Share a funny story of an on-the-job coaching gone wrong.
This contest is over, but there are lots of new ones! Watch our weekly contest update!
Due July 27th, 2012 -
Robert Half is kicking off another contest for their Don’t Let This Happen to You campaign. The theme this time around: career coaching gone awry.
Behind every great athlete is a dedicated coach. The same holds true for outstanding professionals. The most successful employees have been shaped by the managers and mentors they’ve had over the years. But not every worker has a José Mourinho, Bela Karolyi or Phil Jackson cheering them on from the sidelines. What if you have a micromanager, poor communicator or know-it-all boss instead of an all-star manager?
Create a humorous thirty to sixty (30-60) second video about career coaching gone wrong. Think about the least-effective on-the-job coaching experience you’ve ever had or can imagine.
Keep in mind that you don’t have to focus exclusively on individuals with supervisory responsibility. Some of the most inept leaders aren’t formal managers at all. Instead, they might be a project team lead, a mentor or simply a well-meaning but clueless peer.
