COACHING TIPS FOR THE COACH/TRAINER

The worker/leader relationship is filled with expectations. Most leaders have been given instruction on how to set expectations with employees. However, very seldom has the leader been given much assistance on soliciting expectations from employees. Therefore, often, employees feel that the relationship is one sided. And in reality, it is; the employees are hired to do a job, and if they don't do it, the company has no need for them.

However, the emotionally intelligent leader recognizes that she has much to gain by being an equal participant in the relationship. Equal participation, however, means that not only does the leader have expectations that she can set for the employees, but that the leader must be open to expectations that the employees have for the leader. These expectations should be discussed up front and be open for evaluation. (The fact of the matter is that employees have expectations of the leader regardless of whether or not the leader is aware of the expectations. The emotionally astute leader simply knows that it is better if she knows what those expectations are.)
