Effective Coaching in the Workplace

Video Blog


As a leader of a group, a team or an organization you must remember to focus on the impact you have on the audience.  When you are coaching or evaluating your own interactions, do not focus on how you delivered the message (what you said or what you did), focus on the reaction you see.  That is the true test of a productive session.

Regardless of the vehicle used to coach (a story, an assignment, a book to read), evaluate how the individuals react.  Pay close attention to how your message is received.  You should see a change in behavior, higher set of values or attitudes or change in direction. If not, choose a different vehicle or change the message.

Some questions to consider:
  • Do you take time to ask questions or observe the effect of your interactions with your team?
  • Do you start your coaching sessions with a goal in mind? How do you communicate the goal?
  • Do you experiment with the vehicles used to communicate with your team to get better results?
