VIDEO: Managers Must Make Coaching a Choice – Not an Obligation

Keith Rosen

The coaching relationship is a choice, not an obligation. The relationship between the coach and the people who are coached is a designed alliance, a collaborative partnership, and more.

A perk, an incentive, an option, an obligation, or a remedial response to underperformance?

Managers Don’t Know What Their People Are Doing. Powerful Observation Techniques to Better Coach Your Team to Excel

Keith Rosen

Do you know what your people are doing in the field? Really? Are you sure? In my experience, unless managers are in the field observing and listening to what their people are doing, they have no clue.

But when managers finally take the time to observe their people in the trenches, the real truth is (sometimes painfully) apparent.

Rethinking How To Determine a Person’s Coachability. Is it the Person Who’s Not Coachable or Is It More About the Ability of the Coach?

Keith Rosen

In my last blog and podcast, I need to rethink a critical caveat to the last bullet in the blog which was: How a manager can assess whether or not a person is, in fact coachable and when their coaching simply may not work.
