Anytime Coaching

Anytime Coaching

Being a leader in today’s dynamic, results-driven organizations is tough. It is crucial for all members of your team to be highly engaged and personally motivated to do their best work in order to achieve team or organizational goals.

As a leader, you must ensure your team’s collective talents are used, while, at the same time, they are learning new skills needed to push the performance envelope. With only so many hours in the day and competing priorities, how is it possible?

Anytime Coaching is a set of practices designed to help leaders guide the work of others in a way that not only unleashes their best current thinking but also enables them to build new skills and develop their full potential.

 

Unlike traditional coaching sessions, which are often reserved for particularly challenging workplace problems, Anytime Coaching conversations are meant to happen anytime, anywhere. The approach is centered around four communication practices that help you create short yet meaningful coaching moments each day in a variety of workplace situations:


Observing
