Expanding a Coaching Relationship  

After a coaching relationship is established, at some point the conversation can become stale. Take advantage of this situation by asking the coachee to coach YOU.

Here are some ideas to try:

  • Have them watch you do their job and coach you
  • Communicate something you’re working on and ask for their observations
  • Try out some verbiage: “What would you think if I said X?”

Coaching is a two-way conversation. This approach increases your permission to coach the employee.
