Coaching is the practice of revealing to a person the best version of themselves. It’s when we’re able to see and hear beliefs inside of someone that are interfering with their ability to perform.
What you’ll learn from this episode:
- Two things have to be out of the way in order to be a really good coach – judgement and a personal or emotional attachment to the person we’re coaching.
- One of the key tools for coaching is asking questions.
- As a manager, it isn’t your job to change people. It is your job to invest in them, to develop them, to coach them and to be clear about expectations and to hold them accountable.
- When you coach effectively, you boost engagement on the team and you boost accountability on the team. Then ultimately you have a high performing team.
- Effective and successful coaches have a reputation. People know that by interacting with them, they get better.
