“Coaching” holds the belief that we’re trying to access the employee’s insight, not provide our own. Asking questions is essential. We need these key things in order to be effective at how we ask questions.
What you’ll learn from this episode:
- Several tools to help your coaching efforts with managers
- Some key things that are necessary in order to be good and effective at asking questions
- Using the Thought Model and the RAFT Process
- About a new community site for leaders and managers
Featured on the Show and Other Notes:
- Two other tools to help your coaching efforts with managers: A course called Coaching Skills for Managers that I co-created with UC Davis here and a “best of” series on coaching that is available on my website for $49. It includes a workbook and some great questions for managers to use in coaching conversations with their teams. You can find that here.
- Some other past podcasts you many find helpful on related topics: Managers and Coaching Algebra, Why You Have to Get Your Mind Right If You Want to Get Your Results Right and How to Coach Anyone on Anything
- Next year I’m starting a community/membership site where I make available content for managers and leaders. I’m looking for organizational partners who would like to be charter members and offer some of this work to their employees and work with me as a client. If you’re interested in that please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
