable to play in the tournament, accounted for close to half of our goals during the year. The Selects then lost its top keeper to injury after the second game and second leading scorer from the season.Nelson lost 5-0 to Langley United in the opener Thursday before dropping a tough 2-1 decision to Sanich Fusion Friday.The Selects concluded the tournament Saturday with a 1-0 setback to Bulkley Valley Rapids.”We generated 15 and a whopping 24 attempts on goal, respectively, in those two games, but only converted a single goal,” Dyck explained.”We were definitely missing our number one striker, who I am certain would have scored on many of the chances that we missed, had he been able to play.”However, Nelson was able to rally to leave 100 Mile House with a victory.”Again we dominated, with another 24 shots (15 on target, 9 off) to their 6 (none of which were on target) and at least this time we managed to score on 3 of our shots,” Dyck said.”Even at that, finishing was still an issue that we will have to work on, as we should have had at least double the goals in that game. “But it was nice for the boys to at least end on a win.”
GEORGETOWN, Guyana (CMC): Test spinners Veerasammy Permaul and Devendra Bishoo bowled Guyana Jaguars to an emphatic innings and 54-run win over Jamaica Scorpions and to their second Headley-Weekes Trophy in as many seasons here yesterday. Starting the penultimate day well poised for victory with Scorpions on 171 for five in their first innings, Jaguars bowled the visitors out for 231, then bundled them out again for a paltry 134 in their second innings after enforcing the follow-on, to pull off a resounding victory at the National Stadium. Left-arm spinner Permaul claimed five for 36 and leg-spinner Bishoo, three for 43, as they combined to wreck the Scorpions second innings. Andre McCarthy, with 21, was the only player to make it past 20 in a miserable batting effort. Jaguars, who entered the final round seven points ahead of main challengers Barbados Pride, ended the season on 149 points while Pride, who also won by an innings over Leeward Islands Hurricanes in Basseterre, finished on 142 points. The title conquest was a historic one as it marked the first time Guyana had ever won back-to-back four-day titles and captain Leon Johnson said Jaguars were thrilled. “We’re very proud. We’re very happy about it,” Johnson said afterwards. “We put in a lot of hard work, not just this season but last season and it has paid off.” He added: “I think this year we played better than we did last year. We managed to be unbeaten (while) last year we lost a game and drew one so I think we learnt a lot from that and brought it into this year’s competition and you can see the rewards of that.” Jaguars were clinical in the morning session, removing the last five Scorpions wickets for 60 runs to end the innings on the stroke of lunch. Meanwhile, Test left-arm spinner Jomel Warrican proved his worth with a six-wicket second innings haul as Barbados Pride pulled off an emphatic innings and 93-run victory over Leeward Islands Hurricanes. Warrican claimed six for 102 to finish as Hurricanes, resuming the day at Warner Park on 18 for one, were dismissed for 224 on the stroke of the scheduled tea interval. He finished with match figures of nine for 135. Captain Orlando Peters top-scored with 60, Jahmar Hamilton got 33 and Jeremiah Louis 26, but Hurricanes failed to recover significantly after plunging to 82 for five just before lunch. AT THE NATIONAL CRICKET CENTRE IN COUVA, Trinidad: Windward Islands Volcanoes, set 166 for victory, reached eight without loss against Trinidad and Tobago Red Force yesterday.

VOLCANOES 289 (Devon Smith 127, Tyrone Theophile 75, Kyle Mayers 37; Imran Khan 4-93, Rayad Emrit 3-59, Jon-Russ Jagessar 3-74) and eight without loss.

Amid low footfalls at the newly built Kartarpur Corridor, Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh has asked the “cash-rich”’ Shiromani Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee (SGPC) to pay the $20 per pilgrim fee out of its coffers. Capt. Amarinder has also urged the Prime Ministers of both India and Pakistan to waive the passport condition for travel through the corridor and instead accept other forms of identity. ‘No visa to be stamped’“These should be acceptable since there was no requirement of visa to be stamped on the passport in any case,” he said.“The low number of devotees reportedly crossing over to the historic gurdwara was not because of lack of interest among the people but because of the two conditions of passport and $20 fee. Lakhs of pilgrims were waiting to visit the Kartarpur Gurdwara on this historic 550th Prakash Purb of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji but were held back because of these problems,” he added.“Though Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan had tweeted before the opening of the corridor that passport would not be needed for devotees to come through, the decision was not formalised,” Capt. Amarinder pointed out. He urged Mr. Khan, as well as Mr. Modi, to resolve the problem by coming to an agreement to amend the MoU requirement for passport to travel through the corridor.‘Flush with funds’Pointing to the lavish spendings of the SGPC on holding separate programmes to commemorate the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nana Dev Ji, the Chief Minister said it was evident that the religious body was flush with funds. “However, instead of flaunting their money to appease their ego and make a political point through this religious occasion, they should spend the same on supporting the devotees, especially the poor ‘yellow card’ holders who simply did not have the money to pay the necessary fee to Pakistan for entering their territory and pay obeisance at the Kartarpur Sahib Gurdwara,” he said.Aam Aadmi Party senior leader and Leader of the Opposition Harpal Singh Cheema also demanded that the government simplify the process to travel to Kartarpur by lifting the mandatory passport condition.

OTTAWA – First Nova Scotia’s Jamie Baillie, then Ontario’s Patrick Brown, and finally Ottawa’s Kent Hehr.The toppling of three politicians in the space of two days obliterated all other talk around federal politics this week, reverberating through caucus meetings in Victoria and Ottawa, and reaching the prime minister during his trip to Davos, Switzerland.While circumstances around each man’s downfall are dramatically different, they all link to allegations of sexual misconduct — and have prompted politicians of all stripes to take a hard look at what happens behind closed doors.Whether the introspection will turn into better working conditions for women in politics and young staffers, or whether it will turn into a tit-for-tat leaking of lurid tales is an open question.Drowned out by the scandals were developments on mail delivery, opportunities for trade and investment with Asia, and the taking root of a Canadian brand of populism.Here’s how politics mattered this week:OF CANADA POST AND ELECTION PROMISESHome delivery was a contentious issue in the 2015 election campaign after the Conservatives moved to halt it and replace the service with community mail boxes that residents would have to walk to.This week, the Liberals rolled out their response. After many months of consultation and close scrutiny of the numbers, they say they will not convert any more home delivery routes to community mail boxes. More controversially, however, they also say they won’t “put the tooth paste back in the tube” by restoring the conversions of 840,000 households that have already taken place.Not going ahead with the Conservative plan to eliminate door-to-door delivery means foregoing $350 million a year in savings. But the Liberals say they are giving Canada Post new freedoms and incentives to spread its wings and compete on parcels, on remittances, and off-hour deliveries.Does all this mean Justin Trudeau has kept an election promise? Many voters had the impression — from comments made by Trudeau and his team — that home delivery would be completely restored. The Liberals’ election platform promises to “save home mail delivery.”OF FREE TRADE WITH JAPANIn the wee hours of Tuesday morning, as Trudeau was consorting with the rich and famous in Davos and the bulk of Canada’s trade negotiators were holed up in Montreal for the renewal of NAFTA, Canadian officials in Japan agreed to sign on to a massive trade and investment agreement with Asia-Pacific countries.The treaty will give Canada free trade with some of the world’s most dynamic economies — Japan, Australia, Vietnam. But the cheers of joy have been tempered in Canada by concerns about secrecy, and an outcry from the auto sector and dairy farmers.Canada held off signing on to the deal late last year because of concerns about the cultural and auto industries. It came away this week with a cultural exemption in hand.On the auto front, officials point to a side deal with Japan that will protect Canada’s interests. But since that bilateral agreement has yet to be made public, the auto sector and its unions fear for the worst — at a time when the NAFTA negotiators in Montreal are also under pressure to make concessions on auto manufacturing.OF CANADA-STYLE POPULISMFormer Conservative leadership contender and MP Kellie Leitch announced this week she would not seek re-election, and massive new polling and research by EKOS and The Canadian Press could give some insight as to why.During her ill-fated leadership campaign, Leitch did not hesitate to invoke Donald Trump. She advocated screening immigrants for so-called Canadian values, and made no bones about adopting some of Trump’s populist tactics. She finished sixth.Research published this week shows that populism may have a foothold in Canada, but it’s unique and doesn’t exactly replicate forces that drove voters to choose Trump.EKOS Research took polls involving 12,604 people who discussed their opinions on economics, culture, openness towards the world and towards immigration. The polling firm formed an index that plotted the respondents according to how “open” or how “ordered” they preferred their world to be.Fewer than half are on the “open” side of the spectrum. About 30 per cent are “ordered” — feeling economically and culturally insecure. And about 25 per cent have a mixed view.The 30 per per cent of “ordered” respondents is not generally linked to race or immigration. Rather, there is a stronger correlation with education, income and hopes for the next generation.
