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.
