Coaching for success. When an employee comes to you with a problem do you do the fast and efficient thing by providing the solution? While it is efficient, this approach doesn’t build skills and it doesn’t demonstrate to employees that they are valued.

Instead, coach them on how to solve the problem and you help employees become more competent and more engaged. Try asking these questions:

  • What have you tried so far?
  • What are the possible solutions?
  • What else do you need in order to proceed?

Provide questions, provide resources, but try not to provide the answer. You might be surprised to discover that their solution is more elegant than yours!


Each week thousands of readers receive short emails that offer tips that can range from thought-provoking to fun and simple to implement.  They are both valuable and completely free!
