The Elements of Every Great Coaching Conversation

Having regular coaching conversations with your direct reports can do wonders for not only the quality of their day-to-day work, but also their growth and development.

Here are four ways to make coaching conversations great:
Keep a regular schedule
Don’t make your coaching conversations come out of the blue. Make them regular occurrences that both you and your direct report can look forward to.
Try 45 minutes a week.

Ask questions
Questions make people think. As a manager/coach, you want your direct reports to come to their own conclusions as much as possible, because they’ll be more likely to be passionate about ideas that are theirs. So ask as many questions as possible.
