Real Time Coaching


"Coaching is like the old Martini adverts"


Real Time Coaching


One of the things I enjoy most is helping people leaders develop simple coaching skills to allow them to become better leaders and ultimately to help their people become better at what they do, how they think, behave and feel.

Coaching is like the old Martini adverts (for those of you who can remember those adverts, I understand they were rather good!). Anyway, the strap line for the Martini advert was “Anywhere, anytime, anyplace”. That’s how I think about coaching; it can be used anytime, anyplace, anywhere.

A few simple tips to bear in mind for real time coaching conversations (This can take less than 5 minutes):

  1. Utilise active “whole body” listening (See my previous post on this)

  2. Is what you are seeing (body language / facial expressions) congruent with what you are hearing (The words that are spoken)



Questions to ask:

  • So, tell me, what’s going on?

  • What went well?

  • What didn’t go as well as expected?

  • What did you learn?

  • And, what else did you learn?

  • What could you do differently next time?

  • And, what else could you do?

  • Do you need any help?
