When was the last time you learned how to do something new?
· Was it how to play an instrument?
· To drive to a new location?
· Or perhaps, how to use a new piece of software?
How did you learn to do that? Watching someone else, listening to give directions, reading the manual or jumping in and trying it?
Everyone learns differently – assuming that each of your team members learns the same way as you is not the best plan of action. (You know what they say about ass-u-me-ing!)
This week, ask your coachee how they like to learn and see if you can adapt your coaching style to theirs.
