Tips on working with your coach!

Delighted and honored to be working with team leaders at Automattic on a coaching pilot program which was launched this fall. As we only have one hour together I try to squeeze as much value into the time we have. Are you working with a coach or thinking about it?

If so, here are some tips on how to get the best out of your coaching experience!

  • Bring real life issues that you want help with
  • Understand that you drive the agenda
  • Ask for what you need
  • Ask questions if you don’t understand
  • Skip the small talk and dive in deep
  • Be comfortable with the silence; coaches stay quiet to give you time to think and reflect
  • Share your fears
  • Be comfortable with being a bit vulnerable, it’s a confidential relationship!
