"The problem is that many managers and mid-managers tend to only criticize
and punish," noted Dr. Calmas. He continued, "This creates an environment of
fear and establishes a communication barrier. Staffers become defensive,
then productivity and creativity gets stifled. Employee turnover becomes
the norm."

He concluded, "Like athletes, business people need coaching to achieve
greater success. Athletes want to be coached to become winners. Executives,
entrepreneurs and managers resist being coached and in turn, do not
understand how to coach their staff who are looking for ways to excel at
their jobs, to work up to their potential and to remove the obstacles to
their success."

Dr. Calmas has worked with a broad range of clients, including New York
Life, Merrill Lynch, Mazonson and Oppenheimer. He has developed programs
for increasing productivity, reducing employee turnover and resolving
conflicts between staff members.
