COACHING TIPS FOR THE COACH/TRAINER

This exercise provides some unique opportunities for leaders to look at themselves through the eyes of their employees. The most important point in the exercise for you, the trainer/coach, is to be sure that the right tone is set for doing this.

The exercise asks the leader to evaluate whether or not he is a good leader and contributor in the eyes of the employees. Most leaders will probably think they are good contributors; however, the important point in this exercise is whether or not the employee would see them as a good contributor. Why is this important? Because the employee's view in this case may speak to issues, concerns, or expectations that the employee feels the leader is not meeting. Just as leaders become resentful if employees are not meeting their expectations, employees also become resentful if they think the leader is not meeting the expectations of the employees. However, just as we know that sometimes the reason that employees do not meet expectations is due to a lack of understanding of the expectation, the same may be true for the leader. Of course, communication is critical. However, the first step is honest assessment.
