Each one of us is a coach.
We coach our teammates in getting started and handling challenges that crop up while building their businesses. This is an integral part of building a team.
Here is the key question: What is the one sentence or 5-6 key words that describe your advice and approach?
Here are some questions to explore that idea.
Think about teammates (or sideline) distributors whom you have advised. What compliments have they given you regarding your past advice?
Do you emphasize short-term results or long-term outlook? Which one is more important?
Do you use the flyers, videos, and other tools your company provides, or do you make your own?
Do you have a my-way-or-the-highway approach, or do you discuss the next steps (and get agreement) before giving the next assignment?
How often will you meet in person/message/discuss via telephone or videoconferencing?…. a set time (every 7 days?) or as soon as they complete the assignment?
If the coaching client asks you to hold them accountable, what do you say and do if they don’t meet the goals set in the previous session? How many times will you set a new session if the previous session’s goals are not met?
Do you respond quickly to questions/updates between sessions, or do you wait until the next session?
When will the coaching end? … a set number of sessions, predetermined length of time, specific goals being met, a set number of missed sessions or incomplete assignments, or a breach of the initial agreement?
Whatever your answers, I suggest you discuss your approach with anyone who requests coaching from you. The conversation will clarify whether the guidance they seek is a good match for your approach.
