What Would You Do?

This week:

  • Dear TLW–
    Our managers need help with their coaching skills based on talking with employees, as well as feedback on our organizational culture survey.  We have designed a course that provides a basic model to follow for coaching…whether it’s coaching to develop others, reinforce behaviors, or redirect behaviors.  We have included a component that involves at least two skill practices.  We have not done anything like this before.  I know our managers…there will be some reluctance in doing the practices.  What would you suggest I do to ensure they have a positive and successful experience with this exercise?

Next week:

  • Dear TLW–
    Our organization is starting to rebound after this shaky economy.  We are adding a new member to the learning and development team.  He comes from a different organization, however, has a good amount of classroom training experience.  We are delighted he’s on the team.  My question…our manager has asked “Bob” to co-facilitate the new employee orientation program, as well as the customer service training, with me.  I’ve never co-facilitated before.  Even though it seems as if it could be fun and interesting for both me and the participants, are there certain guidelines Bob and I should consider as we work together?
