Coaching happens in conversation says Corry Robertson

In this episode of People at Work, Corry Robertson highlights how to coach through conversation, so that every interaction is future focused and results driven.

Do you have a habit of jumping in to find the answer for someone or solve their problem before they’ve had a chance? Well, stop it! 

According to Corry Robertson, it’s your job as a leader to help people find and express the answers that lie within them. Not give them the solution you’d prefer. 

In her opinion, if you’re being coachlike, then you should shift from giving advice to being of service, through conversation. Corry says coaching conversations are leadership in action, and we can all learn to be a coach—and a more effective leader.

In this episode of People at Work, Corry highlights how to coach through conversation, so that every interaction is future focused and results driven. We also talk about how to create a coaching culture in an organization and what this means for leaders at work.

So, if you’re thinking about what to brush up on as we take on a fresh new year, think about the character of your conversations. Who are you helping when you speak? Can you make a shift to become more coachlike, and be a leader in action? Bring it on, 2021!
