The Coaching Habit

Say less, ask more, and become a better leader with proven techniques from one of the world’s top leadership coaches.

Good intentions aren't enough.

As a leader, you know the value of developing coaching skills. Good coaching can help your team increase their focus and capacity, reduce overwhelm and dependency, and drive both engagement and impact.

But even with the best of intentions, today's time-strapped managers and leaders often find themselves defaulting to a limited old-school management approach: solving problems for their direct reports rather than helping them figure out. Telling someone the answer instead of asking questions and helping them to solve it on their own perpetuates bottlenecks and leaves managers with just too much stuff on their plate.

The Coaching Habit is an innovative introduction to better coaching skills for managers and leaders. Beginning with a half-day session, the program includes three things that make the difference and help develop coaching skills as an everyday habit.

  • Understand how and why you’re tempted to give advice and solve problems
  • Recognize the price that you pay for doing so
  • Learn how to disarm your advice "hair trigger"

Theory, models and exhortations to "do more coaching" aren't going to make a difference. We need to help managers and leaders in developing the coaching skills with insights and support so that they change their behaviour and coaching becomes a habit – and a regular and useful part of their management repertoire.

Maximize your impact.

If you're a busy manager or leader, developing a strong coaching habit can help you work less hard and have more impact. Who doesn't want that? But building a new habit isn't necessarily easy. Have you heard the line "do it for 21 days and it becomes a habit"? Someone just made that up.

This introduction to coaching skills helps managers, executives and leaders of all levels understand how and why they're so quickly and easily tempted to jump in and be the advice-giver and the problem-solver – and the price that they (and the employees they're managing) pay for this. With this new understanding, it becomes easier for them to disarm the advice "hair-trigger" so that managers can use their coaching skills when the occasion calls for it. It helps develop coaching skills as an everyday habit.
