A manager, same level as I, asks me to give him some coaching. We are colleagues. He struggles in some basic management situations. The manager is young, hungry and has the potential to grow. I would like to give him support to grow in his career.
He lacks of experience and training. We are reporting to the same general manager. Our manager itself, don't do o3, feedback or coaching. I don't want to "overrule" our managers bahavior. I'm not in the role to give my manager feedback. I'm not in the position to manage my colleague, because I'm not his manager. He's not working in my projects as a direct.
I now struggle how to proceed and need some advice.
My planned next step is to ask my manager for a meeting about people development in our departement. I would like to raise the request of his direct. I would like to offer mentoring and ask for his approval to proceed.
What are your thougts about that? Is there a cast about that?
