Teleos’ Tips for Coaching with Compassion:
1. Set a positive climate and setting. People react and learn best when they are in a positive environment that fosters respect, consistency, curiosity, and attentiveness. Being an encouraging coaching manager will create conditions that allow your employees to maximize their performance and potential, and develop both personally and professionally.
2. Focus on long-term development, not altering short-term performance. Coaching with compassion involves helping people bring more of their passions and aspirations to work.Take the time to teach and lead your employees. People are hard-wired to learn through relationships and by mirroring their mentors. Instead of expecting employees to change by reading or listening to information, take the time to teach and lead your employees through example.
3. Discover your employees’ personal goals. People are more likely to change when the change is tied to something they want. When you find out what your employees’ personal desires and aspirations are, you can build a deeper connection with them and help them form new habits. Your employees will be more likely to sustain change over time when it’s tied to their personal desires.
