Coaching expedites personal and professional growth because it helps create clarity, build confidence, and determine the next action steps to take. Unfortunately, even though most leaders know they should coach more, they too easily fall into the habit of advice giving and problem solving, or they ask a coaching question when they’re really wanting to be directive.
The good news is that anyone can become a great coach if they know how. Successful coaching conversations require 2 key things: a curious mindset and having a toolkit of expansive coaching questions.
In this podcast, Leadership Coach Deb Elbaum walks people through the secrets to being a great coach with lots of examples about what to do and what not to do. If you’re ready to be a coach to more effectively develop those around you, press the play button now.
