Win Forever with Great Coaching!
“I love trophies, but forget ’em. They’re for old men, for guys living in memory. I’m talking about: Are we competing today, every minute, in everything we do in practice? Are we letting loose and daring to be great here and now? And can we sustain that? And repeat it? Trophies are great, but we’re trying to win forever.”
Managers are not always aware of the value and benefits of regular coaching meetings. Because these meetings are associated with performance issues, they can be seen as difficult or confrontational interactions.
But, when acknowledged immediately, and worked through with managers’ guidance, performance issues (and coaching meetings) can be opportunities for not just better performance, but a healthier work-life and an unobstructed career path.
But what makes for an effective coaching meeting? There are all kinds of performance issues; all kinds of employees, teams, and managers. How can an effective meeting be planned when there are so many variables to consider?
HRDQ’s Coaching Skills Inventory presents a model for effective coaching meetings that’s based on years of behavioral science research, and has been actively improving management and team performance for 20 years.
Setting out a simple, effective, 7-step model for coaching meetings, the Coaching Skills Inventory measures the abilities of managers in 6 key skills areas necessary for effective coaching. When it comes to soft skills, self-assessment is a very powerful tool. Not only does the Coaching Skills Inventory let you know where you stand, it lets you know where to go next. By breaking coaching skills down into 6 sets, this assessment provides specific avenues for improvement – pinpointing the strengths and weaknesses of each coach, and letting them plan a direct course to better performance.
Once you’ve got your coaching on track, you’ll be well on your way towards better performance and a healthier environment throughout your organization. Remind your team of the importance of coaching meetings with the Coaching Skills Inventory – get started today:
