A Guide for Coaching on the Spot

July 20, 2018 08:06 AM
Coaching your employees requires you to be a quick thinker—here's the resources you need to be prepared.

Over the many years I’ve served as a human resource professional, I’ve noticed the same challenge for many leaders: They aren’t close to their coaching sources when they need them most. Tips from a book or website might come in handy while in the office, but they don’t help you in the barn. So, we have prepared a quick-hit guide for you to download and print to keep with you. Remember, you’re naturally creative and resourceful—you can do this. 

Here’s a summary of the guide, or download the pocket guide.

The Definition of Coaching

Coaching is a process of providing specific feedback that influences behavior.

To begin: 

  1. Set clear expectations. 
  2. Actively observe the employee to see if he or she is executing the plan.
  3. Provide timely feedback.  


  1. Know the benefits of rewarding positive behavior
  2. Know the perils of ignoring negative behavior
  3. Drive results

Provide appropriate feedback - often!
