This week, I will talk about a specific skill that you need to develop to create a high-performing team. 

The skill is coaching.

So, how can you use your coaching skills to build a high-performing team?  

Well, as a leader, you need to use coaching to help the people on your team to:

  • Develop their skills and abilities
  • Boost their performance (which can include their confidence)
  • Deal with issues before they become major problems.

Well, all high-performing teams have developed the ability to work collaboratively and communicate frequently and effectively.  As a leader, you can use coaching conversations to create this collaborative and transparent team culture.

You can use coaching conversations to…

👉 Keep your team informed

👉 Let your team members know about updates, changes, and clarifications of your expectations

👉 Ensure a high level of collaboration on your team

These coaching conversations thus become the vehicle for high performance on your team.

  • Keep these meetings focused and consistent

These coaching conversations are important for developing an open, high-trust, and high-performing team.
