An Outline and 5 Tips for Positive Coaching

"I am convinced that nothing we do is more important than hiring and developing people.

At the end of the day, you bet on people, not on strategies."  Lawrence Bossidy

When I was a vice president of a hospital, it was our customary practice for the CEO to always be committed to a coaching need for each member of his team. There was never a point in which he stopped coaching us. There was never a point when he simply gave in to "there is nothing more you can do to grow and develop as a member of this team or organization." It felt really good to have him assess and evaluate my performance, knowledge, and skill set -- and then commit and invest in my professional growth. Yet, too often, coaching from a boss doesn't always feel this good. How can you make coaching a positive force in your leadership?

As a leader, likely you can identify at least one clear and convincing coaching need for each employee on your team. If you’ve been rounding with your employees on a systematic basis, you likely have developed great relationships, and understanding, of your employees. This will serve you well as you fulfill your leadership role to provide them with regular feedback and coaching.
