How many times have you launched into a conversation that did not have a clearly defined outcome in mind? I’ve found that 80% of the success of a coaching appointment is determined in the first 5 minutes. It is during that phase when the coach helps a leader define what they want to achieve.
Here are three questions you can use to help leaders focus:
- What do you want to focus on today?
- What would you like to leave with from today?
- What would a “win” look like for you today?
