Some of Michael’s take away top tips:
- Having effective communication skills are crucial in dynamic environments with lots of distractions
- The Coach (Leader/Manager) is a role model and needs to prepare for the conversation and set the right tone
- The aim of the conversation is to seek minor adjustments by giving, seeking and receiving feedback
- The participant knows in advance this is a feedback opportunity
- The participant knows in advance that 3 questions will be asked:
- What are we doing well?
- What should we stop doing?
- What can we do more of?
- Make it simple – the participant is in a dynamic environment with a lot of happening for them
- Participants don’t always hear the message
- Allow the participant to self identify and to contribute. They have suggestions, ideas and something to offer
- Get their buy-in to the process and the agreed outcomes
- Allow the participant to have some autonomy to make adjustments to the agreed outcomes because the environment in which they have to apply the agreed outcomes is a dynamic one
