How to Keep Your People Through a Coaching Culture

You need to coach more. Coaching will engage your team. We need a coaching culture.” I always heard this in my corporate days as a leader, and I remember thinking, yes, I got it. I knew that coaching would make a difference for my team and that a coaching culture would shift the organization for the positive, but I had no idea how to influence this in such a big organization.

Not Sure Where to Begin With 2023 Development Planning?

A lot of leaders I talk with tell me about development planning time with a heavy sigh. It’s an additional piece of work in a world already too full where the to do list never seems to be done. And I get it. Without the time to reflect and focus that any planning process takes; development planning can feel like yet another hoop to jump through or checkbox to tick. So, if development planning for 2023 has you feeling a little overwhelmed, I’d like to reframe it so you can find the joy and meaning in it for you and your team.

LCI QUESTION OF THE WEEK

JUNE 3RD: What’s underneath that?

Sometimes as a coach, you may get a gut sense that the topic a person is exploring is just the tip of the iceberg and that something else might be under the surface. When you ask, “what’s underneath that” you may be helping someone peel back the onion and discover something even more important that they want to focus on. It may be nothing, but it never hurts to ask!

may 27th: What’s the best use of our time?

This is a helpful question to ask when someone has multiple things going on in their lives. It allows the person to pause and think about what is most important to them in that moment.

mAy 13th: What have you learned about yourself?

A great question for self-reflection and growth!

APRIL 29th: How are you, really?

Often, we use “how are you” as a transactional conversation starter, but don’t really take the time understand how someone really is. A great way to build trust is to ask how someone is and spend time listening to the real answer.
