It is no secret that the economy is a little unpredictable right now. With changing markets in a changing world, it is important that everyone prepare for the future and retirement—even if it still seems like light-years away.

Gallup’s recent report, State of the American Manager: Analytics and Advice for Leaders, provides an in-depth look at what characterizes great managers and examines the crucial links between talent, engagement, and vital business outcomes such as profitability and productivity.
Call to mind a great coach you admire. What does this coach do right? Perhaps, he or she is good at teaching the rules of the game or at determining which roles each person must play on the team. Maybe this coach is great at facilitating all team members to get along and play fair together. In addition, this coach probably knows how to get the most out of people through positive feedback and encouraging words.
Well, guess what? These same coaching skills are needed for managers in getting the most out of their people at work.
